Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Monday caught in an unusual situation. The AAP chief, who is usually seen challenging his political opponents for public debates, got the taste of his own recipe as former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amrinder Singh challenged him for an open debate. The AAP chief ‘accepted’ the debate but only to ‘recommend’ four names to represent him. The unusual gesture made the twitteratis question Kejriwal’s chickening out from the scene. It all started with an accusation made by Kejriwal on Amrinder Singh via a Tweet. Kejriwal, tagging Amrinder in a Tweet, wrote: “Sir, ppl talking in Punjab that u using Majithia’s drug money in ur campaign. Is it true? U had saved him from CBI enquiry 3 yrs back.”

Amrinder, taking note of Delhi’s CM’s comment, right-away challenged him for an open debate on the issue. Here’s what he wrote: “Now that you’ve shot your mouth, don’t scoot like you typically do!Show courage & come for an open debate. Choose the time, place & platform.”

Facing, a first of its kind situation, Kejriwal said he accepts the challenge but recommend four other names to present his view.

Singh immediately slammed Kejriwal for attempting to evade from the debate.

“Punjabis believe in leading from the front,not hiding behind others.Or have you already accepted that you can’t face me for a public debate?”
