Malerkotla: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said some “anti-national” elements were trying to “destabilise” the country but they would never be successful in their nefarious designs.
Mr Kejriwal was addressing a gathering on the occasion of Roza Iftari at Malerkotla in Punjab.
“Some people are trying to malign me and my party in the name of religion. But I am anguished that they had to resort to sacrilege to malign me. In their endeavour to malign AAP, they have rather played with the sentiments of minority community,” he said.
“They could have adopted other ways and means to malign me and my party, as they have been doing in the past by throwing ink at me or assaulting me, but they should not have resorted to desecrate the holy book,” he said.
AAP MLA Naresh Yadav has been summoned by Punjab Police in connection with the incident of sacrilege in Malerkotla in Punjab.
