PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday termed the Karnataka High court staying the arrest of BJP leader B S Yediyurappa in a POSCO case on the grounds that he is former chief minister, a selective delivery of justice.

In contrast, she cited the examples of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Jharkhand former CM Hemant Soren, who, she said, were jailed on "far lesser charges." "Karnataka High Court's stay on BJPs BS Yediyurappa's arrest in POSCO case stating that the accused being a former CM is not going to go anywhere stands in contrast to the treatment meted out to another ex CM Hemant soren & sitting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal both behind bars since months on far lesser charges.
