How BJP MP Mahesh Sharma managed daughter’s wedding in 2.5 lakhs, asks Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Mahesh Sharma, questioning how the latter managed the expenses of his daughter’s wedding despite withdrawal limits in the wake of demonetisation.

“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?” Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Kejriwal asked.

The AAP has been protesting against the central government’s demonetisation of Rs 500 and 1,000 banknotes.

Opposition called for a ‘Bharat bandh’ on Monday in protest against the November 8 announcement.

Serpentine queues have been witnessed outside banks and ATMs, as anxious people wait hours to deposit or exchange their scrapped notes or withdraw cash.
