New Delhi: Alleging that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has misled the court about consulting specialists from AIIMS over whether Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal needs insulin, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Atishi on Monday asserted that CM’s diet chart was also not prepared by a specialist but by a dietician.

Addressing a press conference here, Atishi said, “ED and jail administration openly lied in the court and misled the country regarding Arvind Kejriwal’s visit to AIIMS and his chart. They said specialists from AIIMS were consulted and they have said that no insulin is needed.”

“The diet chart they presented in the court was not prepared by an endocrinologist or diabetologist, but by a dietician. We all know that dieticians are not MBBS doctors,” she said.

“On the basis of that diet cart, they have been saying in court that Kejriwal does not need insulin,” Atishi alleged.

Kejriwal on Friday filed an appeal in the court seeking consultation with his physician but this was opposed by BJP’s ED and the jail administration, the Delhi Minister claimed.

“BJP’s ED and jail administration informed the court that they would not permit Kejriwal to consult his doctor or take insulin,” she alleged.

Atishi further asserted that Kejriwal’s sugar level is fluctuating everyday. He has been a diabetic patient for 30 years. His sugar level fluctuating like this can be very dangerous.

He urgently needs advice from his doctor and insulin, she added.
