Comments on MPs: Court hearing against Kejriwal
New Delhi: A Delhi court will on Tuesday hear a criminal case against noted RTI activist and key Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal for making derogatory comments on MPs.
Kejriwal had triggered a political storm by saying that Parliament was filled with murderers, rapists and dacoits, while addressing a rally in February this year.
The social activist was also served with a Breach of Privilege notice for his derogatory comments on MPs where he compared them to rapists, murderers and looters.
Kejriwal had alleged that 162 MPs, including 14 ministers, were corrupt and rapists.
Kejriwal has so far remained defiant to his comment saying, "We don`t apologise about what we have said about the parliamentarians. They have failed to answer questions raised by common people."
However, Kejriwal said that he respected Parliament, but he was not sorry for what he had said.
Furthermore, Kejriwal argued that it was tainted ministers and parliamentarians with dubious records who had insulted Parliament and not him.
"Parliamentarians should introspect. If people are losing faith in Parliament, then it is a serious problem of credibility," he added.
