Attacking the Shiromani Akali Dal and Bharatiya Janta Party(SAD-BJP) led government in Punjab, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said he is not scared of the defamation case filed against him and if Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
“I am not frightened by the case filled by Majithia. He should keep these papers with him, but if he has courage then he will get me arrested within six month, otherwise after six months, I will get him arrested,”said Kejriwal, while addressing a mass gathering in Amritsar before appearing in the court.
“After six months (I will) reconstruct a new Punjab,” he said.
The AAP leader said he was not afraid of “false cases” and warned Majithia that “the people will take revenge from him in the coming elections”.
“The people of Punjab will take revenge for each and every case against them. In the coming elections, people will take revenge from Majithia,” he said.
Kejriwal called the Revenue Minister Bikramjit Majithia a “Drug Lord” in-spite of the fact that, the Delhi CM was in Amritsar, for the hearing of a defamation case on the same issue.
Kejriwal lived up to his reputation of taking on the mighty and powerful as he did during the Delhi assembly elections. Majithia is known as a muscle man and is related to Punjab’s most influential family – The Badal’s. He is Brother in law of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal.
Majithia had filed a case against Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khaitan in May for tarnishing his reputation and accused them of maligning his family name by levelling false, baseless and malicious allegations.
However, Kejriwal and his party colleague Sanjay Singh have been granted bail by the Punjab Court in connection with the defamation case on a personal bond of Rs. 40, 000.
The matter would be next heard on October 15.
