Delhi Minister Satyendra Jain lashed out at the media for leaking the videos of his carousing in Tihar Jail. When the CCTV footage of him being massaged by a man in his cell and eating food brought from home instead of fresh jail food, he came under fire in the media. In this regard, the CBI approached the court demanding that it be controlled and an investigation be conducted as to how these were leaked.
The BJP circulated these videos successively and tweeted that unlike the minister’s claims of losing 28 kg in jail, he gained another 8 kg. However, Jain told the court that he was starving in jail and that the jail authorities were not giving him enough food. Moreover, he said that he is fasting.
“Since I was arrested on May 31 and taken here, I have not been given proper medicines. For the last 12 days, the authorities have stopped me from even the minimum basic food,” he stated. Jain’s lawyer told the court that his client, who had practiced Jainism, was not being given sattvic food.
The lawyer disclosed that for six months he was eating only fruits, vegetables, and dry fruits, and these were bought outside for extra money. He explained that he was treated at the hospital for a back injury and was suffering from post-covid ailments. BJP leader and Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi dismissed these easily and tweeted that Yamuna river water has been polluted due to sins committed by AAP leaders. He said that watching Jain’s security footage from the jail gives him a very unpleasant feeling.
