After terming ruling AAP’s 2015 ombudsman Bill “mahajokepal”, Accusing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of “betraying” people by diluting the Janlokpal Bill, Swaraj Abhiyan leader Prashant Bhushan today took to air waves to challenge his former colleague to an “open debate”.
Although there was no immediate response or reaction from AAP on the gauntlet thrown down by Bhushan, the ruling party has rubbished the Supreme Court lawyer’s allegations that he was speaking against the said Bill at the behest of BJP.
AAP is claiming that the Bill is identical to the the draft prepared during the Anna Hazare movement and the 2014 Bill that it had tried to introduce in the Delhi Assembly.
“Kejriwal should come and debate this in public. It will expose the fraud with the people of the country and the anti-corruption movement. If you have actually copied from Janlokpal Bill 2014 or Uttarakhand Bill, then what took you so long?,” Prashant Bhushan said.
Listen to the radio ad:
“It seems like the movement for the Jan Lokpal bill and the country have been betrayed. Hence, I invite Arvind Kejriwal for an open, public debate on this so that people can arrive at the conclusion as to who is honest and who is lying. Come, Arvind, let’s debate on this,” Bhushan is heard saying in the advertisement.
