Punjab Police Arrives At Kumar Vishwas’s Home Over His Explosive Remarks Against Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: Kumar Vishwas, a former leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, has been charged with multiple offenses after making inflammatory remarks about Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in an interview during the Punjab assembly elections earlier this year, according to media sources. Kumar Vishwas had stated, without identifying him, that Arvind Kejriwal aspires to be the Prime Minister of an independent Khalistan.

This morning, a police squad arrived at his home to serve him with a notice asking him to cooperate with the inquiry. Opposition parties have accused the Punjab administration of employing the police for political vendetta.

“The Punjab police arrived at my doorstep early morning. I am cautioning Bhagwant Mann, who I admitted into the party myself, that the person sitting in Delhi who you are letting play with the power given by the people of Punjab, will betray both you and Punjab one day. The country should remember my warning,” the former AAP leader said on Twitter along with some pictures of cops at his residence.

The case has triggered a war of words on Twitter, with both the BJP and Congress condemning the action and AAP leaders defending it.

BJP Punjab General secretary Subhash Sharma accused Arvind Kejriwal of using the Punjab police to settle personal scores. “The police landing first at Tajinder Bagga’s residence and now Kumar Vishwas shows that Bhagwant Mann has fully surrendered in front of Arvind Kejriwal,” he said in a Tweet.

Punjab Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira also made a similar accusation, questioning how AAP is different from other traditional parties if it ‘misuses’ the police.

“I strongly condemn this act of political vendetta against @DrKumarVishwas for making a statement against @ArvindKejriwal during elections! Whats the difference between @AamAadmiParty and traditional parties? I urge @BhagwantMann not to misuse Pb police to settle political scores!” he Tweeted.
