Targetting the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) government in Uttar pradesh over the shooting of Apple employee Vivek Tiwari by a police constable in Lucknow, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asked why Vivek Tiwari was killed even though he was a Hindu when the BJP claims to be a protector of Hindus.
On September 30, after attending Akhil Bharatiya Aggarwal Samaj programme in Haryana’s Jind district, Kejriwal said, “Vivek Tiwari was a Hindu, even then he was shot dead. BJP says they are pro Hindu, then why was Vivek Tiwari killed in an encounter by the state police? If you say you are pro Hindu then provide justice to Hindus at least.”
“The real fact is they (BJP) are neither pro Hindu, nor pro Muslim. They are mere power mongers,” added Kejriwal.
