Arvind Kejriwal, who has been attacking major political leaders for using chartered aircraft of corporates, today created flutter by traveling in such an aircraft from Jaipur to Delhi this evening.

As his rivals questioned his double standards, Kejriwal said a media group arranged for the aircraft as they wanted him to attend their conclave.

“As no other plane was available, I took the chartered plane. India Today group has invited me. They bore the cost of the chartered plane,” the former Delhi Chief Minister said.

BJP’s Smriti Irani attacked Kejriwal saying he was “hypocritical” as he claims to be against VIP culture but does not follow what he preaches.

“He has not even vacated the house he was allotted after becoming Chief Minister of Delhi,” she said.

Later, Kejriwal tweeted, “Reached India Today conclave from Jaipur. Since there was no regular flight, India Today
group hired a charter to reach me in delhi on time…India today has paid for it.”

I would urge (Narendra) Modi ji and Rahul Gandhiji also to disclose whose planes are they using and who pays for them, Kejriwal said in his next tweet.

      Nation is going through very critical phase. In last 10 years our neighbors have advanced in multi-way, while we leged behind. So the diff. is vast. We cannot take the risk now.AK is not trust-worthy, so only choice is Mr. Modi.Why I left AAP?AK spoke many lies, that everyone knows. New is, he say that he is Aam adami, he does not have money. But he has 3 flats worth Rs. 2 crores. IF ppl. buy multiple properties, its rate will increase multi-fold and property market will be beyond aam adami reach. Will he seel out 2 flats and donate that money for poor welfare as done by Mr. Modi.

          Listen to the Politics of what Politicians have to say, but you don't have to believe them!. He could have turned round & said "Did you want me to walk all that distance or hire a Bullock Cart"?.
