Sisodia flays Amit Shah for attacking Kejriwal
NEW DELHI: AAP leader Manish Sisodia on Friday denounced BJP President Amit Shah for criticizing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the army’s surgical strikes.
“So now Amit Shah will issue certificates of patriotism?” the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister asked in a tweet.
Saying Amit Shah was not even qualified to take Kejriwal’s name, Sisodia described the BJP President as a “black spot” on issues of political probity.
Sisodia went on: “The army is ours. It belongs to the people. The soldiers belong to the people. Who has made Amit Shah a spokesperson for the army?”
Earlier in the day, the BJP leader accused Kejriwal of “doubting” the surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) and “casting aspersions on the bravery of our armed forces”.
Both Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party have repeatedly denied the charge.
Indian commandos raided terrorist launch pads across the LoC in Pakistani territory on the night of September 28-29, killing an unspecified number of terrorists. Pakistan denies this happened.
Sisodia also targeted the media.
“Did anyone from the media at the press conference ask Amit Shah about the Bansal suicide?”
In his suicide note, senior bureaucrat B.K. Bansal named CBI officer Sanjeev Gautam of bragging that he was “Amit Shah’s man”.
Bansal alleged in his suicide note that CBI officers tortured his wife and daughter on Gautam’s orders, first driving the two women to kill themselves and then Bansal and his son to also commit suicide.
