AAP fear-mongering on Kejriwal's diabetes who stopped taking insulin months back: Tihar Jail's report reaches Delhi LG

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal discontinued insulin intake months before his arrest and is now using a basic oral anti-diabetes medication, according to officials citing a report by the Tihar jail administration to Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena, said media reports.

"The entire narrative being built and fear-mongering by the Aam Aadmi Party regarding Kejriwal's sugar levels, is only based on a purported treatment of Kejriwal being carried out by a Telangana-based private clinic. Interestingly, Kejriwal, as advised by the Telangana doctor, was on an insulin-reversal programme and the doctor had stopped insulin dosage much before the arrest of Kejriwal," the Tihar jail report said, according to a report in the media.

AAP leader and Delhi minister Atishi claimed that a conspiracy is being hatched under BJP’s direction to kill the AAP chief in prison and questioned, “Why is there an issue for the Tihar administration to provide insulin to the chief minister, given that he has been using it for 12 years?”

Kejriwal, who is being treated for diabetes by a private doctor based in Telangana, ceased insulin intake a few months ago, according to officials citing the Tihar report. At the time of his arrest, he was relying on a basic anti-diabetes oral medication called Metformin.

In his medical examinations at Tihar jail, Kejriwal informed doctors that he had been using insulin "for the past few years and discontinued it a few months ago," the report stated.

"Kejriwal's alleged treatment at a private clinic in Telangana is a curious case where Delhi's Chief Minister, who boasts of a world-class health infrastructure in Delhi is surreptitiously getting treated at a south India clinic of which he even fails to provide medical documents," the report said.

"Notably, the entry of this Telangana clinic in the whole episode surrounding Kejriwal's arrest in the excise scam comes close on the heels of the south Indian liquor cartel that played a key role in framing and execution of the now-scrapped excise policy of the AAP Government," the report said.
