New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that “ascribing motives” to people who have expressed a sense of insecurity in the country today would be incorrect and that it is the government’s responsibility to ensure justice for all.
Kejriwal said that the debate over the “sense of justice” was India’s present “faultine” and referred to a sense of insecurity being felt by “a section of minorities”.
“If somebody is feeling insecure, then it would be incorrect for others to attach any sort of intention to that and say that the person is lying,” Kejriwal said today at a book launch here.
“The sense of insecurity that a section of minorities is sensing, that is not being felt by you or me. But if they are sensing something, then we should also and it becomes our responsibility to try and sense that feeling,” said the AAP leader.
Kejriwal, who has hailed actor Aamir Khan over his remarks on intolerance, said it is the responsibility of the administration and the government to ensure security for and provide justice to the people.
“When there is no justice, many other things also end,” he said.
Asked whether India was drifting towards a presidential style of politics, Kejriwal, who led his party to a massive victory in the Delhi Assembly polls earlier this year, said that while such a perception develops sometimes, “in normal circumstances, elections are fought between parties”.
