Amid the controversy surrounding his family-run Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust, law minister Salman Khurshid on Wednesday found himself in another row as TV channels aired footage that was interpreted as a threat to India Against Corruption leader Arvind Kejriwal.
"I have been made the law minister and asked to work with the pen. I will work with the pen, but also with blood," the footage showed Khurshid telling his supporters on Tuesday night.
Apparently referring to Kejriwal's threat to stage protests in his Farrukhabad Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh from November 1, Khurshid said: "Let them come to Farrukhabad and visit Farrukhabad. But let him also return from Farrukhabad."
"They say we will ask questions and you have to give answers. We say you hear the answers and forget about asking questions," he said.
Kejriwal, who has alleged financial bungling of over Rs. 71 lakh by Khurshid's trust, interpreted the comments as a murder threat.
