Centre upset with me, stadiums would've been used as jail: Kejriwal

Dec 02, 2020 22:41 IST

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday claimed that the BJP-ruled Centre was angry with him for not permitting stadiums to be used as temporary jails for farmers protesting against the farm laws. In a press briefing, Kejriwal said the Centre had the plan of putting the farmers into jails as soon as they reached Delhi, but his government refused to convert the nine stadiums into jails. He said the Centre is very upset with me for this. Last week, the AAP government had denied permission to the Delhi Police to convert the city's stadiums into temporary jails.
