NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him, on the occasion of International Women's Day, to "unfollow" those, who threaten and abuse women online.
"Happy women's day to all. On this day, I urge Hon'ble PM to unfollow all those who abuse n threaten women n take strong action against them(sic)," Kejriwal tweeted.
Last month, Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur was threatened with rape after she posted a message on social media following the Ramjas College ruckus that saw clashes between RSS-backed ABVP and Left-affiliated AISA.
The AAP had attacked Modi for "following" those on Twitter, who allegedly abused women. Some women leaders of the party had then asked the PM to "unfollow" them.
TMC Rajya Sabha MP Dereck O'Brien retweeted the Kejriwal's tweet.
"Made the same request last month in #Parliament Maybe he will heed a CMs request (sic)," O'Brien wrote retweeting the tweet.
