‘Politics of hate’ being spread around country, says Kejriwal
Charging that “politics of hate” was being spread around the country, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal abhorred violence against people for what they choose to eat, saying that it is “not good” in an apparent attack on arch-rival Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
He also targeted the Centre over the issue of security of women in the national Capital and the recent of transfer of VAT commissioner in Delhi. “These days, politics of hate is being spread around. Be it beef or cow meat, killing somebody just because he eats meat is not good,” Kejriwal said without naming the BJP.
“I am a Hindu and I do worship cow. If someone consumes meat, I will try to convince him not to do so,” he said addressing farmers in Ghumanhera village in Matiala constituency in West Delhi. The CM said his government has distributed cheques to all farmers whose crop had been affected due to weather and had fixed the amount at Rs 50,000 per hectare.
