New Delhi | Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a roadshow in Delhi on Sunday said if people choose Aam Aadmi Party on May 25, he won't have to go back to jail.

Accompanied by his Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, Kejriwal held a roadshow in Moti Nagar in support of party's New Delhi Lok Sabha candidate Somnath Bharti.

"I have to go back to jail after 20 days. If you choose jhadu (AAP's symbol), I won't have to go back to jail," the chief minister said.

The AAP national convenor is out on interim bail till June 1. He has to surrender on June 2.

"They sent me to jail because I worked for you. The BJP does not want that work of Delhi people are done," he said.

Kejriwal alleged that his insulin injections were stopped for 15 days inside TIhar jail.

"If I went back to jail, the BJP would stop your work, free electricity, degrade schools and shut down hospitals and Mohalla Clinics," he charged.

He also asked people to vote for Bharti since he would be available for people in need even at odd hours.

The polling for all seven seats in Delhi will take place on May 25.

Kejriwal to campaign for INDIA bloc candidates in UP, Jharkhand, Maharashtra next week

New Delhi | Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will campaign for the Lok Sabha poll candidates of the INDIA bloc parties in Lucknow, Jamshedpur and Mumbai next week.

The national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will campaign in favour of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) candidates across the country, Sandeep Pathak, the party's national general secretary (organisation) said in a statement on Sunday.

Kejriwal will campaign in Lucknow on May 15, in Jamshedpur on May 16 and in Mumbai on May 17, he added.

Kejriwal, who came out of Tihar Jail earlier this week, said he will work tirelessly and campaign across the country to end the "dictatorship" of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.

Pathak said the AAP leader has been working day and night for people. He is making every possible effort to ensure the victory of the INDIA bloc in the ongoing polls and will, therefore, go to different parts of the country to support the alliance partners, Pathak added.

All the INDIA bloc constituents want Kejriwal to visit their states and campaign for them, he said.

"We all know that the popularity of Kejriwal is increasing rapidly throughout the country. The people of the entire country love him and want to see him campaigning," Pathak said.

Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on March 21 in connection with a money-laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise scam. The Supreme Court has granted interim bail to the AAP leader to participate in the Lok Sabha poll campaigning. His bail will expire on June 1.
