New Delhi, Mar 27: Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting and Sports and Youth Affairs,  Anurag Singh Thakur, who was on a visit to Jammu and Kashmir today while citing the example of RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav highlighted a parallel in the case of Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal.

Thakur pointed out that during Lalu Yadav's involvement in the fodder scam, Rabri Devi used to speak on his behalf, eventually assuming his position, the same is happening in Kejriwal’s case. Kejriwal, once an advocate for morality and anti-corruption efforts, finds himself embroiled in corruption allegations today, with his party, the Aam Aadmi Party, deeply entangled. Despite being in jail, Kejriwal's ambition for the CM position remains steadfast, with his corruption allegations breaking records. Furthermore,  Thakur criticized CM Mamata Banerjee, stating that despite being a woman herself, she has failed to safeguard women in her state and instead she is offering protection to corrupt individuals and rapists.

Anurag Thakur further added, "Arvind Kejriwal used to say that I am against corruption and will not enter politics. However, he now finds himself and his Aam Aadmi Party entangled in the web of corruption. This is the same individual who once staged protests against the Congress. Today, Kejriwal and his party have plummeted into the depths of corruption, with their Deputy Chief Minister, Education Minister, Health Minister, MP, Councilor and now CM Kejriwal, the Kingpin of liquor scam himself behind the bars. His reign of anarchy and corruption has led him to this fate.”

Targeting the Congress, Anurag Thakur said, "Today, the Congress must introspect, have they sold their conscience too? Arvind Kejriwal earlier used to demand the arrest of Sonia Gandhi, but all the corrupt forces are in cahoots today. The question is what prompted this drastic change? Why is Congress aligning today with Kejriwal’s corruption? Where are the Congress leaders who, until recently, advocated for legal action in the liquor scam? Today, they are rallying in support of someone who has shattered all corruption records. Does Congress perceive Arvind Kejriwal as innocent?”.
