Manohar Parrikar takes on AAP for R-Day comment
Panaji, Jan 26 : Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar Sunday launched a scathing attack on the AAP, saying those who sought to lower the prestige of the country's Republic Day should be "driven out" by the society.
Parrikar, who was addressing an inaugural function of a school here, said: "People who are thinking of degrading India's Republic Day should be driven out by civil society. It is a dangerous trend."
Taking on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Parrikar said that as the custodian of the Indian constitution, the chief minister had no business to violate prohibitory orders during his recent protest in the national capital.
Also questioning the AAP's use of slogan 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', Parrikar said it applies to the whole of India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, and referred to AAP member Prashant Bhushan's recent comments on Kashmir where he advocated plebiscite to solve the nagging issue.
The AAP has claimed that Bhushan's comments were misinterpreted.
