Emotional scenes were witnessed on Wednesday as Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated a new school in the city.
Kejriwal was seen teary eyed during the inauguration and said he was missing his jailed colleague and his former deputy Manish Sisodia.
Sisodia has been in jail since February this year in connection with the alleged Delhi liquor scam.
"I am missing Manish ji a lot today. He had started this. It was his dream that every child should get the best possible education... He has been jailed because he has been building good schools and ensuring proper education for children," Kejriwal said reportedly.
On the occasion, the reports said Kejriwal targeted BJP, saying: "These people want to ensure that Delhi's revolution in education is finished. We will not let that happen."
"They levelled false allegations, filed false cases and have kept such a good man in jail. Why have they jailed him? There are so many dacoits roaming free in the country. If Manish Sisodia had not been ensuring good education and helping build good schools, he would not have been sent to jail," Kejriwal was quoted as having said.
He alleged that BJP is “pained” to see good schools being built and good things are being said about the AAP.
"We have to fulfill his dreams and ensure his work does not stop. I have full faith that he will be released soon. The truth cannot lose. God helps people who walk the path of truth. But until he is freed, we have to work doubly hard in this sector and ensure the best-possible education for children," Kejriwal reportedly said.
