West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday took a dig at Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal for organising a fund raising dinner.

“They are collecting Rs 25 lakh with invitations to dinner parties. I condemn the hypocritical practice of raising money from dinner and lunch invites,” Banerjee said at the release of the Trinamool Congress manifesto.

“Maybe they had different prices for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, different rates for plain water and coloured water,” she said.

Without naming BJP or its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said some political parties were taking donations from people to sit in the front row of their rallies. “I can’t think about doing such a thing … “For first row seats, one has to pay Rs one lakh. I hate to talk of about this,” she said.
