Kejriwal released, to continue protest against Khurshid

Arvind Kejriwal Arrest
New Delhi, Oct 13: India Against Corruption (IAC) activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal and his supporters were released from makeshift jail at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Bawana in the outskirts of New Delhi on Saturday, Oct 13.

We will march to Parliament Street after release, said Arvind Kejriwal. "I appeal to the people of this nation to reach Parliament Street to protest against the government of India that has ministers like Salman Khurshid. The people must protest until Khurshid resigns," he said.

The activists are on their way to protest in front of Parliament street.

Kejriwal said that the protests would continue till Union law minister Salman Khurshid resigns.

Kejriwal and about 400 activists, including differently-abled people, were detained on Friday near India Gate after they were stopped from marching towards Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's residence demanding the resignation of Khurshid alleging irregularities by an NGO headed by him.

"It's the demand of the people. Salman Khurshid should resign. He has forged signature of government officials," Arvind said, adding that the activists will not give up their fight. "The police has manhandled our activists without any reason. They are terrorising us... they are mistaken and we will not give up. These battles are fought on the streets. This is a political battle, its people's politics against corruption. They (Khurshid and his wife) should be arrested immediately," he added.
