Union Minister Salman Khurshid Sunday called Arvind Kejriwal a runaway “groom”, as political parties hurled jibes at the AAP leader after he quit as the Delhi Chief Minister.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said Kejriwal acted in a haste by submitting his resignation on Friday over the Jan Lokpal bill, and hinted that it was probably the “aim”.
Taking a dig at the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) chief, Khurshid, the External Affairs Minister, said that Congress supported Kejriwal and gave him eight MLAs in “dowry” but what could be done if the “groom” fled away.
“We have supported Kejriwal and gave him eight MLAs in dowry…What can we do if the ‘dulha’ (groom) fled away,” he told reporters in Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh.
He dismissed the allegation that Congress colluded with BJP against the Kejriwal government to block the Jan Lokpal Bill in the Delhi Assembly.

“There is no understanding with BJP against Kejriwal… For protecting Constitution, all parties used to unite…,” he added.
NCP leader and Union Minister Tariq Anwar accused Kejriwal of running away from his responsibilities and relinquishing his post in an unilateral manner which breached the trust of Delhi people.
“The manner in which Kejriwal has quit proves that he is a person who runs away from discharging his responsibilities,” Anwar told reporters in Katihar in Bihar.
By resigning from the chief minister’s post Kejriwal has proved that he has not only failed in his duties, but also breached the trust of the people of the national capital region, he added.
The Union minister ridiculed Kejriwal for getting busy with his party’s preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections within hours of resigning as chief minister.
Omar said that if Kejriwal wanted to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill, he could have waited for Lieutenant Governor’s assent.
“He(Kejriwal) acted in a hurry to submit resignation,” the Chief Minister told reporters on the sidelines of a function in the ski resort of Gulmarg.
