Kejriwal gets 'blood threat' from Khurshid

New Delhi: After huge uproar, Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid backtracked on Wednesday saying "My statement (against Arvind Kejriwal) was taken out of context."


"Mr Salman Khurshid has threatened me. This is not right for the Law Minister to use such language (Jo bhasha unhone istemaal ki hai, wo bhasha iss desh ke kanoon mantri ko shobha nahin deti)," tweeted Kejriwal.
 
"Rather than threatening like this, it would be better that Congress sensed the anger of people and took some concrete steps against corruption," he wrote on Twitter.
 
"Killing me won't help. The whole nation is awake. Kill one Arvind and 100 more will take birth (Kyonki poora desh jaag gaya hai. Ek arvind marega to 100 arvind khade honge)."


Khurshid had launched a scathing attack on anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday saying if he comes to his constituency Farrukhabad , he won't go back.
 
"We have given our answers, now Kejriwal must stop raising questions," he said.
 
Meanwhile, IAC slammed Khurshid saying "We will go to  Farrukhabad, Khurshid is free to do what he wants."

IAC volunteer Kumart Vishwas has said, "Arvind has said that we are not going to give up this fight, this will not deter us," adding that an apology by the minister would not do as he should apologise and also step down.
 
BJP leader Mahesh Jethmalani also hit out at the Union Law Minister over the issue, saying, "The language used is most unfortunate, especially coming from a well educated minister." He said that the statement of the Law Minister would lead to an act of criminality.

The minister also threatened bloodshed and violence against anti-corruption activists who exposed him. He said, "I worked with pen so far, it's the time for blood now."
 
According to TV reports, Salman has said if Arvind Kejriwal comes to his constituency, he won't go back.
 
India Against Corruption (IAC) leader Arvind Kejriwal announced he would be taking the fight against Khurshid to his constituency, Farrukhabad, in UP.
 
Activists of IAC said they will now head to Farrukhabad – represented in the Lok Sabha by Khurshid – and launch a protest against him from November 1.
