Delhi: In a shocker on Saturday, Arvind Kejriwal hinted at an upcoming ban on the use of mufflers in the capital city of Delhi. He said, “Lately, I’ve seen a large number of people wearing mufflers to hide their identities, we have also had reported increase in crimes by men wearing mufflers. I have discussed with my fellow ministers, and we have decided to take necessary steps against the muffler.”
What followed, was a series of mixed views, which later turned into a city-wide protest against this unjust decision. Manmohan Singh when approached by media regarding this issue said, “The congress is supporting Arvind, for the first time ever. This was a much needed decision, to keep the criminal activities of Delhi in check. I personally will be voting for him in the next elections.”
citizens however were furious after hearing the news. They believed that all citizens should not suffer due to wrongdoings of some. Here’s what they said.
“I am deeply saddened by this stupid decision of Kejriwal. It is not right to ban mufflers or anything for that matter. I will not vote for him unless he removes the ban.”
“I loved mufflers. I also collect them, i have more than 200 different mufflers. Due to the ban, i can no longer use those mufflers. I want compensation !”
“This is against the constitution. We should raise our voice against such a practice.” said a BJP spokesperson. “This news is bigger than the news that all the movies I work in are flop.” said Abhishek Bachchan, mourning the decision.
An executive from PVR said that the sales of tickets for the movie ‘Bahubali 2’ has seen a decrease since the announcement.
A MLA from AAP when asked about his views regarding the announcement, said on Friday, “When i joined this party, i thought the, specially Arvind ji respected other’s sentiments. But after this incident, I will resign and form my own party: The mufflers.”
The protests soon spread to the whole world. There was huge backlash against Arvind Kejriwal, people even asked him to resign.
Following, this frenzy of hate, Arvind Kejriwal issued another statement which included the following.
“I am really sorry if what i said yesterday had hurt someone’s sentiments. We do not have any personal problems with the mufflers, but had wanted to ban them only for the betterment of the society. But after what happened today, we have decided that we will not put a complete ban on mufflers. The last thing I’d like to say is that: Ye sab mile hue hain ji !”
