Former AAP leader and Arvind Kejriwal's close confidant Dr Kumar Vishwas said on Wednesday (February 16) that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wanted to be the first prime minister of Khalistan.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had threatened media houses with legal action if they raised the allegations levelled against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by poet Dr Kumar Vishwas.
Before Dr Vishwas quit AAP, he was a close confidant of Kejriwal and AAP's in charge of Punjab in the last assembly elections in 2017. Dr Vishwas said Arvind Kejriwal wanted to be the first prime minister of Khalistan. Dr Vishwas said he had warned Kejriwal against taking help from Khalistanis in the last assembly elections but he did not oblige.
AAP MLA in Delhi, national spokesperson and Punjab in-charge Raghav Chadha threatened media houses with legal action if they telecast Dr Vishwas's interview.
In a series of posts on Twitter, Chadha said, "Malicious, unfounded, fabricated, inflammatory insinuations made by Mr. Vishwas are not only demonstrably defamatory but is redolent of promoting hatredill will,hostility in society and in particular against AAP, as well as supporters as also intending to create a situation of unrest."
"In view thereof, it is forcefully submitted that in case any channel publishes/ circulated aids or provide platform to disseminate the same we shall be found forced to take stringent legal action which shall include the commission of the offences of abetment/ aiding him," he added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a public rally in Punjab today (February 17), warned people about the ill intentions of such politicians who are ready to divide the country for political power.
Without naming Arvind Kejriwal and Kumar Vishwas, PM Modi said what the former close confidant of Kejriwal has said about him should be a warning for all. Alluding to Dr Kumar Vishwas, PM Modi said he was not just a close confidant of Kejriwal but is also a renowned poet loved by the young generation.
Delhi CM Kejriwal had confided in Dr Vishwas in 2017 that once the party secures a majority in the Punjab assembly with the help of the separatists, he would ensure a fight between (HS) Phoolka group and Bhagwant Mann group and emerge as the consensus candidate.
Delhi chief minister's former colleague Yogendra Yadav also expressed views similar to Dr Vishwas'. He, too, said Kejriwal had no problem in taking help from separatists (Khalistanis) to win Punjab.
