During an interview with a private TV channel, Kifayatullah had claimed that Jemima’s first cousin named ‘Wiki’ is the actual mastermind behind WikiLeaks.

He also warned the government against creating any hurdles in its way of his march and requested the city’s administration to make security arrangements as required.

Later, he added that the party’s strategy won’t remain stagnant and will keep evolving to cope up with any situation.
