Book Khadse under sedition, not Hardik Patel: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday demanded former Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse to be booked under sedition for his alleged links with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

He also reiterated that sedition charges against jailed Patidar community leader Hardik Patel be dropped.

“Gujarat govt shud withdraw sedition charges against Hardik Patel. He is not guilty of sedition. Khadse is. Book khadse under sedition,” he tweeted on Sunday morning.

On Saturday, Kejriwal termed Khadse a “traitor” for his links with the gangster.

Eknath Khadse, the most senior minister in the Maharasthra government, had to resign on Saturday from for his alleged involvement in the illicit land deals and his cellphone conversations with Dawood Ibrahim.
