BJP MP Subramanian Swamy lashed out at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal while saying that Kejriwal is a naxalite. Swamy made the statement against the backdrop of CMs from four states (West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy, Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu and Kerela CM Pinarayi Vijayan) supporting Kejriwal for his sit-in protest at Delhi LG (Lieutenant Governor ) Anil Baijal’s house along with Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Rural Development Minister Gopal Rai.
Swamy, while speaking to news agency ANI, said, “Delhi CM is a Naxalite. Why should they (Banerjee, Kumaraswamy, Naidu and Vijayan) support him?” The four CMs have extended their support to Kejriwal against his protest demanding the LG to instruct the IAS officers in Delhi to end their strike and resume work. Kejriwal has alleged that the strike by IAS officers is disrupting the functioning of his government in Delhi. Through the strike, the Delhi CM is also demanding an approval for his government’s proposal for doorstep delivery of ration to the poor. Delhi CM and other ministers have been camping at the LG’s residence since Monday.
Subramanian Swamy also questioned Kejriwal’s creditibitlity and accused him of taking advantage of Anna Hazare.
