Anti-Padmaavat Protests: Arvind Kejriwal Says Such Incidents Will Drive Away Investors”

A Haryana Roadways bus was also set ablaze and another vandalised in Bhondsi area of Gurugram district by a group of around 50 men to protest against the release of "Padmaavat".

He said it was a matter of shame for the entire country that on the eve of Republic day, children are pelted with stones a few kilometres from the national capital.

He added: "Don't remain silent now, speak up".

The protesters were blocking the road and had burnt a state-run bus just seconds before they attacked the school bus.

The CM said people involved in Wednesday's incident should be given punishment "harsher than the punishment Lord Rama had given to Ravana". "We can not afford to remain silent anymore", Kejriwal said, while speaking at an event in Delhi ahead of Republic Day. "There are problems in the law and I appeal central government to change the master plan or bring ordinance, if needed, to stop sealing, we will extend full support". Today, they have started pelting our children with stones, have started intruding into our homes. "Which religion preaches violence against children?" he asked. "Please spare us", he said. Meanwhile, Kejriwal said that there should be no "political interference" in the functioning of constitutional institutions because it undermines their functioning. The Delhi Commission for Women along with police did a remarkable job by rescuing so many women in the city.

Though Raj Niwas did not return requests for comment, the Delhi Police said via tweets that they were following protocol.

Kejriwal further said, "Harassment of traders through sealing drives should be stopped".

"These days' traders are facing a lot of problems because of sealing drives".

Terming it an "insult", the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said on Wednesday that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was made to alight his vehicle and walk into Raj Niwas as he entered Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal's residence for a reception. He urged Sisodia to ensure that the burden of textbooks on the students is reduced and the focus is on making them good individuals.
