Congress MP Sajjan Singh Verma has served a privilege notice against Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal for his alleged remarks against Members of Parliaments (MPs) during a recent concluded election rally.
In his notice Verma has asked Kejriwal to submit his reply before the Lok Sabha Secretary on receiving the notice.
Verma, a Congress MP from Madhya Pradesh's Dewas has slapped notice to Kejriwal for his alleged insulting remarks for MPs. Verma has alleged that Arvind has insulted the MPs by calling them 'rapists, murderers and looters' during an election campaign rally last month in Uttar Pradesh.
Kejriwal on February 25 while addressing to public in an election rally at Ghaziabad, had said "In this Parliament, 163 members have cases of heinous offences against them. In this Parliament, rapists are sitting, murderers and looters are sitting. How can you expect Jan Lokpal Bill to be passed by Parliament? How can you expect that you can get reprieve from poverty and corruption."
This is the second time Kejriwal has been served a privilege notice in the past seven months. Earlier in September last year, Kejriwal was served a notice for his alleged same "derogatory" remarks against Parliamentarians during Hazare's agitation in Ramlila Maidan in August.
On the other hand, Kejriwal has twitted on microblogging website Twitter, "Raja indulges in corruption. When I say he is corrupt, they say I insulted Parl. Can u trust country in the hands of such people, even if they are accused? I am scared, I won't have the courage to do that."
