Hours after Union Home Minister Amit Shah accused Arvind Kejriwal of wasting public money on advertisements, the Delhi Chief Minister on Sunday (January 5) said the BJP chief only “abused” him instead of talking about development.

Shah addressed BJP workers at a booth-level workers’ rally on Sunday, during which he accused Kejriwal of “wasting” public money on advertisements and “misleading” people. He also said the BJP will come to power in Delhi under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Pointing out the “shortcomings” of the AAP government in Delhi ahead of the assembly polls, the BJP president also sought to know whether the Kejriwal’s dispensation has completed any work in the last five years in the national capital.


Reacting to the charges, Kejriwal said Shah said nothing other than to “abuse” him.

“I heard the entire speech of the Home Minister, Amit Shah ji. I thought he would point out the shortcomings of our work and talk about the development of Delhi. He did not say anything else except abusing me,” Kejriwal said in a tweet in Hindi.

“If they (BJP) have suggestions for Delhi, then tell and we will implement them in the next five years,” Kejriwal said.
