Attacking the Modi government for “not following” the Supreme Court order for maintaining peace at Patiala House Court, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal yesterday said, “This was a message that the Centre was giving to the Supreme Court that do whatever you like, we will not follow your orders. It has given an open challenge.”

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi said the issue is a “blot” on India’s image. Taking the battle against the Centre to President Pranab Mukherjee, Gandhi said RSS was trying to impose its “flawed” and “dead” ideology on the students of the country but his party will not allow it.
