Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday greeted his former deputy Manish Sisodia on his birthday, and said he lauds his courage in an “era of dictatorship”.
Sisodia is currently in jail in connection with the alleged excise policy scam. He was arrested by the CBI in February last year and subsequently resigned from the post of Deputy Chief Minister in the AAP government in Delhi.
Kejriwal charged that Sisosida was kept in jail by the BJP in a fake case.
“This friendship is very old. Our affection and trust are very strong. This passion to work for the people is also very old. No matter how hard the conspirators try…. This friendship, affection and trust will never be broken.
“The BJP has kept Manish behind the bars for last 11 months in a fake case. But Manish is standing against their oppression. He has not bowed down to their dictatorship now and will not do so in the future. Manish’s courage inspires us all in this era of dictatorship. Happy birthday Manish,” Kejriwal wrote on X.
