Amarinder, Kejriwal in Twitter war over Punjab polls contest
Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal were engaged in a war of words on Twitter with the former daring the AAP chief to contest against him in the upcoming Punjab polls.
Kejriwal said he was not contesting Punjab Assembly elections and was fighting the Badals and state minister Bikram Singh Majithia to help free the state from the menace of drugs, following which Amarinder demanded an apology from him for making “false personal commitments”.
“Always knew your screeching in Punjab was pure drama!Now that you’ve conceded,apologise for your months of lies & false personal commitments,” Amarinder said on Twitter. The Twitter war started with AAP nominating Delhi MLA Jarnail Singh to contest against Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal from Lambi. Amarinder termed Jarnail as a “weak candidate” and alleged that AAP was “colluding” with the Badals.
