After censure, Kejriwal attacks EC, wants to become its brand ambassador
Cocking a snook at the Election Commission after it censured him for asking voters in Goa to accept bribe from other parties but vote for AAP, a defiant Arvind Kejriwal today demanded that the poll panel allow him to repeat his comments as those were aimed at checking graft. The Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convenor also suggested that he be made the EC’s “brand ambassador” for his efforts to check bribery in polls.
“By stopping me to say what I am saying, the Election Commission is not stopping corruption, but encouraging it. I hope you (the EC) will re-examine this.
