Reiterating his allegation that the BJP was after his life, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday claimed that it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who wanted him dead.
In a twitter exchange with Union Minister Vijay Goel, Kejriwal said it was not the personal security officers who wanted him killed but PM Modi.
Goyal, in a tweet in Hindi, had said, “I’m sorry that by suspecting your own PSO, you have given a bad name to the Delhi Police. It would be better if you choose your PSO. Let me know if you need any help. Wish you a long life”.
Earlier last week, Arvind Kejriwal had reportedly said, “My PSO reports to BJP Government, my life can be ended in minutes.”
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also said the BJP was trying to assassinate Kejriwal.
On Monday, Kejriwal questioned the safety and security of common citizens as he referred to the alleged murder of a Delhi Police Sub-Inspector.
The Chief Minister has been attacked at least six times in the presence of police, according to the party.
Earlier this month, Kejriwal was slapped by a man while he was doing a roadshow in the Moti Nagar area of the city and the incident was captured on camera.
In November, last year, a man threw chilli powder on the AAP chief outside CM’s chamber in Delhi Secretariat.
Saurabh Bhardwaj, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA from Greater Kailash, earlier said that his party doesn’t trust the Delhi Police with the safety and security of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal who has expressed fear for his life.
Following the allegations, the Delhi unit of the BJP had written to the Delhi Police demanding the withdrawal of the Kejriwal’s security cover. It also asked the police to seek an apology from the CM.
