Sunita Kejriwal reads out Arvind Kejriwal's 6 poll promises in INDIA bloc's Ramlila Maidan rally

New Delhi/UNI/IBNS: Jailed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s wife Sunita Kejriwal on Sunday stepped into the political arena, unleashing a blistering attack on the BJP-led central government as she delivered her husband's message in INDIA bloc's rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan.

In a fiery speech, Sunita Kejriwal accused the BJP of targeting the opposition parties using central agencies ahead of the national elections.

Speaking at the massive rally, attended by leaders of the Opposition INDIA bloc such as Rahul Gandhi, Uddhav Thackeray, Mehbooba Mufti, and Mallikarjun Kharge, among others, Sunita Kejriwal read out a message conveyed by her imprisoned husband.

"The people of India stand with Arvind Kejriwal. He can't be kept in jail forever," Sunita Kejriwal said today in her first major political speech ever in front of hundreds of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters.

"I am not asking for votes from you. I am not asking you to help defeat someone in elections. I am only asking 140 crore Indians to help in taking this country forward," Sunita Kejriwal said, quoting her husband's message from jail.

She read out six guarantees to people if elected to power.

"We are going to give six guarantees. They are 24x7 electricity, free power for the poor, world-class schools in villages, Mohalla clinics in villages and multi-specialty hospital in districts, fair price (MSP) in line with Swaminathan report, and full state status for Delhi. These guarantees will be fulfilled in five years," read the message from Arvind Kejriwal.

Flexing muscles at Ramlila Maidan in the national capital, opposition alliance leaders on Sunday extended their support to arrested Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and also Hemant Soren, the former Chief Minister of Jharkhand.

The leaders appealed people to vote out Modi government in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

Speaking at the rally, CPI General Secretary D Raja said, "My party Communist Party of India joins all of you to declare our common resolve to save India, to save Constitution, to save Democracy, and to defeat the BJP."

The message from TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee read, "We are part of I.N.D.I.A. alliance with all our strength."
