The lawyer argued before Metropolitan Magistrate Abhilash Malhotra that Kejriwal's statements could spread "disharmony" and "disaffection" in the country.
    
Complainant and advocate Pradeep Dwivedi sought Kejriwal's prosecution under sections 124A (sedition) and 500(defamation) of the IPC alleging that there was "seditious intention" behind the remarks which spread "hatred and contempt" against the Prime Minister.
    
"Kejriwal's statement could spread disaffection and disharmony in the country. It was political rivalry between Kejriwal and Modi which was existing since elections,"advocate Anupam Dwivedi, who appeared for complainant, argued.
    
The court after hearing the arguments asked the advocate to place on record judgments in support of the complaint on May 28, the next date of hearing.
