'Delhi Chalo': Kejriwal doubts Punjab CM's intention, slams him for his low-level politics

Addressing a press conference in the national capital on December 02, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal spoke on farmers' protest. Kejriwal said, "Punjab Chief Minister has made allegations against me that I have passed the black laws in Delhi. How can he do such low-level politics in this fragile situation? It is not up to state government to implement it. Had it been so why would farmers of country hold talks with Centre?" "The reason behind Captain sahab's allegation is that we did not allow the nine stadiums in Delhi to be converted into jails. Centre had plans to put the farmers in these stadiums. They are upset with me as I didn't give permission for making them jails," CM Kejriwal added. "So, is it the pressure of these people that you are putting allegations against me? Are you doing it for friendship with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or are you under pressure as Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed case against your family?

Kunal Kamra faces contempt charge for tweets on Supreme Court over Arnab’s bail

Comedian Kunal Kamra faces contempt proceedings for tweets against the Supreme Court. The Attorney General KK Venugopal on Thursday gave nod for criminal contempt proceedings against the comedian. KK Venugopal said the tweets ‘crossed the line between humour and contempt of court’. “I have gone through each one of the tweets which you have annexed for consent to proceed by way of criminal contempt against Kunal Kamra. The tweets which I am extracting below are not only in bad taste but clearly cross the line between humour and contempt of the court”, Venugopal said in his letter. “I therefore grant consent to proceed by way of initiating contempt proceedings against Kunal Kamra”. “The other tweets also are highly objectionable and it would perhaps be for the court to decide the question as to whether these tweets also would constitute criminal contempt of the Supreme Court of India,” Venugopal said.
