BJP vs AAP over leaked video of Satyendar Jain getting massage in Tihar jail
After a CCTV video of the jailed AAP minister Satyendar Jain enjoying a massage surfaced on Saturday, the Delhi BJP is set to lodge a complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Tihar Jail officials for “blatantly misusing authority“.
In the videos from September 13, he is seen lounging on his bed as a person is massing his legs and hands. He is seen receiving a full body massage including a head massage a day later.
On September 21, he is seen interacting with three other persons in his cell and the individual who is providing the massage service.
Addressing a press conference, Delhi BJP showed CCTV footage of jailed Satyendar Jain enjoying a massage by the jail officers.
Delhi BJP MP Parvesh Verma, Leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa, and Youth leader Tajinder Bagga will file a complaint at Hari Nagar police station at noon.
Speaking on the CCTV footage, BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla remarked, “Instead of getting punishment, Satyendar Jain is getting VVIP fun inside Tihar jail courtesy of the AAP government which controls Tihar jail. All the jail manual rules are thrown into the dustbin as VVIP treatment is given to Satyendar Jain. Head massage and foot massage on multiple days, he is allowed to lounge, read the paper, and get mineral water inside the jail. This is not given to any other prisoner. But this person who hasn’t got bail in the last 5 months is being given this kind of treatment.”
“Kejriwal has a locker of black money whose password is with Jain. If Kejriwal doesn’t keep him happy, how will he get the password, BJP National Spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said.
The video emerged days after the Enforcement Directorate told the court that Jain was getting VIP treatment in jail.
Earlier, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi refused to grant bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Satyendar Jain and two others in the money laundering case. The minister was arrested on May 30 under various sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
