NEW DELHI: Stepping up attack on the central government over the JNU row, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said opposing BJP and RSS is the "biggest" crime under the present dispensation and accused it failing to act against its sympathisers who indulge in criminal activities.

SC Declines to Hear Kanhaiya's Bail Plea

Kumar's Medical Reports Shows he was Injured in Attack 

"Centre's new IPC- it's not a crime to murder, rape or beat anyone if u r from BJP. Being opposed to BJP n RSS is biggest crime now (sic)," Kejriwal tweeted. In his another tweet, the Delhi Chief Minister said,

"Centre's new IPC- rape, murder or beat anyone. When questioned, just say that victim was shouting anti-India slogans, u will be let off."

Though the Chief Minister did not name anyone, he was apparently referring to Centre's alleged inaction against BJP legislator OP Sharma and the lawyers who were caught on-camera beating people outside Patiala House Court Complex where hearing of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar took place on Monday.

Sharma was arrested yesterday in connection with the incident, but was given bail later in the day. After coming out of the police station, Sharma had told  reporters, "If someone has to pay such a price for stopping a person who raised pro-Pakistan slogans, then I have got nothing to say."

Besides the Left Front and Congress, the AAP too has been targeting Centre over the JNU episode, especially after Kanhaiya's arrest on sedition charges.
