Denial of security to Kerala CM shocking: Kejriwal

New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday described as “shocking” the Madhya Pradesh government’s failure to provide security to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

“This is shocking. Complete breakdown of the Constitution,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader tweeted.

Kejriwal’s tweet followed Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Sitaram Yechury’s tweet that the Madhya Pradesh government on Saturday refused to provide “security to (Vijayan) from Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh goons”.

Yechury asked: “So not even a pretence of governance left under BJP now?”

Vijayan was on his way to attend a function on Saturday organised in Bhopal by some Kerala groups when RSS activists obstructed him. The police then told him to return to Kerala.

Both Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and the police chief later apologized to Vijayan.
