Addressing at children’s event on Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that imprisoned former education minister Manish Sisodia had delivered a message to the city’s school children, stating that Sisodia was fine and that they should concentrate on their academics.
“We don’t have Manish ji with us today. Some students approached me a few days ago and expressed their longing for him. I stated that everyone, even the instructors, misses him. The children then claimed that Manish Sisodia was detained on fake charges. “I answered that the entire world knows that,” CM Kejriwal stated.
Sisodia, according to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor, has delivered a message to youngsters.
“I’m fine… I’m OK wherever I am; don’t worry about me. Pay attention to your education,” Kejriwal said, paraphrasing his former deputy chief minister as cheers erupted.
.@msisodia ने आपके लिए संदेश भेजा है, कि
“मैं ठीक हूं, आप अपनी पढ़ाई और सेहत का ध्यान रखना।”
भगवान सच्चाई पर चलने वालों की परीक्षा लेते रहते हैं, @msisodia की भी परीक्षा ली जा रही है, वो 💯/💯 लेकर बाहर आएंगे।
आप सभी बच्चे भी उनके लिए प्रार्थना करना।

“He’s sitting inside (prison), and yet he’s concerned about your education and health,” the Delhi CM said. “You must achieve high marks. God is putting him through his paces, but he will pass with flying colours and be with you all.”
In connection with the “scam” surrounding the Delhi excise policy, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) detained Sisodia on February 26. He is now in the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) custody, which, if it is not extended, will terminate on March 22. The AAP politician and his party have denied any wrongdoing and have accused the BJP-led federal government of engaging in a “witch hunt” and “misuse” of government institutions.
