Posted by

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took a dig at the INDIA bloc’s ‘Save Democracy’ rally to be held at Ramlila Maidan on Sunday. The party said it was the same place where Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal sat in protest against the Congress-led Government’s corruption over a decade back.

Notably, the bloc is organising the rally against the BJP-led NDA government days after Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate, over an alleged liquor police case. Among those who will attend the rally include several leaders of the Opposition parties including, from the Congress and RJD.

Anna Hazare, Kejriwal protested against then Congress Govt at same place

“It is very interesting that this rally is taking place, at the same place about 12-13 years ago, a rally of Anna Hazare was held and Arvind Kejriwal also participated. Kejriwal used to say that he was a social activist and never wanted to come into politics. Who were they protesting against then? Congress party was ruling and the definition of corruption at that time was very interesting, you must remember 2G, CWG, Coal Scam,” BJP leader and Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Arvind Kejriwal himself involved in corruption: Hardeep Puri

He further added, “They did not just shake hands with them but hugged them and are now in an alliance with the ones they were making allegations against. There are people against whom Kejriwal was fighting, now what will they do tomorrow, they will discuss whether Kejriwal who is currently in ED custody should be released? I want to ask you if people are happy that Kejriwal is in custody? He was against corruption and liquor and today he is involved in a liquor scam.”

Earlier in the day, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh, while addressing a press conference had said that leaders of 28 Opposition parties will attend the rally. Among the issues that will be raised against the government include rising inflation, an increasing unemployment rate in 45 years, and growing economic disparities, among others.
