‘Arrest me in six months or I will arrest you’

The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal dared the Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia to get him arrested else he will arrest him after that. 

 

Kejriwal told Majithia after getting bail in a defamation case filed by him. The court has fixed October 15 as the next date for hearing.

 

The AAP leader said he was not afraid of "false cases" and warned Majithia that "the people will take revenge from him in the coming elections".

 

"I challenge Majithia to arrest me in six months as they are in power. Else, I will arrest him after six months," the AAP national convenor said.

 

"The people of Punjab will take revenge for each and every case against them. In the coming elections, people will take revenge from Majithia," he said. "After six months, I will reconstruct a new Punjab," he added.

 

Kejriwal said Punjab was in a bad state due to the drug problem and renewed his allegations against Majithia who is the brother-in-law of SAD chief and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal.

 

"I ask you all, who is the drug dealer in Punjab? I want to ask him, how many mouths will you shut? When I travelled across Punjab, people told me that he files false cases to threaten them," Kejriwal claimed.

 

"If he and the Badals can file defamation cases against me, I can understand what he can do to the 'Aam Aadmi'," he alleged.

 

"The court has summoned me, so I came here. I am the Chief Minister of Delhi. God has blessed me with many things but when a case is filed against a common man, his entire life is ruined in going to courts. Today I want to say I'm not afraid of your false cases," he said.
