AAP leader Gopal Rai slammed the BJP on Wednesday over a Sikh IPS officer posted in West Bengal being allegedly dubbed as a “Khalistani” by some saffron party activists and said it should apologise for insulting the officer. At a press conference here, Rai also alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), with its “arrogance of power”, hands out “certificates” as it sometimes label someone as a “traitor or a Khalistani or a terrorist or a Naxalite”.

“It shows how this thinking of hatred is ingrained in their psyche,” Rai charged, and said the BJP should apologise for this incident. There was no immediate reaction from the BJP to Rai’s comments. The BJP, however, has earlier denied the allegation and accused the police officer of not performing his duty in accordance with the Constitution.
