BJP may get me killed like Indira Gandhi, my PSO reports to PM Narendra Modi: Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi: In a sensational allegation against Prime Minister Narendra Modi Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal today claimed that the saffron party may get him assassinated like former PM Indira Gandhi. The CM further claimed that his Personal Security Officers (PSO) report to the BJP government at the Centre.
The CM gave this statement while campaigning in Punjab. Meanwhile, the Delhi police said that the security personnel posted in CM’s security team are committed to their duties.
“Our security personnel posted in CM’s security team are committed to their duties. The unit has been providing security for several high dignitaries of all political parties,” Delhi police told news agency ANI.
This is not the first time that the Delhi CM has made this claim. In July 2016, the Delhi CM in a dramatic video message posted on YouTube had claimed that PM Modi and party president Amit Shah can go to any extent to get him killed.
In his 2016 statement, Kejriwal had described the PM as the “mastermind” behind the arrest of AAP MLAs.
Recently, Kejriwal was slapped by a man while holding a roadshow in Delhi’s Moti Nagar area.
In the video of the incident that went viral on social media, a man, wearing a red T-shirt, climbed on Arvind Kejriwal’s open jeep and slapped the CM. The accused later said that he was a supporter of AAP.
Reacting on Delhi CM’s statement AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj said, “After becoming CM he has been attacked at least 6 times in presence of police. Even after such incidents, no action was taken. We don’t trust the Delhi Police.”
Meanwhile, Kejriwal today said that the Muslim vote “shifted” to the Congress at the last minute during the Lok Sabha polls in the national capital and hinted that it will hurt the party.
Commenting on Kejriwal’s statement, Congress leader Sheila Dikshit said that the votes shifted towards the grand old party because of Delhi CM’s bad record.
Speaking to ANI Dikshit said, “Nobody asked people to just vote for me. They vote for us because our record is such. So, if people are supporting Congress, then it is a reflection on Kejriwal’s record.”
The polling for seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi was held during the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections on May 12 and counting will take place on May 23.
