New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi may “get me killed”, Arvind Kejriwal said today, unleashing one of the most severe attacks on him as the Delhi Chief Minister wondered if the country was in “safe hands”.
Referring to series of arrests of AAP MLAs and workers in the last one-and-a-half years, Kejriwal dubbed Modi to be the “mastermind” behind the “cycle of oppression” against them and that he was hell bent on “vanquishing” the party.
Calling the current period to be “very critical”, Kejriwal sought to remind AAP volunteers, MLAs and Delhi Government Ministers that things will get worse in the coming days and exhorted them to “leave” if they are not strong enough. “I want to tell all the volunteers, MLAs and Ministers that this is a very critical period. You think over it, talk to your families. This is going to get worse in the coming days.
“He (Modi) can go to any extent and may get us killed. He may get me killed as well. Talk to your families and see if you are ready for the ultimate sacrifice. All the MLAs will anyway have to go to jail. If you are ready, then stay with us or if you have weaknesses, then leave,” he said. “Modi has lost all sense of proportion and is hell bent on vanquishing the AAP,” Kejriwal said in a nearly 10-minute-long video message posted online.
