The war of wards between social activist Arvind Kejriwal and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi on Twitter took a turn for the worse on Monday with the later taking a dig at Kejriwal's party symbol.
In a series of tweets, Bedi launched a veiled attack on Kejriwal as she said that 'the broom should be used for cleansing and not threatening'.
The broom also works unconditionally. Because its for cleansing and performing not threatening!— Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) December 16, 2013
The broom is to sweep away the dirt and not the good! Broom if used for other purposes loses its utility!— Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) December 16, 2013
Bedi also questioned as to how could Anna be misled.

Her remarks came on Twitter against the backdrop of tweets by the AAP chief, who on Saturday expressed his displeasure over Hazare's support to government's Lokpal Bill.
Following Kejriwal's statement on Anna, Bedi accused Kejriwal of trying to keep the issue of the Lokpal alive for political gains.
She took to twitter slamming the AAP chief as she questioned Kejriwal's motive.
How can a political leadership which is opposing all other political parties,concede Lokpal to others which weakens their very Foundation?— Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) December 15, 2013
The Twitter war between the two started when Kejriwal questioned Anna for agreeing to government's version of Lokpal, which according to him was a 'jokepal'.
So why did Anna agree for such a jokepal? Which forces are misleading him? I am really sad.— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 14, 2013
To this, Bedi retaliated tweeting: "Lokpal is certainly not a Jokepal! Those who term it this way perhaps want to keep the issue alive."
