Kejriwal’s daughter hits at BJP for calling her father ‘terrorist’


Arvind Kejriwal’s daughter Harshita Kejriwal, aged 24 has commented that BJP leaders’ remarks were a “new low in politics”. She also listed the work done by the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi in the last five years.


The BJP lawmaker Parvesh Verma first used the term terrorist for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader during a campaign trail in January while talking about the anti-citizenship act protesters in Shaheen Bagh.


Then Union minister Prakash Javadekar said on Monday that Kejriwal had called himself an “anarchist” and there is not much of a “difference between an anarchist and a terrorist”.


Harshita took on the criticism levelled by the BJP and went about demolishing the argument.


She asked, “They say politics is dirty but it’s a new low. Is it terrorism if health facilities are made free and brought to people? Is it terrorism if children are made educated? Is it terrorism if electricity and water supply are improved?”


Harshita Kejriwal added that the outcome of the Delhi assembly polls on February 11 will provide a fitting answer to the critics.
