Defending himself on anticipatory bail issue the MNM chief said,” I don’t fear arrest but I have got campaigning to do. Let them arrest.. But if they arrest me tensions will escalate. This is not my request but an advice,” He also said that his focus in Sunday’s campaign speech was on maintaining harmony.
