In a dramatic video message posted on YouTube yesterday, the chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, made serious allegations against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), especially against two of its members, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party president, Amit Shah. Speaking to the “aam admi” (common people), who give his Aam Admi Party (AAP) its name, Kejriwal claimed he is kept awake at night by the regime of terror unleashed by the government. The Centre has arrested as many as 10 MLAs from AAP in the last few days, suspended one, and 21 are being examined on various charges of corruption. The situation is so dire, Kerjiwal said, and the PM is so frustrated, that he fears for his own life.
Kejriwal, who had earlier called Modi a “psychopath and coward”, said he’s worried for the future of India and wondered if the country was in “safe hands”. He warned his party workers that the “daman chakra” or cycle of oppression is going to get worse in the coming days and urged them to consider if they are ready to make the “ultimate sacrifice”.
