Jain was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) under charges of money laundering on May 31 this year. Several purported videos showing him getting massage, meeting visitors and having fruits and vegetables in his prison cell have emerged in recent weeks.
The Madhya Pradesh chief minister also cited the name of former AAP councilor Tahir Hussain, who is lodged in jail as an accused in the north east Delhi riots in 2020, saying he should be presented with "Danga Ratna" award.
Chouhan appealed people to support and vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has earned a lot of respect in the world.
"Prior to 2014, India was not respected that much in the world. Even smaller nations used to dare us. But after Modi's arrival, a miracle has happened," he said and claimed that Indian students stuck in war-torn Ukraine were provided a safe passage by Russian and Ukrainian forces as they carried Indian flags during their evacuation.
He added that the COVID-19 situation in the country, especially Delhi, was handled by Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah by developing the vaccine and helping the needy with food and ration.
Chouhan also cautioned Delhiites not to be lured by Kejriwal's promises of freebies.
"Kejriwal ji Kalakaar hain. Kai tarah ki ghoshna karte hain. Unke chakkar mein mat aana (Kejriwal is shrewd and makes all kinds of announcements. Do not be lured by his words," he said while appealing people to vote for the saffron party.
He also accused the AAP leader of "betraying" everyone, including his Guru (Anna Hazare) and friends (Kumar Vishwas). "Aisa koi saga nahi jisko Kejriwal ne thaga nahin (There is no one who has not been duped by Kejriwal)," he charged. The election to 250 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be held on December 4.
