Just a day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders of "promoting" The Kashmir Files movie and demanding that it should be put on YouTube to make it free, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma lashed out at him saying that CM Kejriwal should stop "constant mocking of Kashmiri Pandits".

He also said that the sufferings of Kashmiri Pandits "are a result of such condescending attitude and appeasement politics of secularists".

He also accused Kejriwal of using the Delhi assembly "to rub salt in wound of Hindus".

"If you don't want to make #KashmirFiles tax-free, don't. But stop this constant mocking of Kashmiri Pandits. Their sufferings are a result of such condescending attitude & appeasement politics of secularists. It doesn't behove a CM to use the Assembly to rub salt in wound of Hindus," Sarma said.
