Amritsar: A large number of Akali Workers especially Youth leaders and workers today descended at the district courts complex here to express its solidarity with Punjab Revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia for taking AAP Convenor and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to task and renaming him as Accused Arvind Kejriwal (AAK).
More than 20,000 youth spontaneously gathered in and around the court complex here with many more being stranded in traffic jams in various parts of the city even as a State wide call given by AAP asking people to congregate here to support Kejriwal failed to elicit any response.
Mr Majithia, who found it even difficult to enter the court premises due to the mammoth youth gathering, registered his presence in the court of Additional chief judicial magistrate here and set the ball rolling to put Arvind Kejriwal in jail on criminal defamation charges.
Interacting with the media on the occasion, Mr Majithia said Kejriwal had admitted his guilt in the case by refusing to file an application for day to day hearing.” From today onwards the word accused has been prefixed to his name. This is a victory not only for me and my family but the entire Punjabi community”. I thank my Punjabi brethren for extended their overwhelming support to my cause which they have made their own”.
