Salman Khurshid dares Kejriwal to stage protest in Farrukhabad
MDT/PTI 17 October 2012

Khurshid said that he has been made the Law Minister and asked to work with the pen and he will work with the pen but also with blood

 
New Delhi: Law Minister Salman Khurshid, in a clear challenge to Arvind Kejriwal, has dared him to stage a protest in his constituency Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh and said "let him also return from Farrukhabad", reports PTI.
 
At a closed-door function in New Delhi last night whose footage was aired by some news channels, Khurshid said, "I have been made the Law Minister and asked to work with the pen. I will work with the pen but also with blood."
 
Apparently referring to Kejriwal's threat to stage a protest in his home constituency from 1st November, the senior Congress leader said, "Let them come to Farrukhabad and visit Farrukhabad. But let him also return from Farrukhabad." 
 
Khurshid, whose NGO Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust has been accused by Kejriwal of financial bunglings, said, "They say we will ask questions and you have to give the answers. We say you hear the answers and forget about asking questions." 
 
Kejriwal saw the comments as a death threat to him. "Mr Salman Khurshid has threatened me. The kind of language which he has used, it does not suit the stature of country's Law Minister," the activist said.
 
"Killing me won't help because the country has been awakened. If one Arvind is killed, there will be another 100 Arvind. Rather than threatening like this, it would be better that Congress sensed the anger of people and took some concrete steps against corruption," he said.
 
Khurshid was accompanied by his wife Louise and several other supporters during the programme.

I have lost all my respect for Salman Kurshid as I always felt that he was a reasonable man and would listen patiently.

By challenging Arvind Kejriwal to come to his "territory" he is indirectly instigating the goonagiri attitude, which is not expected from the Law Minister of standing.

He has fallen down from the pedestal where most of us had placed him before.

When yield point is crossed, irreversible plastic deformation starts. The "baagad bille" have started to crack. The jokers should be provoked into more displays of arrogance.
