Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday slammed Punjab Chief Minister Captain (retired) Amarinder Singh stating that from the beginning he was standing in support of the farmers.
In a tweet in Hindi, citing a media report Kejriwal said, “Captain ji from the beginning I am standing with the farmers. I fought with the Centre and did now allow the stadiums in Delhi to become jails. I am serving the farmers.
”Levelling allegations against the Punjab Chief Minister, Kejriwal asked, “You have done setting with the Centre to get the ED case on your son forgiven, sold the farmers agitation? Why?”
In another tweet, Kejriwal said, “Fast is pious. Wherever you are, do fast for farmers. Pray to God for the success of their struggle. In the end, the victory will be of farmers.”
Earlier, Punjab Chief Minister had targeted his Delhi counterpart Kejriwal for exploiting the ongoing agitation of the farmers to further the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) petty electoral agenda in Punjab with “blatant lies and brazenly false propaganda”. Cornering Kejriwal, the Punjab Chief Minister went on to call the AAP chief a “shameless liar”.
