Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has not wasted a single opportunity to hit out at the BJP, said ‘being opposed to BJP, RSS is biggest crime now.’ His comments came in the context of the raging Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) row in which a student, Kanhaiya Kumar, was arrested on sedition charges for raising alleged anti-national slogans. The BJP has maintained that its government at the Centre will not tolerate any insult to ‘Mother India’ and those raising anti-national slogans would be strictly dealt with.

“Centre’s new IPC- it’s not a crime to murder, rape or beat anyone if u r from BJP. Being opposed to BJP n RSS is biggest crime now,” Kejriwal wrote on Twitter.

“Centre’s new IPC- rape, murder or beat anyone. When questioned, just say that victim was shouting anti-India slogans, u will be let off,” he added.

The controversy surrounding Kanhaiya Kumar, who is the president of JNUSU, began after he allegedly led a protest at which anti-national slogans as well as those in favour of Afzal Guru, the terrorist convicted and hanged for the 2001 Parliament attack, were raised. Kanhaiya, who is currently in jail, has dismissed the charges against him. After his arrest, a majority of the JNU community as well as teachers and activists lambasted the government for curbing freedom of speech of students and silencing them.

The Delhi Chief Minister has also criticised the city police commissioner BS Bassi for ‘deteriorating’ law and order in the city. Bassi has been under severe criticism for his handling of an incident at the Patiala House Court where a group of lawyers attacked teachers and journalists when Kanhaiya was being produced for a hearing. On another day of hearing, Kanhaiya himself was beaten and kicked by the same set of lawyers.

Kejriwal, along with his ministerial colleagues, had met President Pranab Mukherjee to complain about the Delhi police and the worsening law and order situation in the city.

                    Are you living in a well? Did you not read every single verdict which said Mr. Modi did everything to prevent riots. He asked for extra cops from MP then a congi gov. who refused.

                            Read about 2001 bhuj earthquake. And how CM Modi recovered the state from its devastating after effects. That's the Guj model. The resilience and determination. You'll always be a net warrior.

                                  He denied taking 4Lakh USD from Ford foundation, later accepted and then denied again. First Post asked about $ 4Lakh donation from Ford Foundation then Arvind asked for proof. Later Kejriwal accepted, taking 4Lakh USD from the Ford Foundation in a Business Standard interview. Later again took U Turn and said he has not taken any foreign funding of 4Lakh US. Uncountable as always he took an oath upon his children that he will never give or take the support of congress, but later conveniently forgot any such oath.

                                    Nirbhaya issue - On one hand Kejriwal did protests in Delhi on camera asking for justice for Nirbhaya and strict punishment for rapists. But on the other, he gave Loksabha ticket from south Bangalore to Nina P. Nayak. Nina supported and easy sentence for the Nirbahya Killer and most brutal rapist Muhammad Afroz. It was Muhammad Afroz who double raped Nirbhaya, inserted Iron rot (wheel jack) in her body, took out her intestines. Because of brutal ault by Afroz, Nirbhaya died. Arvind Kejriwal gave justice to Nirbhaya by giving Loksabha ticket to saviour of her rapist and murderer.

                                      He sent letters to Anna saying that all money received during Anna movement spent during the movement and no money left. Later he accepted that 2 Crore rupees still left of the movement. He never disclosed the actual sum he got away with, which is estimated to be well above 100Crores made from s of crores of Anna cards

                                        Santosh Kohli Murder: Arvind Kejriwal did many protests against Murder of RTI activist Santosh Kohli. He claimed during the entire Delhi embly campaign that Mafia of Congress and BJP murdered her and she should get Justice. But when Kejriwal became CM he never demanded or recommended a high level judicial / CBI inquiry in this murder case. Arvind Kejriwal kept the Post Mortem report himself and never made it public and never gave to her family.

                                          Arvind Kejriwal said he has 370 page proof against Sheila Dixit and once his government comes to power, he will send her to jail within 2 days. However, when he came into power he suddenly lost all proof and started asking for proof from BJP.

                                            During the AAP’s attack on the BJP headquarters in March Arvind Kejriwal said his supporters did not attack on the BJP headquarters, but on camera everyone saw that AAP supporters started the riot and were pelting stones on BJP office, even his leader Ashutosh was caught on camera trying to jump over the wall in the BJP office.
