Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has taken it upon himself to voice every opinion against the Prime Minister’s demonetisation move. Ever since Modi announced that old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 stand invalid, he hasn’t stopped criticising him and the government for the same. As soon as the news broke, Kejriwal took to Twitter to slam the initiative that Modi said has been taken against corruption and black money.

It started with the CM taking a dig at PayTM saying that the company is the biggest beneficiary of demonetisation. He has been repeatedly saying that demonetisation of currency of a huge scam pulled by the government to help ‘corrupt friends of BJP’. He then went on to ask three questions to the PM on social media including, “who has black money?”, “Pl provide a list of ur friends whom u told abt this decision before ur announcement” and “Who are these people converting 500/1000 notes to 2000 notes on large scale?”

In his latest tweet, the CM has slammed Modi for letting his 96-year-old mother stand in queue to exchange currency notes. “It’s not right on Modiji’s part to make his mother stand in a queue just for politics. In need be, I would stand in the queue but wouldn’t let my mother stand,” he tweeted in Hindi.

This morning, Modi’s mother Hiraba visited Oriental Bank of Commerce at her village in Gandhinagar. Coming in a wheelchair with her relatives, Hirabai won the Internet with her gesture. Though there were some who saw it as a ‘PR exercise’, most people praised her for supporting her son’s decision.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal’s tweet on Hiraba has created a furore on Twitter and here’s what people have to say. Some reminded of Anna Hazare’s fast and some reminded him of the time he swore on his children.

    Does the Indian Consution allow to recall a Chief Minister? I am sure Delhi realized their ber in voting for this person whose only agenda is Target Modi. There is nothing positive about this person. How can such a negative person even lead a team of 5 people in an office, forget a State.

            Its Modi ji's mother, she is special. Please don't send elderly and kids in ATM lines. Many times there is stampeded and police too using force. 26 people dead, w country rattled (except the corrupt politicians/businessmen/official) who have black money in properties/gold.... how can a Govt be so insensitive? There is no emergency for this demonetization. ... Modi ji has Police/CBI?IT to raid corrupt politicians/businessmen/official or declare unaccounted money saved abroad as national et and get it.
