NEW DELHI: After the arrest of its Narela MLA Sharad Chauhan, 12th AAP lawmaker to be arrested by the police, the Aam Aadmi Party has launched a sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking whether he (PM Modi) has lost his “mental balance” and questioned whether the country is “safe” in the hands of a person who acts with such “vengeance”.
Aam Aadmi Party’s Ashish Khetan alleged that PM Modi spends every waking moment in plotting the ‘fixing’ of all his political opponents.
He further alleged that Prime Minister Modi appears to be concerned only with political persecution.
“He (PM Modi) appears wholly unfit to lead this country as the Prime Minister. Can we trust the country’s administration in the hands of a person who spends his every waking moment in plotting the fixing of all his political opponents? Is such a person psychologically and temperamentally fit to run the country?”
“The way Narendra Modi is running his reign of vindictive politics is dangerous for the country. He is targeting his opponents in a systematic manner, be it his action against (Gujarat cadre IAS officer) Pradeep Sharma, other officers, AAP MLAs or against the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi.”
AAP lawmaker Sharad Chauhan was arrested by the police in connection with the suicide of a woman worker of the ruling party, taking the total number of arrested AAP MLAs to 12.
Party leader Ashutosh said instead of appreciating AAP government’s “good” work in health and education sector, the Prime Minister is sending its MLAs to jail.
“Another AAP MLA arrested. Has Modi gone mad? Has he lost his mental balance? If PM acts with such anger / vengeance then is country safe!”
“Great initiatives are taken by Delhi government in education-health… instead of praising, Modi is sending AAP MLAs to jail. Is the country safe in his hands?” Ashutosh said.
Last week Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was conspiring to kill him.
After a CBI raid at Delhi Secretariat, Mr Kejriwal had also called the PM Modi a “psychopath”.
