Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday thanked people for their wishes on his birthday, but said he was missing his former deputy Manish Sisodia. “Today is my birthday. Many people are sending their wishes. Thank you so much! But I miss Manish. He is in jail for a false case. Let’s all take a pledge today – that we will do everything within our means to provide the best quality education to every child born in India,” he said on X, formerly Twitter.
Kejriwal, who turned 55, also asked everyone to take a pledge to lay the foundation for a strong India. “That will lay the foundation for a strong India. That will help us realise our dream of making India No. 1. That will also make Manish happy,” he said.
Later in the day, the Delhi Assembly extended wishes to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo, with Deputy Speaker Rakhi Birla praying for his long life and hoping that he scales new heights in his political life.  The AAP also wished Kejriwal on his special day by calling him the “man who invented zero electricity bills” and “the champ who made us believe that Indian government schools can compete with top-notch private schools”.
Taking to X, the party said, “Happy Birthday to the leader who made basic necessities like education, healthcare, electricity, & water the pillars of our political discourse.
