Arvind Kejriwal is a blackmailer, 3rd rate man: Khurshid

Arvind Kejriwal and Salman Khurshid
New Delhi, Oct 14: Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid seems to have lost his patience after facing continuous criticism and allegations by Arvind Kejriwal. Without concealing his rage against the social activist-turned-politician, Khurshid on Sunday, Oct 14 called Kejriwal a "blackmailer" and members of India Against Corruption (IAC) "third rate people".

Khurshid returned to Delhi on Sunday when IAC members showed protest at the IGI airport against the law minister and later they were detained outside Khurshid's residence. The minister's wife, Louise Khurshid earlier on Saturday informed that her husband would clarify all doubts regarding the alleged corruption charges against their NGO - Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust on his return.

Before boarding his return flight to India, Khurshid in London was quoted as saying, "I am here to be honoured by the Oxford University. I am overwhelmed by the affection and honour I got in Oxford over the past two days, while in my own country, third-rate people are doing third-rate things," and expressing his disappointment with Kejriwal and Co, he added, "This is all being done because they want to launch their own party. And they believe they will take over the country... My God... they will not be able to take the country. We will fight tooth and nail. Whatever it takes, we will fight. We will not give in to these blackmailers and rabble rousers..."

Khurshid also demanded resignation from both Kejriwal and TV Today Chairman and MD Aroon Purie. The former Team Anna members hurled all allegations against the NGO following a sting operation by Aaj Tak, the Hindi sister channel of TV Today.

Khurshid and his wife have been accused of accumulating funds which were meant for physically-challanged people of his trust in Uttar Praesh. The Khurshid couple have overruled all allegations and sued Aaj Tak. They also have threatened to take legal action against Kejriwal.

Defending himself, the law minister stated, "I have frankly nothing to hide. We have all the facts.. I know personally many of the officials that are being quoted... They say that no camps were held. There are pictures as proof and tomorrow, I will show those pictures. I'd like to see what they have to say about that. Are these pictures doctored? Are they imaginary? So I'd like to see what they have to say about that."
