New Delhi, Mar 31 (Truth Dive): Lalu Prasad Yadav, RJD Chief today came out strongly criticizing Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal for his comments against politicians. Kejriwal speaks like a mental and his comments against politicians show how frustrated he is, he told the reporters here on Friday.
While replying to the privilege notice, Arvind Kejriwal said that all the parties were responsible for adding disgrace to the Parliament as all the elected MPs were facing some or other charges like murder, attempt to murder, kidnapping and rape. He asked how can one expect him to respect the establishment which was full of criminals.
In a four-page reply to Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariats, he said, “There was one Parliament in which Lal Bahadur Shastri (as Rail Minister) resigned after a train accident. I would like to sacrifice anything for such a Parliament but how will I respect Parliament of present times.”
Defending himself, Kejriwal said, his comments against the politicians are from his inner heart and he is worried about the future generations. ” I am just trying to raise the issue to the people,” he added.
“If I am guilty in the eyes of your law, punish me according to those laws. I am ready to face that punishment. If you are going to punish according to your laws, my appeal to you is that, give me an opportunity to appear before you personally and present my version,” he said.
In his letter to the media Kejriwal told the reporters that Team Anna will shortly be writing a letter to the Prime Minister with strong evidence against 14 Union Cabinet ministers whom he had named as “corrupt”.
Hazare will soon set a cut-off date to register FIR against these ministers and warned the government that they will launch ‘jail bharo’ agitation, if their demands are not met. He said that corruptions have gone to the extent that people will have to think why they are paying taxes. “That time is not far when the country’s people would decide whether to give tax,” Kejriwal told media here.
