New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal’s sofa protest at the Delhi Lieutenant Governor’s house will now have half its original members. Two of the ministers, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, will resume work today after being released from hospital, where they were treated yesterday after their condition worsened because of their hunger strike.
“With doctor’s care and your blessings, I am recovering fast,” he tweeted.
“Yesterday (Monday), my ketone level was 7.4 and BP reached 184/100, which was leading to renal failure. But now everything is under control. If doctors allow I’ll try to be back to work today only,” he said.
Chief Minister Kejriwal and another minister Gopal Rai are still at Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s home Raj Niwas.
Mr Kejriwal tweeted: “The Lt. Governor could not find eight minutes in eight days for the people of Delhi. Hope he finds some time today.”
Yesterday, the AAP leaders were rebuked by the High Court, which said: “This can’t be called a strike. You can’t go inside someone’s office or house and hold a strike there.”
Two other petitions have been filed – one filed by BJP Leader of Opposition in assembly Vijender Gupta and another against what Mr Kejriwal’s government calls a “strike” by IAS officers. The court said the IAS association will be party to the cases, all of which will be heard on Friday.
