New Delhi: Slamming Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Union Minister Prakash Javadekar stated that Kejriwal should fight these cases with his personal money and not pubic money. He also asked that why should public pay for his own misdeeds; it’s his private case and should be fought with his personal money.

While talking to the media, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar went on to say: “Defamation cases are personal cases against Kejriwal, not against the Chief Minister of Delhi. Hence, Kejriwal should fight these cases with personal money, not public money.”

“Kejriwal is habitual of defaming people. It is his ‘karma’. Why should public pay for his ‘karma’?” Javadekar asked.

“Today he his paying the lawyer’s fee from public exchequer. Tomorrow if the court convicts him, will he pay all the liability from the public exchequer?” he asked.

“And there are seven defamation cases against him as far as I know. This may total up to (Rs.) 100 crore. Will he make the people of Delhi pay those 100 crore?” the BJP leader asked.

Calling this a “dacoity” on public money, Javadekar said Kejriwal’s action were “illegal and immoral” and would not be accepted.
