New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said he believes in freedom of expression, and hence a protester should be allowed to protest.

Reacting to slogans against him at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday, instead of intervening, Kejriwal said the protester should be allowed to protest.

The man raised a slogan “Aarakshan virodhi Kejriwal”, when the Aam Aadmi Party leader was speaking at a protest march.

“Let him protest. We believe in freedom of expression. When did I say I am against reservation? I have always supported it,” said Kejriwal.

Kejriwal was addressing people at Jantar Mantar after a protest march condemning the “institutional killing” of 26-year-old Rohith Vemula, a research scholar at the University of Hyderabad.

Hundreds of students and faculty members of various universities took part in the march from Ambedkar Bhawan to Jantar Mantar.
