Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal : Tough times

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday questioned the funding of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Mahesh Sharma’s daughter’s wedding, asking whether he managed the marriage expenses in Rs 2.5 lakh.

The AAP chief also asked if Sharma was making all the payments in cheques and how he exchanged his old notes.

“BJP MP Mahesh Sharma’s daughter wedding. Is he making all the payments in cheque? Is he managing the marriage in Rs 2.5 lakhs? How his notes were exchanged?” Kejriwal asked.

However, Sharma, the Minister of State for Culture, responded to Kejriwal’s criticism saying the entire payment is being made through the bank

“First get your facts correct. It is my son’s wedding. Yes, the entire payment is being made through the bank,” he tweeted.


The AAP has been protesting against the central government’s decision to ban the Rs 500 and 1,000 banknotes ever since the announcement made on November 8.

Calling the currency ban a “huge scam”, Kejriwal earlier alleged that BJP had told all its “friends” about the move much before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement.

“Before the PM announced the move on Tuesday, the  BJP, and its friends had been alerted and they had already stashed their cash,” Kejriwal said.

“A huge scam has been perpetrated a few days ago in the name of tackling corruption,”Kejriwal accused. “When the PM announced the move, he had informed all of his friends who had black money and they secured their money,” the Aam Aadmi Chief added.
