Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday fired a fresh salvo at the BJP, terming it as the “most anti-national of all” and alleged that it was shielding those who raised anti-India slogans on the JNU campus.

“BJP is most anti-national of all. Why is it shielding those who raised anti-national slogans?” Kejriwal tweeted this morning.

The latest attack on BJP by Kejriwal comes following the findings of a report by a JNU panel that the provocative slogans at the controversial February 9 event on JNU campus were raised by a group of outsiders.

Earlier, after being named in an FIR under charges of sedition registered against him by Hyderabad Police on February 29, Kejriwal had said that he is a “bigger patriot” than Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that the BJP does not want to upset PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti by arresting the “real traitors” in the JNU case.

He had also claimed that those who raised “anti-India slogans” on the university campus were from Kashmir.

Along with several leaders, including Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Kejriwal was booked on sedition charges by Hyderabad Police acting on an order of a court based on a complaint filed by lawyer Janardhan Goud. — PTI
