Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday dubbed as “shameful” BJP leader Shyam Jaju’s remarks that the AAP leader is doing politics on every other “minor” issue in the capital.
Referring to Kejriwal’s attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung over the rape of two minors in the Capital, Jaju accused the Aam Aadmi Party of “misleading” people of Delhi.
“Be it any minor issue in Delhi, Kejriwal is indulging in politics of blame-game. He is not considering the fact that the people of Delhi has given him the mandate to run government and make development his agenda by taking everyone together,” Jaju, BJP’s Delhi in-charge, said.
In his response, Kejriwal tweeted, “Shyam Jaju says rape is a small incident? Shameful,” while AAP said that the remarks were a manifestation of BJP’s “anti-people stand”.
“On one hand, the BJP Govt takes no steps to improve women’s security, on the other its leaders make light of brutal crimes against women,” the party added.
A two-and-half year old and another five-year-old child were brutally raped in the capital on Friday, barely a week after a sexual assault of a minor, triggering widespread outrage and a political slugfest.
