A local court here has issued notice to Union Minister Salman Khurshid for allegedly making controversial remarks against Aam Aadmi Party. Additional Sessions Judge Harvindar Singh issued the notice yesterday on a review petition filed by AAP member, advocate Poonam Chand Bhandari, directing the External Affairs Minister to appear before the court, or through his counsel, on March 5.
Bhandari, who is AAP’s state Lokpal, said in his complaint that Khurshid last month called the Aam Admi Party as foul smelling, “anarchist” with “jurassic” ideas out to destroy the system. Bhandari had filed defamation complaint against Khurshid in a lower court which was rejected on February 10, following which he moved the review petition in the sessions court and the notice was issued on Saturday.
In his scathing attack on AAP, Khurshid said, “They are Jurassic. They smell of anarchy. They just demean everything that has been time-tested. They ridicule anything. They question and demean anything… AAP is a real threat to our system. They are anarchist either by choice or by ignorance,” Khurshid had told NDTV.
