Shinde Calls Arvind Kejriwal a Mad Chief Minister
send via whatsapp

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today stoked a potential controversy when he called Arvind Kejriwal a "Yeda Mukhyamantri" (mad chief minister), while recalling his own days in the police force.

"When I was in Kherwadi police station in Mumbai's Bandra area, I did not get leave because there were Sena (led) riots. Similarly, yesterday (in Delhi), because of a 'yeda mukhyamantri' (mad chief minister) sitting there (on dharna), I had to cancel the leave of policemen," Shinde, who was at the receiving end of Kejriwal's repeated diatribe, said.

Shinde's remarks came while addressing a meeting at Hingoli in Marathwada region where he spoke about an instance in the 1970s, when as a policeman, he could not get leave after his marriage due to work pressure.

Kejriwal had called Shinde corrupt and inefficient and dared the Home Minister to evict him from the dharna venue near Rail Bhavan during his protest against the Delhi police.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader's 30-hour protest for suspension of five Delhi Police officials for dereliction of duty, which virtually transformed into a fight for control of the Delhi Police, was called off last night after a compromise formula was worked out by the Centre under which two police officers were sent on leave.

The unprecedented agitation by the Delhi Chief Minister had threatened to disrupt the Republic Day parade in the national capital.

Shinde is mad at Kejriwal because Kejriwal made him to offer face saving compromise which made Rahul Gandhi mad.  And because of that for him Kejriwal is mad.  Previous two sentence you are free to substitute word 'Yeda' for the word mad.

""The Aam Aadmi Party is encouraging street radicalism without possessing the courage to become Naxalites. Its tendencies [one cannot quite call it a manifesto, since no one has put it together into an intelligent, logical framework yet] are towards socialisation of the system and nationalisation to increase the power of the political class over both bureaucracy and private sector. It has become so holier-than-thou that when its minister is exposed by a judge then it is the judiciary that must be wrong. The party cannot be mistaken.'' M J Akbar

AAP should remember that before giving all the power to the people, remember, most people are basically selfish, mean, greedy, petty, ignorant and superstitious.

I fell dwon laughing. Shinde is the last person on earth to dispense certificates of good conduct or any certificate for that matter.

Shine ji, Adarsh building abhi bhi demolish nahi ki na? Aap ne free me permission di thi kay? Wah Wah Amazing. Aap ko to Gandhi peace prize milna chahiye.


Kejris recent behaviour post comming into power does not commend him to anyone.

Look at his body language. Sab badal gaya hai.

"Delhi ka CM kaun hai?" Are bhai aap ne hi to kaha that ki sari janata CM hai? Toh yeh tevar kyu?

He is very authoritarian. Dont agree with him? bas. You are desh drohi and counter view and counter point however well meaning will be ignored.

Binny is not very articulate (poor man) but maybe even he has a point of view !!!

Arvind Kejri and his gang as saviours of India= recepie for disaster
