Kejriwal is a cunning ambitious fraud, no different from Modi: Markandey Katju

Former Press Council of India (PCI) chief Markandey Katju on Friday once again stirred a controversy by calling Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a 'cunning ambitious fraud with nothing in his head'.

The ex-Supreme Court judge targeted him in a Facebook post saying, "Kejriwal is a cunning ambitious fraud with nothing in his head, and no different from that fraud Modi. Many people are still under illusions about him, but the time will come when their eyes will be opened to the truth."

You may remember Katju had attacked Kejriwal earlier too saying that Kejriwal is 'Don Quixote surrounded by chamchas'.

He even related Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh to Sancho Panza, a fictional character in the novel Don Quixote.

"Happy birthday to that cunning fraud, who sold dreams to Delhiites, that Don Quixote surrounded by chamchas & Sancho Panzas like Ashutosh," Katju had tweeted in 2015.

Earlier, he had called him a "nothing" just like Prime Minister Narendra Modi or Congress leader Rahul Gandhi."I have carefully studied Kejriwal's speeches and writings, and have come to the conclusion that there is nothing in the man, just as there is nothing in Rahul Gandhi or Modi," Katju wrote in his blog, Satyam Bruyat.

Katju had also predicted that the Aam Aadmi Party leader will take lesser time than Modi to become unpopular. "It took only 9 months for Narendra Modi from being very popular in India in May 2014 to becoming extremely unpopular (as the Delhi Assembly elections have conclusively proved) in February 2015. I submit that it will take an even lesser time for Arvind Kejriwal from being very popular to becoming highly unpopular," Katju wrote.
