Coming down heavily on the ‘ISI’ remarks of an AAP minister against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union minister and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday sought a public apology from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Prasad also said while on one hand the Delhi government “expects cooperation” from the Centre, “their ministers use such a condemnable, shameful language” against the Prime Minister.

Responding to a question on a tweet by Delhi minister Kapil Mishra on Tuesday on decision to allow a Pakistani investigation team to visit Pathankot where terrorists had struck in January, Prasad said, “We condemn it very strongly and demand a public apology from Arvind Kejriwal for the completely irresponsible, malicious and shameful comment of his minister.”
“Do we have a ISI agent as PM now?? Its very serious the way PM is surrendering to anti India forces?” Mishra had tweeted on Tuesday.
Prasad said the remarks of Mishra are “limit of shamelessness. No minister of any government since Independence has used such a term for any Prime Minister.”
The Union minister was briefing reporters on the decisions taken by the Union Cabinet today. Asked whether he was seeking a public apology from Kejriwal as a Union minister or a BJP leader, Prasad said “I speak for my Prime Minister.”
