Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, Thursday shied away from answering the question on his response to the abrogation of article-370 in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian Express reported.
India did away with special status of Jammu and Kashmir in 2019 and bifurcated it into two Union Territories, Ladakh and J-K. Kejriwal had welcomed the move back then.
Mahinder Singh Bhainibagha, another farmer from Bharatiya Kisan Union-Dakaunda said, “We protested outside the resort and raised slogans against their campaign as we are fed up with all the political parties. Later, the AAP workers invited a few of us inside the venue saying that they can arrange a meeting with Kejriwal. But when we asked him [Arvind Kejriwal] questions, he evaded answering them saying what we asked were political. We have the right to question a politician before making up our minds whether to vote for a particular party or not. We asked for the AAP’s stand on section 370 abolished in Jammu, and those on issues of more powers to the state government and he felt irritated.”
On Friday, Kejriwal is scheduled to interact with traders and industrialists in Bathinda where farmers under the banner of SKM will again question him, Chauhan said.
