Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been lashed out by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress
after he appealed to the Center to include images of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on currency notes to improve the country’s economic situation.
Addressing a press conference, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari alleged that Aam Aadmi Party leaders had “abused” Hindu gods and goddesses but were now coming with a “new mask”.
“Their (Aam Aadmi) party leaders, the party’s Gujarat state president and Aam Aadmi Party ministers have slandered Hindu gods and goddesses, said many things. – Save, they are coming up with new conspiracies. Those who objected to the Ram temple have come with a new mask,” said Manoj Tiwari.
“On one side they are insulting Hindu Gods and on the other side they are saying such things,” said Manoj Tiwari.
Congress leader Sandeep Dixit also took a dig at Arvind Kejriwal’s suggestion to the Center to fix the economy. Sandeep Dikshit said, “He is B team of BJP and RSS. He has no understanding. It is his vote politics. If he goes to Pakistan, he can also say I am Pakistani, so vote for me.”
