New Delhi: BJP MP Mahesh Girri on Sunday sat on protest outside the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after the AAP leader did not take up his challenge of "open debate" over his allegations concerning murder of NDMC official M.M. Khan.
After Kejriwal had written to Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, accusing him of trying to shield Girri and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in the murder case,
Girri had dared Kejriwal to a public debate over the allegations levelled against him.
He had invited Kejriwal to the Constitution Club on Sunday afternoon for the debate and had asked him to produce evidence. Girri had said that he would quit politics if Kejriwal proved the allegations and the Aam Aadmi Party leader should resign if he was not able to do so.
Addressing a gathering at the Constitution Club, Girri said that he was also taking legal opinion and will also move court over Kejriwal's allegations.
"But before that I want to go to the people's court. Either he should prove the allegations or he should resign. He should accept that he has made a mistake," said the BJP MP from East Delhi.
He accused Kejriwal of making baseless allegations. Girri said if police had any doubt, he was prepared for questioning.
