Salman Khurshid, Union Law Minister, lost his cool and threatened Arvind Kejriwal, an India Against Corruption activist, of dire consequences, if he sticks to his programme of agitation against him at Farrukhabad itself with effect from coming 1st November. Farrukhabad is a city which the Minister belongs to. The Law Minister, as he himself said, is supposed to use his pen for his work, but he wouldn’t hesitate to use even blood instead. He also challenged Kejriwal to visit Farrukhabad and see that he wouldn’t return from there intact. What does it mean? In a plain language, the words so used by him are clearly indicative of a death threat to Kejriwal, which even a layman can understand. Doesn’t it indicate that he may hire some goons or sharp shooters to do away with Kejriwal, or he may even provoke and instigate his crowd of supporters to do the job giving it a name as if it was something like a revolt as from the side of the people in general locally. His stutters are blasting as from his inner self as he feels badly irritated and provoked as a result of several allegations of the nature of a corruption raised against him and his wife. Why feel shy of explaining his conduct publicly if he thinks that he himself and his wife are fully above board instead of using crude threats out of frustration? What Arvind Kejriwal says has since manifestly assumed the character of public voice from the nook and corner of the country, and it just can’t be erased by any pen, the one that uses ink or the one that works with blood. Salman Khurshid is the one who belongs to intelligentsia as a class, and it only mars his public image, which he otherwise has, if he resorts to using a flimsy sort of a language laden with unruly threats. Salman Khurshid, let us wish, is able to explain his conduct in a tangible measure to the people of the country with facts and figures to prove that the allegations as such so raised against him are only false ones.
