Kejriwal targets PM over U’khand issue, Somalia remark

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Uttarakhand issue and his purported Somalia remark, and warned him against disqualifying 21 AAP MLAs appointed as Parliamentary Secretaries by Delhi government last year.

On Modi’s remark comparing Kerala eith Somalia, Kejriwal tweeted, “PM’s statement is an insult to the people of Kerala”, while on Uttarakhand he posted: “Modi Govt shud apologise to the nation for acting in unconstitutional and undemocratic manner in Uttarakhand (sic).”

“Hope Modi ji will learn a lesson from Uttarakhand and not do similar misadventure in Delhi by disqualifying our 21 MLAs”, he tweeted.

“Sushma ji is doing excellent work,” read the tweet.
