Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Over the weekend, Arvind Kejriwal had told a Punjab-based television channel that like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, he too, would be assassinated by his personal security officers.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, caught in a controversy over his claim that his personal security officers could kill him, on Monday claimed it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who wanted him dead. Delhi being a Union Territory, the Delhi Police is under the control of the Union home ministry. For the just-concluded Lok Sabha election, Mr Kejriwal has made the demand for full statehood his key theme.
In a twitter exchange with senior BJP leader and Union Minister Vijay Goel on Monday, Mr Kejriwal, in a Hindi post, said, "Vijay ji, not my PSO but it is Modi ji who wants to get me killed".

The remark was a response to Mr Goel's Hindi tweet that said: "I'm sorry that by expressing suspicions about your own PSO, you have given a bad name to the Delhi Police. It would be better if you choose your PSO. Let me know if you need any help. Wish you a long life".

Over the weekend, Mr Kejriwal had told a Punjab-based television channel that like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, he too, would be assassinated by his personal security officers.

The comment had triggered furore, and the Delhi BJP wrote to the police asking that Mr Kejriwal's security cover be withdrawn. Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor, who sent the letter, also advised the Delhi Police to seek an apology from the Chief Minister.
