In a sensation allegation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that the BJP is after his life and may get him assassinated like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi one day.
Addressing an election rally in Punjab, Kejriwal said that his Personal Security Officers (PSOs) report to the Centre and vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“BJP is after my life, they will murder me one day. I will be murdered like Indira Gandhi by my PSO one day,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying.
Responding to the allegations, Delhi Police said in a statement: "Our security personnel posted in CM's security team are committed to their duties.The unit has been providing security for several high dignitaries of all political parties"
On Friday, speaking to The Indian Express, Kejriwal also said that the Muslim votes in the national capital "shifted" to the Congress at the last moment and it could hurt AAP's sentiments. Responding to this, senior Congress leader Sheila Dikshit said that the votes shifted because of the Delhi CM's bad track record.
Earlier too, Kejriwal has made similar allegations against the Modi dispensation. In July 2016, the Delhi CM had posted a video message on YouTube claiming that PM Modi and party president Amit Shah could go to any extent to get him killed.
Earlier this month, Kejriwal was slapped by a man while he was holding a roadshow in Delhi’s Moti Nagar.
In the video of the incident that went viral on social media, a man, wearing a red T-shirt, climbed on Arvind Kejriwal's open jeep and slapped the CM. The accused later said that he was a supporter of AAP.
