    "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.
