Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has insulted veteran leaders like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi by not letting them contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Kejriwal noted that the attitude of the Prime Minister is against the Hindu culture which teaches people to respect their elders.
“The way Modi is insulting L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, it is completely against the Hindu culture. Hindu culture teaches people to respect their elders and not insult them.
“People are talking about why Modi is insulting Joshi and Sushma (External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj),” he said in a series of tweets.
जिन्होंने घर बनाया उन्ही बुजर्गो को घर से निकाल दिया? जो अपने बुजर्गो का नही हो सकता वो किसका होगा? क्या यही भारतीय सभ्यता है? हिन्दू संस्क्रति तो ये नही कहती कि बुजर्गों को बेज्जत करो— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) March 26, 2019
देश के लोगो मे चर्चा है कि मोदी जी आडवाणी जोशी और सुषमा की बेज्जती क्यो कर रहे है? https://t.co/bcU1uZbK69
Former BJP president and Lok Sabha MP Murli Manohar Joshi has been asked by his party to not contest the upcoming general elections, a development in line with its decision to not field many of its veterans, including its founding member and longest serving chief L K Advani, in the polls. “Those elders who build the home have been thrown out. When he cannot support his elders then who can he support,” Kejriwal said in another tweet.
