Hours after the jailed Delhi Chief Minister’s wife, Sunita Kejriwal, urged people in a video message to reach out to her husband via a WhatsApp number to support him, BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla claimed in a post on X that AAP has deleted the number as their move backfired with people demanding Kejriwal’s resignation in overwhelming numbers.

Citing his sources in AAP, Poonawalla said, “...My source in AAP tells me that the WhatsApp number issued by Mrs. Sunita Kejriwal was deleted within a few hours as people of Delhi & Bharat demanded Kejriwal’s resignation in overwhelming numbers.”

Poonawalla also shared a photo on X indicating that the phone number 8297324624 is no longer available.

Arvind Kejriwal’s wife, Sunita Kejriwal, in a video message on Friday, a day after the custody of Arvind Kejriwal was extended till April 1 by the local court, launched the ‘Kejriwal Ko Ashirvaad’ campaign and urged people to support him by sending messages that she will deliver to him in jail. In the video message, Mrs. Kejriwal said, “I will deliver your messages to him in jail.”

According to other posts on X, it has been said that people also hurled abuses at Kejriwal and mocked the Delhi CM soon after, which led AAP to decide to delete the number and stop the campaign.

AAP yet to response on the matter

However, there has been no response from AAP on this matter yet. It remains to be seen what the party will say and if indeed the WhatsApp has been deleted how it will counter Poonawalla’s claims. Poonawalla has been on a spree, giving news bytes on national television, mocking the initiative launched by Kejriwal’s wife after his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in the now-scrapped Delhi liquor police case.

It seems that AAP's move to gain sympathy for its leader using Sunita Kejriwal, who is now spearheading the campaign, is not working even after releasing multiple video messages, urging people to back jailed Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

The Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday extended the custodial remand of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by four more days in a money laundering case related to the Excise Policy.

In court, Arvind Kejriwal said, "The real liquor scam began post the ED investigation. The motive of the ED is to crush the Aam Aadmi Party." Kejriwal said in court that the case has been going on for two years and no allegations have been proven.

Meanwhile, a protest will be held by the INDIA bloc outside the BJP headquarters in the national capital tomorrow against the arrest of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Congress, AAP, and the Left parties will participate in the demonstration."
