New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of ‘protecting’ those who raised anti-India slogans at the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus here, saying he wanted to please his ally Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir.
“I question why he has not got arrested those who raised anti-national slogans. He did not because he knows that they are from Kashmir and (PDP leader) Mehbooba Mufti would get disappointed if he arrests them,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader said.
“Our soldiers are dying every day on the borders but Modi is protecting anti-nationals just for the sake of his government in Kashmir,” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
The comments come a day after he, along with Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechuri, was charged with sedition.
“I have been charged with sedition because I keep raising my voice for Dalits, poor and backwards. And that is why I am an anti-national in their view,” Kerjriwal said.
He said he would “keep raising” his voice for Dalits, poor and people from backward classes. “No one can silence me. I am a bigger patriot than Modi.”
