New Delhi: The Lok Sabha Secretariat has issued notice to social activist Arvind Kejriwal for his purported remarks about parliamentarians during an election campign rally in February, a Team Anna member told IANS Saturday.
On March 12, Congress MP Sajjan Singh Verma had filed a complaint with the Lok Sabha Secretariat against Kejriwal for calling Lok Sabha members “rapists, murderers and looters”.
Verma, in his complaint, has condemned Kejriwal’s remarks and termed them as an “attack on democracy”.
The MP from Dewas in Madhya Pradesh has also demanded severe punishment for the RTI activist.
On Feb 25, Kejriwal 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 the Jan Lokpal Bill to be passed by Parliament? How can you expect that you can get reprieve from poverty and corruption?”
