Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today took to social media platform Twitter to critise Congress after it unveiled its Punjab manifesto today for the upcoming Assembly Elections. Kejriwal in his tweet said that Congress has released Punjab manifesto in Delhi and has claimed that all Congress leaders are campaigning in Delhi for tickets rather than focussing their attention on teh people of Punjab. He also taunted it by posting a message saying ‘Delhi is running Punjab Congress’.

Kejriwal sent out a series of tweets attacking Congress on various aspects related to the polls. In his succeeding tweets he took a dig at Congress Punjab President and former CM Captain Amarinder Singh asking him whether Congress implemented any promise made in Punjab menifesto or in any other Congress-ruled state. He called the promises such as farm loan waiver, unemployment allowance etc. to be a ‘false promise’.

Further the AAP Chief tweeted, “Congress High Command made Punjab manifesto. Why doesn’t Cong get these promises implemented in other Cong ruled states?” (sic)

Kejriwal while addressing a public meeting in Mapusa, Goa yesterday claimed that his ‘honest’ party does not have money to fight the upcoming assembly elections in Punjab and Goa. “We don’t have a single penny to contest Punjab and Goa polls. Our bank account is empty,” The Indian Express quoted him saying.

In a face-off between the duo on Twitter that ensued after Amarinder dared Kejriwal to contest against him, the latter tweeted: “I m not fighting punjab elex. So, ur challenge hollow. We r fighting Badals/Majithia, who sunk Punjab in drugs. N u r fighting us, not them?” (sic)
