New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today tore into Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand, alleging the Centre will attempt to "destabilise" the Delhi and Himachal Pradesh governments.
He also attacked Modi for allowing the visit of the Pakistani JIT to probe the Pathankot terror attack and went on to suggest that the "overture" of the Prime Minister toward Pakistan was aimed at securing a "Noble Peace Prize".
The imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand amounted to "murder" of "Babasaheb Ambedkar's Constitution", Kejriwal said, adding he was aware of plans to destabilise the Delhi and Himachal Pradesh governments.
Decrying "horse-trading" in Uttarakhand, he dared BJP to "buy" even a single AAP MLA. "An IB officer told me that one big industrialist has been entrusted with buying AAP MLAs," Kejriwal alleged.
"BJP knows that it will not win a single election in the next two years so it has resorted to goondagardi. They will try it in Himachal Pradesh and Delhi next. In Delhi, they plan to suspend 21 MLAs first and then attempt to buy 23 more," Kejriwal alleged.
Speaking in the Delhi Assembly, Kerjriwal repeatedly questioned the visit of the Pakistani JIT to probe the Pathankot terror attack and alleged that Centre's decision may have been influenced by a "deal" struck between Modi and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
"Why is the Prime Minister allowing this? Some say that he wants the Nobel Peace Prize or wants to please the United States. The country wants to know the deal struck between Modi and Sharif during the Lahore stopover.
"The PM has embraced Pakistan that is behind the terror attacks on India that have taken countless lives. Ask the family members of Pathankot martrys how they are feeling about the government's move," Kejriwal said.
He also asked why CBI was not tasked with probing the attacks "instead of ISI" if it could conduct raids at the Delhi Secretariat.
"Indian agencies should have been given the opportunity to question Hafiz Saeed or Salauddin instead," he said.
