Shiv Sena workers protest against Kejriwal in Varanasi

Varanasi: The Shiv Sena workers started a poster war in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency Varanasi on Wednesday during which they depicted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as Ravana’s son Meghnath and called him a Pakistani agent for questioning the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army.

“We have been extremely troubled by the Delhi Chief Minister’s remark questioning our Army… If someone enters our house and attacks, we will retaliate. Kejriwal is posing as a Pakistani agent,” Ajay Chaubey, one of the protestors, said.

“We have portrayed Modi ji as Ram and Nawaz Sharif as Ravana… We need surgical strikes once more to give Pakistan a befitting reply,” he added.

The protestors also warned Kejriwal of dire consequences if he ever visits Varanasi and said that he would have to pay a heavy price for doubting the country’s intentions.

During their protest, the Shiv Sena workers also raised slogans against Pakistan.

Arvind Kejriwal had earlier questioned the September 29 surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army across the Line of Control (LoC).

However, later he defended his remark and said that evidence of the surgical strikes should be released to counter Pakistan’s propaganda and its denial of the strikes.

“BJP, I m convinced that strikes took place. But intl media publishing Pak propaganda that no strike took place. Let’s expose Pak propaganda,” Kejriwal tweeted in response to the criticism by the BJP.
