Addressing a gathering of Christian voters in Gurdaspur on Monday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal accused the SAD and its ally the BJP of indulging in communal politics.

Referring to the recent alleged desecration of the holy Quran, he said, “Since the AAP has emerged as a serious challenge to these communal forces like SAD and BJP, they are not keeping any stone unturned to defame AAP.”

His partyman and MLA Naresh Yadav from Delhi has been booked for allegedly orchestrating the incident.

“It is shameful that to defame AAP, they (SAD) did not even spare the holy Quran,” said Kejriwal at the function organised by the Punjab Christian United Front.

“Sometimes they (BJP) create an issue around Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Other time, they advise you on what to eat. They have been communalising everything,” said Kejriwal referring to the Centre led by the BJP.

Christian leaders raised issues concerned with the community in Punjab such as shortage of graveyards and no representation in the state assembly.

Kejriwal, however, did not made any promises and preferred to attack the Modi government and its “anti-minority” policies.
