New Delhi, India – Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s defiant statement that he would “resign with his resignation on the tip of his shoe” has sparked a debate in India.
Kejriwal made the statement on Friday, November 17, at a political rally in Delhi. He was responding to allegations by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that he was involved in corruption.
“I am not afraid of anyone,” Kejriwal said. “I will resign with my resignation on the tip of my shoe if anyone can prove that I am corrupt.”
Kejriwal’s statement has been met with mixed reactions. Some people have praised him for his courage and determination, while others have criticized him for being provocative.
The BJP has dismissed Kejriwal’s statement as a “gimmick”. The party has said that it is ready to provide evidence of Kejriwal’s corruption if he is willing to face a fair investigation.
Kejriwal has not yet responded to the BJP’s challenge. However, he has said that he is confident that he will be cleared of all charges.
The debate over Kejriwal’s statement is likely to continue for some time. It is a reminder of the deep political divisions in India.
