PTC News Desk: Delhi's Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, issued his second order from within the Enforcement Directorate's confinement, emphasising the provision of free medicines and pathological tests at government-run Mohalla clinics. This directive, relayed by Delhi Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj, underscores Kejriwal's commitment to ensuring minimal inconvenience for Delhi residents during his incarceration.

Bharadwaj stressed Kejriwal's concern for the underprivileged, emphasising the necessity for free access to medication, particularly for those reliant on government healthcare services. Furthermore, he highlighted the importance of free medical tests provided by Mohalla clinics, addressing issues of accessibility and quality.

Despite his confinement, Kejriwal's focus remains steadfast on serving the people of Delhi. His directives, delivered through ministers, underscore his dedication to maintaining essential services and addressing citizens' concerns. Atishi, another Delhi minister, previously shared Kejriwal's directive regarding water supply and sewer problems, highlighting the Chief Minister's ongoing commitment to governance despite his personal predicament.

In response to AAP's assertions of Kejriwal's continued leadership from jail, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari criticised the narrative, suggesting it was orchestrated for political gain. Tiwari questioned the legitimacy of governing from confinement, contrasting it with the operation of criminal enterprises.

Kejriwal's detention, stemming from allegations related to Delhi's former liquor policy, places him in the custody of the Enforcement Directorate. Despite AAP's denial of wrongdoing and accusations of political manipulation by the BJP-led Centre, Kejriwal remains in custody, continuing to discharge his duties as Chief Minister through his ministers and directives.
