Arvind Kejriwal, Capt Amarinder Singh in bitter Twitter spat over sacrilege row


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday blamed the Punjab government headed by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh for not punishing the murderers two individuals, who were killed police firing in the immediate aftermath of the sacrilege of the Sikh holy book.

Krishan Bhagwan Singh and Gurjit Singh were killed in police firing in 2015 at Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan. Taking to Twitter, Kejriwal wrote, “On 3rd death anniversary of Behbal Kalan victims Krishan Bhagwan Singh& Gurjit Singh,I offer condolences 2 their families. Highly unfortunate that @capt_amarinder govt has badly failed 2 punish the culprits of sacrilege of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji &the murderers of 2 innocents.”

This evoked an instant response from Singh, who asked Kejriwal to refrain from ‘politicking’ the tragic event of 2015. Taking a dig at Kejriwal’s apologies to the Badal family over false allegations, Singh wrote, “Stop politicking @ArvindKejriwal. It’s shocking a man in your position talks of subverting law instead of waiting for SIT’s findings. We don’t live in anarchy. In any case who better than you’d know what happens when one doesn’t go by law. Remember your apology to the Badal clan?”

Both leaders were engaged in several Twitter spats in the run-up to the assembly elections last year, when the Congress won a historic landslide. Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party could only win little over 20 seats.
