Interview (2020)[edit]

  • [What do you have to say about the man who fired at Shaheen Bagh and has turned out to be an AAP worker, according to the police?] Delhi Police is being used as a political tool. As I told you, BJP has nothing to counter our work with. When nothing worked, they hurled abuses like terrorist, thug and anti-national at me. Delhi Police is their last resort. Suddenly, before elections they have come up with some photos claiming that he is an AAP member. His family members have denied any links with AAP. The country is watching how Amit Shah is coming up with conspiracies at the last moment. The person must be punished, and if he turns out to be an AAP worker, give him double the punishment.

  • [Do you think EC has done enough to check hate speech in the elections?] I think they could have done much more. They could have stopped whatever is going on. They did take some steps but after the bans were lifted, they began all over again…lost any fear.

  • [AAP’s manifesto has promised deshbhakti curriculum. What was the need for it?] Gandhiji had said a student who comes out of school or college should have three qualities — he should be a good human being, be capable of earning for his family and should be a hardcore nationalist. We started the happiness curriculum for making them good human beings, entrepreneurship for pet bharne ke liye (earning a meal) and deshbhakti for making them hardcore nationalists.

  • [Political observers feel you are taking a soft nationalist stand.] We are not soft nationalists, we are hardcore nationalists. We have come out of the Anna movement. Under the Anna movement, we put the Indian flag in the hands of every child and it became a matter of pride. We are kattar rashtrabhakt (hardcore patriots).
