'PM always silent during crisis'

CHIEF Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday spoke on Manipur issue saying that Manipur is burning, there two communities are fighting with each other and women are being misbehaved. If the people of the country keep fighting with each other like this, then how will India become a Vishwaguru?

Speaking in the Delhi Assembly, Kejriwal said the prime minister "remains silent" whenever a crisis arrive before the nation. In his fiery speech Kejriwal alleged that the BJP MLAs have clearly stated that they don't have any relation with Manipur. Even PM Modi, Kejriwal said, has given the message that they don't have any relation with Manipur.

"The Prime Minister is like a father figure. He turned his back on the daughters of Manipur. You kept sitting in your room. The entire country is asking the reason for PM's silence. It is not the first time that he is silent.

Whenever there is a crisis situation over the past nine years, the prime minister has remained silent. Least you could have done is "issue an appeal for peace" Kejriwal alleged.
