‘Stay away from politics’

Those in power will do everything in their power to hinder our work and cause pain to our family,” she wrote.
Today after 103 days, got a chance to meet Manish. Don’t know for how many more days I, my husband and family will have to face such conspiracies. Everyone used to say right, politics is dirty
But whatever they do, they will not be able to put Arvind ji and Manish’s dream of education behind bars. The politics of education will definitely win. pic.twitter.com/qCnFDQRtYYSeema (@seema_meer) June 7, 2023
However, Manish was determined. He joined forces with Arvind ji and other like-minded individuals, and together, they proved they could make a difference. Compelled to address important issues like health care, electricity and water,” she said in her message in Hindi.
Seema, who suffers from the autoimmune disorder ‘multiple sclerosis’, said she saw her husband’s unwavering determination and dedication during the meeting. “Today, I saw the same unwavering determination on Manish’s face that was evident in his words. Despite sleeping on the floor for 103 days plagued by mosquitoes, ants, insects and the scorching heat, he remains unperturbed with the dream of “uplifting society through education and doing honest politics with Arvind Kejriwal” in his eyes. No matter how many difficulties and conspiracies arise, his commitment remains unshakable,” he said.
Politics of education will win: Seema
He also mentioned how in the last three months, Manish has immersed himself in studying the history of education around the world. “He delves into the stories of leaders from various nations who have devoted themselves to education, examining how their efforts have advanced their countries. Japan, China, Singapore, Israel, the United States… He During our meeting today, along with discussing my health, these topics were also discussed.
“Those conspiring against Arvind and Manish can be happy to put one of Arvind’s soldiers in jail. What they fail to see, however, is that within the four walls of Tihar Jail, the dream of an educated and prosperous India in 2047 is being woven with unwavering force in one corner. Integrity and commitment to educational reform will undoubtedly triumph over lies and conspiracies,” his message added.
The Delhi High Court had last week allowed the jailed AAP leader to meet his ailing wife at her residence. The court had also made it clear that Sisodia would not interact with the media or any other person except his family members and also not use his phone or internet.
