Congress today disapproved of Salman Khurshid's controversial remarks daring Arvind Kejriwal to protest in his constituency, as the activist saw it as a murder threat and accused the Law Minister of acting like a mafia don.
"Everyone should choose words carefully," Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said when asked to comment on Khurshid's controversial remarks against Kejriwal.
Khurshid had said, "Let them come and visit Farrukhabad. But let him also return from Farrukhabad." This was seen as a murder threat by the activist. Opposition parties had also protested against the remarks.
Kejriwal and his aides had yesterday slammed Khurshid for the comments with lawyer Prashant Bhushan saying the country's Law Minister should not be using such a language against his own people. Bhushan had also wondered as to why the country should have such a Law Minister.
"Salman Khurshid has threatened me. The country's Law Minister should not use such a language. My life is not in the hands of Khurshid. My life is in the hands of God. We will go to Farrukhabad and we will return from there as well," Kejriwal had said.
Congress had yesterday downplayed Khurshid's remarks with party spokesman Rashid Alvi saying that he was not aware of the details of what Khurshid had said.
