BJP a party of greedy people, not Hindus, says Kejriwal

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Chief Minister Kejriwal on Monday hit out at the BJP, saying it claims to be a party of the Hindus, but it is actually a party of people greedy for power and money.

"The is not a party of the Hindus. It is a party of the people, who are greedy for power and money. Forget the Hindus, the will not spare even its own for power and money," Kejriwal said in a Facebook post on Monday.

On Sunday, speaking at Surat also, Kejriwal had made fun of the BJP's assertion that it is a pro-Hindu party.

"But weren't the Patidars Hindus? Weren't the Dalits Hindus? Then why did this government punish them?," he had said.

A day after, speaking in he again said: "Last year, the government in Gujarat ordered to open fire on Patel youth (who were protesting for reservation). Many of them died. Those boys were Hindus," Kejriwal said.

He also raised the issue of flogging of some Dalit youth by cow vigilantes near Gujarat's Una town on July 11.

"A few months back, the got Dalit boys beaten up in Una district. The whole nation saw that video on social media. Those Dalit boys were also Hindus," the Chief Minister said.

"If the is a party of the Hindus, then why did it get those Dalit boys beaten up," he questioned.
