Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party are under fire over a video showing Delhi minister Satyendar Jain receiving a massage in Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
Delhi minister Satyendar Jain was detained in May in an accused money laundering case.
Several party leaders posted the video on Twitter and other social media platforms, repeating the BJP’s accusation that Mr. Jain receives preferential treatment in prison.
AAP has shot back, labeling the BJP ‘shameless’ for making a spectacle of an unwell man undergoing care.
According to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, a hospital recommended rehabilitation to Satyendar Jain after he underwent two spinal operations due to an injury sustained in jail.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has become a ‘spa and massage party’, Mr. Kejriwal to explain Satyendar Jain’s behavior in jail and the AAP of hypocrisy over “VIP culture.” JP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said.
