"The manner in which the BJP imprisoned CM Kejriwal, despite his overwhelming electoral mandate, and without any substantiated evidence or formal charges, has sparked widespread anger among the residents of Delhi," Rai said, adding that people are supporting us to give the answer of 'jail' with votes on May 25".
