Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has claimed India’s Prime Minister Narendar Modi can get him killed to finish off his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
“Modi is frustrated, he can get me killed. They can do anything,” said Kejriwal in a video message he uploaded on YouTube, reported the Hindustan Times.
The AAP has been lately grappling with a number of cases its lawmakers based on criminal intimidation, molestation, rioting and fake education certificates.
The party wants administrative control over Delhi, the Indian capital, but has been enduring a battle by Modi’s Bhartya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government. The AAP says BJP has yet to digest their defeat in 2015 Delhi elections and is therefore engrossed in political victimisation.
“They crushed Dalits for raising their voice, they crushed (Dalit scholar) Rohith Vemula, they crushed farmers, they crushed the youth and students. They will leave no stone unturned to crush us,” Kejriwal said while speaking to his party members.
“Modi and the BJP have failed on every front – Modi is frustrated and angry; he is not thinking logically,” added Kejriwal.
Earlier, the Delhi CM said the country’s Central Bureau of Investigation had raided his house after he called the Indian PM a “coward” and “psychopath”.
“I want to tell all (AAP) volunteers, MLAs and Ministers that this is a very critical period. You think over it, talk to your families. This is going to get worse in the coming days.
“He (Modi) can go to any extent and may get us killed. He may get me killed as well. Talk to your families and see if you are ready for the ultimate sacrifice. All the MLAs will anyway have to go to jail. If you are ready, then stay with us or if you have weaknesses, then leave,” he said.
