AAP to hold silent protests to condemn BJP MP's 'terrorist' remark against Kejriwal

New Delhi [India], Jan 31 (ANI): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will be holding a silent protests on Friday in all the 70 Assembly constituencies in the national capital to condemn BJP lawmaker Parvesh Verma's "terrorist" remark against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

On Wednesday, AAP had filed a complaint with the Chief Electoral Officer of Delhi against Verma, demanding registration of an FIR against him over his statement.

Speaking to ANI with reference to the statement in which he called Kejriwal "Natawarlal" and a "terrorist", Verma had said, "I called him Natwarlal because he misguides people. He has made allegations against leaders in the past and had to apologise for the same. So, he has a habit of telling lies.""And I called him a Naxal, not a terrorist. I called him so because he is misguiding people and those who are sitting at Shaheen Bagh. He says he is supporting those who are at Shaheen Bagh. So the Delhi Chief Minister is working in a similar way as that of the Naxals," the BJP MP had said."Terrorists also work like this, they misguide people. If you see those who are damaging public property in Delhi they are no less than terrorists," he had added.

Responding to Verma's remark on Thursday, Kejriwal in an emotional address, said the people of Delhi will decide in the elections if he is a terrorist.

The Assembly elections in Delhi will be held in a single phase on February 8 and the results will be announced on February 11 after counting of votes. (ANI)
