New Delhi, July 27

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being willing to go to great lengths — even have him killed— to destroy the party. 

In his address to his party men in a video posted on Twitter, Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener, said: “You have seen in the past few days the attempts that are being made to destroy the party. Ten MLAs of AAP have been arrested on various criminal charges. One has had an income tax raid conducted on him. There have been attempts to disqualify 21 MLAs on the ground that they hold offices of profit. A Parliamentarian, Bhagwant Mann, has been suspended from Lok Sabha.”

“The anti-corruption bureau lodges false criminal charges against AAP leaders almost every day… I want to know how the income tax department, the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Delhi Police all target the AAP.”

He claimed the events were orchestrated by Bharatiya Janata Party national president Amit Shah and Modi.

“BJP president Amit Shah is engineering them on Modi’s instructions… Modi is scared of us. He’s angry, He can’t think straight anymore.”

“I want to tell my fellow party men that times ahead will be tough. It will get dirtier. These people are willing to go to great lengths to destroy the party — even have us, have me, killed.”
