BJP's National Vice President Baijayant Panda on Saturday minced no words in lashing out at Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party president Arvind Kejriwal over allegations against him of engaging with pro-separatists elements.
Panda spoke at a massive rally organised by the BJP Delhi Mahila unit near the Red Fort where a strong warning was issued to the AAP chief for harbouring anti-national sentiments.
Addressing the mammoth gathering of over ten thousand women party workers, Panda said that Punjab and the country as a whole had once suffered the immeasurable pain of partition. “However, Kejriwal's dreams of separating the country to become the prime minister of Khalistan will never be successful,” he said.
"Kejriwal's alleged links with terrorist groups is a matter of serious concern. It seems that his party is no longer Aam Aadmi but Atankwadi Aadmi Party," Panda told news agency ANI on the sidelines of the Samavesh (gathering).
Recently, Kumar Vishwas, a former AAP leader had accused Delhi CM Kejriwal of supporting separatist elements during the high-voltage campaign for the assembly elections in Punjab.
Vishwas, in a video, was seen saying, “One day, he (Kejriwal) told me he would either become CM (of Punjab) or first PM of an independent nation.. he wants power at any cost.”
However, responding to Vishwas' allegation, the AAP national convenor described himself as “world’s sweetest terrorist” who builds roads, hospitals and sends elderly people to pilgrimage."
