“Both farmers and soldiers are committing suicide in Modi Raj. That means the Prime Minister is lying that OROP has been implemented. Why would Ram Kishan ji have committed suicide if OROP was being implemented?” Kejriwal said on Twitter.

The whole nation should stand up for their rights, he urged.

    You need to have some portfolio so that the rest of India does not have to hear your views on everything under the sun. India does not see you as a national leader given your Delhi performance. India has already chosen.

        Kejtiwal should concentrate on Delhi's development instead of trying to throw dirt on Modi.ever Since the time of his unfortunate winning in delhi elections, he has been barking at modi when ever he is told to do so by "Madame"

              kejri wal has absolutely no idea when he says that orop has not been implemented. For a person of his rank and profile. he cant be shooting arrows in the air without verifying any fact. his peer group of IIT AND civil services must be hiding their faces in shame for the standard of understanding of a situation kejriwal is exhibiting. its ok that you have to leverage all situations for political gains but not like a duh.

                        So what Kejriwal is implying that we should swallow our pride and let stan do what it did during Congress rule. I can't belive this traitor.

                          Yes. Farmers and exservicemen are committing suicide. They are not like AAM AADMI who can be left hanging during JAADU rallies.

                            Kujliwal forgot that he was the first d..g to bark on the surgical strike that it never took place and demanded a proof on the action took by our braved jawans. He was the first anti national element who started demoralizing our jawans and sided with Porkistan for demanding the proof. Probably, it is Porkistan who is funding his Punjab Elections being the only reason he is behaving with an anti national atude. Public of Delhi should call for a refendarum to throw this good for nothing cheap minister out
