Modi follows people who give death threats to Kejriwal: AAP
NEW DELHI: AAP leader Ashutosh on Thursday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi followed on social media those who have given death threats to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders.
"When Kejriwal claimed (on Wednesday) that Modi was planning to kill him, it was not a baseless allegation. A Twitter handle that goes by the name 'Nikunj Sahu' had abused Kejriwal and also given death threats to him," the Aam Aadmi Party leader alleged.
He said Sahu worked in the Information Technology cell of the Bharatiya Janata Party and Modi was following him till 3 p.m. on Thursday.
"He is openly asking for Kejriwal and AAP MLAs to be shot dead. I don't understand what is the need for our Prime Minister to follow such people? What is forcing him?" Ashutosh asked.
He said BJP MP Giriraj Singh urged Twitter to reactivate Sahu's account when it was blocked for using abusive language.
"When users complained about the language (used), Sahu's account was blocked by Twitter. However, union minister and BJP MP Giriraj Singh had appealed to Twitter and the account was reactivated," the AAP leader told reporters here.
Ashutosh demanded to know why no police action was taken against people who openly threatened Kejriwal.
"While our MLAs are arrested after minor complaints, no action is taken against people like Sahu who are openly threatening Kejriwal with death," he said.
