  • | Monday | 1st April, 2024

Jailed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwals wife Sunita Kejriwal on Sunday read out a message with six guarantees —24x7  free bijli to mohalla clinics in every village and granting full statehood to excellent schools in every village and neighbourhood—from the historic Ramlila Maidan at the Oppositions Loktantra Bachao rally that her husband had given to her for the people of the country. This was her maiden speech at a political rally  since the arrest of Kejriwal in the liquorgate scam case, which is widely seen as next chief minister of Delhi in case the resignation of her husband.  At the rally, wives of Manish Sisodia, Satyendra Jain, Sanjay Singh and Hemant Soren who are in jail, were present to express solidarity with Sunita. Kejriwals message included six guarantees on behalf of the INDIA bloc — uninterrupted power supply, free electricity for the poor, government schools, Mohalla Clinics and multispeciality hospitals, minimum support price for farmers, and full statehood for Delhi. There will be no power cut across the country and I will guarantee that there is free power for the poor. Schools for each child, mohalla clinics, big multispecialty hospitals in every corner, Swaminathan Committee-approved rates for farmers — these are part of the guarantees I want to make to the people of India on behalf of our alliance. The people of Delhi have faced injustice in last 75 years. We will make Delhi a full state if the INDIA bloc comes to power., Sunita said, sharing stage with Congress leader Sonia Gandhi and other INDIA Bloc leaders at Ramlila Maidan while reading out her husbands message.  Sunita was seen sitting in the front row at the stage with Sonia Gandhi while Delhi Minister Atishi was seen in the second row. She added: If voted to power, the INDIA bloc will fulfil six guarantees, including good hospitals and education. If you give opportunity to the INDIA bloc, we will build a great nation. "If you give an opportunity to the INDIA bloc, we will build a great nation," Sunita said while reading out her husbands message. "Mother India is very sad, Mother India is in pain. Moaning in pain. When people do not get two square meals a day due to inflation, Mother India feels very sad. When the children of Mother India do not get good education, people die without proper treatment even after 75 years, then Mother India feels helpless and helpless. When there are long power cuts in many parts of the country, roads are broken, the condition is bad even after 75 years, then the mother feels a lot of pain, she read. Sunita further stated that Arvind Kejriwal seeked forgiveness from all the partners of the INDIA Alliance. "Today, I seek apology from all INDIA Alliance partners because I did not seek their permission for making these announcements. It was impossible to seek their agreement or permission since Im in jail. I hope that nobody will have any objections to these announcements." The Delhi CMs wife had started off her speech, calling Arvind Kejriwal a sher and saying that he would be out of EDs custody soon. Tyranny wont work and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cannot be kept behind bars for long. PM Modiji put my husband in jail… did he do the right thing? These BJP people are saying that he should resign… should he resign? It seems like he was a freedom fighter in his last birth who was martyred and in this life, he has returned to fight a similar struggle again, Sunita  said. Sunita has been in the limelight since her husbands arrest. She is in the forefront of protests and has held pressers thrice to convey the messages sent by Kejriwal from the ED custody to the people. The video, which was live-streamed by the Aam Aadmi Party, showed Sunita sitting on the same chair from which her husband used to address the media for the first time. Not surprisingly, the chair and the background, which has portraits of Bhagat Singh and Dr BR Ambedkar along with the Tricolour, attracted more eyeballs than her address. After her video,  circulated on social media that the chatter about Sunita Kejriwals purported political entry kicked-off. She also released two WhatsApp numbers for the public to directly connect with people against the CMs arrest. On Saturday, Kalpana Soren, the wife of former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren who is in ED custody, had met Sunita. AAP Delhi state convener Gopal Rai said the Ramlila Maidan is a historic place which has changed the countrys history several times. "Whenever a crisis has arisen in the country, a voice of change has echoed from here."  "If they (BJP) win the Lok Sabha elections, the country will face consequences. This is a do or die situation for all of us. Take leave from your work for the next two months and put all your efforts to save our democracy," he said at the rally.
