Kejriwal has the habit of levelling baseless allegations: BJP

New Delhi: Hitting back, BJP on Monday said AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has the habit of levelling baseless allegations and then running away after he took potshots at its top brass over reports that Amit Shah and Asaduddin Owaisi had allegedly struck a deal during the Bihar polls.

A former BJP MLA from Gujarat has alleged that the BJP chief and AIMIM president had met to clinch a deal to polarise voters in parts of Bihar during the state assembly polls, prompting Kejriwal to tweet that if true, it “revealed real face of BJP-Modi-Shah”.

“BJP condemns Kejriwal for his remarks. He is notorious for practising petty politics based on lies and unfounded charges. It is his habit to level baseless allegations and run away when confronted with facts. He is spreading false and factually incorrect claims,” BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said, attacking him and his associates.

Sharma cited the Delhi Chief Minister’s strong defence of the then Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar, arrested in a fake degree case, and his then Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar, arrested in a corruption case, to make his point.

“He has been unmasked. From fighting against corruption, he has come to protect it,” he said.
