New Delhi: Reacting strongly to the Union Law Minister's alleged intimidation to IAC activists, Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday sought the intervention of the Prime Minister and the President in this connection.

He has also announced to go ahead with scheduled protest in Farrukhabad and said that it is impertinent for the country's law minister to use such a language.

He tweeted, "Killing me won't help. Kyonki poora desh jaag gaya hai. Ek arvind marega to 100 arvind khade honge."

At a closed-door function on Tuesday night whose footage was aired by some news channels, Khurshid said, "I have been made the Law Minister and asked to work with the pen. I will work with the pen but also with blood."

Apparently referring to Kejriwal's threat to stage a protest in his home constituency from November 1, the senior Congress leader said, "Let them come to Farrukhabad and visit Farrukhabad. But let him also return from Farrukhabad."

Khurshid, whose NGO Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust has been accused by Kejriwal of financial bunglings, said, "They say we will ask questions and you have to give the answers.
We say you hear the answers and forget about asking questions."

Kejriwal saw the comments as a death threat to him. "Mr Salman Khurshid has threatened me. The kind of language which he has used, it does not suit the stature of country's Law Minister," the activist said.

"Killing me won't help because the country has been awakened. If one Arvind is killed, there will be another 100 Arvind. Rather than threatening like this, it would be better that Congress sensed the anger of people and took some concrete steps against corruption," he said.

Khurshid was accompanied by his wife Louise and several other supporters during the programme.
