New Delhi: Commenting on the protest by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kirti Azad on Monday said that he had great respect for Kejriwal but at the same time he should understand that he was now a protector of the constitution and not a protestor.

“I have great respect for Arvind Kejriwal who is a very learned man, and he should know the he is not an activist anymore, as he has to protect the constitution in India and work accordingly. He is a protector of the constitution now not a protestor,” said Azad.

“AAP leader Yogendra Yadav who also is a very learned man, should tell his party members the same and teach them to behave in the way they should,” he added.

Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders were stopped at Rail Bhavan by the Delhi Police while heading for a protest outside Union Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s office demanding action against Delhi Police today.

The party then started protesting in Rail Bhavan itself, demanding action against Delhi Police personnel for alleged dereliction of duty.

Party leader Sanjay Singh made it clear yesterday that AAP will stage the protest if no action is taken against the police officers.

AAP is demanding the suspension of the station house officers (SHO) of Sagarpur and Malviya Nagar police stations and two assistant commissioners of police.
