Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday launched stinging attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing him of protecting anti-national elements for political gains.
Kejriwal’s outbursts came hours after jantakareporter.com reported about a sedition case being filed against him, Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi, CPIM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and other opposition leaders in a Hyderabad police station.
Kejriwal said, “They have filed a a sedition case against me. I’m an anti-national because I’ve been raising voices for Dalits, underprivileged and poor. I will continue to raise my voices for them. You can stifle my voice.”
Addressing Modi, the Delhi CM said that he was a bigger patriot than him. He asked why Modi had failed to arrest those who shouted anti-India slogans.
He said, “I’m bigger patriot than Modiji. I want to ask why Modi ji has not been able to arrest those who chanted anti-India slogans? Is it because those chanted anti-India slogans are from Kashmir and arresting them will make Mehbooba Mufti angry?
“Our soldiers are dying everyday at the border and Modiji is protecting anti-national elements to form government in Kashmir.”
The complaint asked the court to direct the ‘S.H.O Saroor Nagar, U/Sec 156(3) Cr.P.C for investigation and report and punish’ all the accused for the offences U/Sec 124,124-A r/w 34 IPC.
Among other leaders named in the complaint are CPIM general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI’s D Raja, JDU’s KC Tyagi, Congress’ Ajay Maken and Anand Sharma.
The complainant, a BJP supporter, had alleged that by going to JNU to join protesting students, these leaders had committed sedition.
