Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal finally hit back at the BJP leader and Lok Sabha MP Parvesh Verma today over his remark of calling him a terrorist last week in an outrageous verbal assault at an election rally in West Delhi. After repeatedly being labelled as a terrorist by the MP, Mr Kejriwal held a brief, yet an emotional press conference, where he asked the Delhi voters that how has he become a terrorist? He has arranged for medicines for Delhi people and did so much for the needy in the past 5 years. He has never thought of himself or his family and he is ready to give his life for the nation.
CM Kejriwal also said that he is a diabetes patient and takes four insulin a day. Doctors also told him not to join politics as he wouldn’t live but he did what was right for the country.
The derogatory statement is believed to be made by Mr Verma on January 25 at an election rally for Kailash Sankla in Madipur constituency. Following this, CM Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has written a letter to Delhi Chief Electoral Officer, which is yet to be moved to the Election Commission (EC). Through the letter, AAP has demanded an FIR against the BJP leader Parvesh Verma for repeatedly calling Mr Kejriwal a terrorist. Mr Verma is already under the investigation by the EC for claiming Shaheen Bagh’s anti-CAA protestors to rape people’s sisters and daughters.
He added that if he wanted to… he could have gone abroad as many of his friends and colleagues did. He gave up his job and which terrorist does all this, he questioned. CM Kejriwal is an IIT-Kharagpur graduate which is one of the most prestigious institutes for engineering. He concluded with that he leaves this up to Delhi’s people to decide that he is their son, their brother or a terrorist?
Delhi Assembly Election is scheduled for February 8 and counting of votes will be conducted on February 11. CM Kejriwal is busy these days in campaigning, roadshows and election rallies for the party ahead of the election day. So far, many exit polls and trends have shown a win for AAP in this election.
