Arvind Kejriwal said: “I know the central government phoned Mr. Channi to write a letter last night and ask for an investigation. In the next two days, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) will register it. FIR against me”.
“I welcome all the FIRs. But if this is how the central government deals with the security of the country, then I am quite worried about it … they have turned national security into a comedy. No agency found anything about me even after all this raids and one day the Prime Minister realized the great risk I was taking after a poet read a poem ,” he said.
“All the corrupt have come together. They come together because they’re afraid of me. So yeah, I’m a terrorist to them. They can’t sleep in peace because of me… 100 years ago they calling Bhagat Singh a terrorist, and today, they are calling me, a disciple of Bhagat Singh, a terrorist,” said Mr.
“I must be the sweetest terrorist around the world, who make hospitals and schools for people, sponsor pilgrimages for the elderly. I don’t believe the world would see such a terrorist build roads, fix water problems, provide free electricity and solve people’s problems,” he added.
