Aam Aadmi Party has hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his ‘five-star activists’ remark.

“AAP hopes that Prime Minister would desist from openly siding with businesses and interest groups and hold the dignity of the high office he holds,” Arvind Kejriwal led party said in a release.

“With the Prime Minister using sarcastic adjectives like five-star activists for civil society members, it gives a clear incentive to officers and people in important positions in the government to be unnaturally tough on NGOs and people who raise their voices against illegal acts of government and corporate biggies,” the party said.

Talking about the work done by the civil society members, AAP said, “It may be noted that most of the anti-corruption breakthroughs in the ten year rule of Manmohan Singh led UPA  government have been made possible due to vigilance and activism of civil right activists. Now, inspite of the efforts of the BJP led government to shut their voice, the efforts of the civil society shall continue unabated and with much more vigor.”

Any efforts to chalk the voice of the civil society would be opposed by the Aam Aadmi Party in the Parliament and on the streets. A vibrant democracy is impossible without due respect to constitution and the different section of the society including the civil rights activists, the release said.
