Kejriwal comes to Yogendra Yadav’s defence, dubs his protest a ‘fundamental right’

New Delhi, Aug. 11 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday condemned the treatment meted out to former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav by the city Police saying it is the latter’s fundamental right to protest peacefully.

“I strongly condemn the treatment meted out to Yogendraji by Delhi police. They were protesting peacefully. It is their fundamental right,” Kejriwal tweeted.
