NEW DELHI -- Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today filed a fresh salvo at BJP, terming it as the "most anti-national of all" and alleged that it was shielding those who raised anti-India slogans on the JNU campus.

"BJP is most anti-national of all. Why is it shielding those who raised anti-national slogans?" Kejriwal tweeted this morning.

The latest attack on BJP by Kejriwal comes following the finding of a report by a JNU panel that the provocative slogans at the controversial 9 February event on JNU campus were raised by a group of outsiders.

Earlier, after being named in an FIR under charges of sedition registered against him by Hyderabad police on 29 February, Kejriwal had said that he is a "bigger patriot" than Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that BJP does not want to upset PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti by arresting the "real traitors" in the JNU case.

He had also claimed that those who raised "anti-India slogans" at the varsity campus were from Kashmir.

Along with several leaders including Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, Kejriwal was booked on sedition charges by Hyderabad police acting on an order of a court based on complaint filed by lawyer Janardhan Goud.
