BJP leader files complaint seeking Mani Shankar Aiyar's arrest

February 14, 2018 15:20 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Supreme Court lawyer Ajay Aggarwal on Wednesday filed a complaint against suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar seeking the latter’s arrest over his remarks on Pakistan.

Aiyar, who was suspended by the Congress late last year after his ‘neech’ slur against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, again stirred a row, saying: “I receive much more hatred in India than the love I receive in Pakistan. I am really happy to be here.”

 

The Congress leader on the same day said he believed in the Pakistani people as they clapped for him because he spoke of peace. “Thousands of people, whom I don’t even know, hug me and welcome me. Men, women and children clap for me. I get more hatred in India than the amount of love I am getting in Pakistan.”

“I don’t believe the governments will change anything, but I believe in you people,” he added.

Aiyar’s comments came days after Pakistan-based terrorists on February 10 killed seven persons in an attack at the Sunjuwan army base camp in Jammu.
