There have been demands, especially on the social media, asking for Kejriwal’s views on secularism and on Modi’s communal agenda. The AAP chief has stayed away from this issue as long as he could. Yesterday he finally spoke on the issue. If not on Modi, speaking generally about communalism, he called it “worse than corruption.” Speaking at the India Islamic Center where several muslims were present, he said that he would try to field as many muslim candidates as possible to represent the community fairly.
Kejriwal also spoke about using IPC act 341 to compensate wrongful detainees also to demand compensation for riot victims.
While just one day ago, Modi displayed his usual Hindutva agenda while talking about Bangladeshi immigrants and their religion at Arunachal Pradesh, Kejriwal is yet to really warm up to talking on religion and communal politics.
