Mr Majithia reached Amritsar on Friday to attend the case in the district court. Mr Kejriwal did not appear in the court today. Talking to reporters, after the hearing, Mr Majithia said that he will send Mr Kejriwal to jail. “Mr Kejriwal is a Haryanvi by heart, his soul is Delhi’s and he knows nothing about Punjab”, he added.

Earlier, Mr Kejriwal appeared in the court on 1 November. He challenged Mr Majithia to get him arrested.
