Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Maheish Girri, who has been on a hunger strike outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence demanding that he prove his allegations regarding NDMC official MM Khan's murder, today alleged that the AAP supremo was casting baseless allegations on others to get rid of corruption charges.
"Whenever their party comes into the circle of corruption, they try to distract people by putting baseless allegations on others. But this time, I will not let it go that easily," said Girri.
"Everybody is supporting the truth. And he (Kejriwal) has been fighting this fight of lies since forever," he said.
Girri added that Kejriwal trained his guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi to divert people's attention.
"My dignity is my biggest asset and if someone points a finger at it, I will not let it go that easily," he stated.
Earlier in the day, Kejriwal accused Prime Minister Modi of shielding the East Delhi MP and demanded the latter's arrest.
The BJP lawmaker from East Delhi has been on a hunger strike since yesterday with posters challenging Kejriwal for a debate.
Girri earlier in the day said that his hunger strike would continue.
"The hunger strike is going to continue. The Delhi Chief Minister has leveled baseless allegations of my involvement in NDMC official MM Khan's murder," he said.
"I will not even move from here till he comes out and I get justice," he added.
In a letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, Kejriwal had accused the former of trying to "save" Girri and NDMC vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in Khan's murder case.
Girri had asked Kejriwal for a public debate on his allegations. Khan was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on 16 May, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
