Arvind Kejriwal slams Prime Minister Narendra Modi for letter his mother to stand in queue Arvind Kejriwal slams Prime Minister Narendra Modi for letter his mother to stand in queue

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.

                    Just couple of days ago, Modi said in reference to Rahul standing in the line, that black money holders standing in the line. Does this applies to Modify mother too?

                      Who all think 1000 and 2000 denomination is going to help common man?lt;br/gt;Don't we think that this is exercise was important but should have been done with more planning?lt;br/gt;Why only this as first option, don't we think modiji should make it a law that all donations to political parties will be through cheque or online, stop cash there. Stop cash usage at grocery store is not as important as stopping accepting cash in donations by political parties?lt;br/gt;What modiji is doing different from congress, both are having list of people who have black money/corruption money stashed in Swiss bank account, why no action taken in last 3 years. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If you all think wisely, you will find what should be the order of execution. Swach bharat abhiyan is not that important then other points mentioned above. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Support a political party but use your brain and do not follow just because modiji bhashan accha dete hai

                        We all know how bjp IT department sends time and the messgae to be posted to these account holders. Each post get ₹60-₹70. All the accounts on the page have a similarity, they all post the same things and retweet the same thing at the same time. Okay, now how does Indian Express has access to all these accounts. Saw the speech of your cheif Editor against the pm and thought that you are the faces of Journalism, but this seems fishy. Time to switch back to Hindu. Bye bye Indian Express, this is a proof of you guys having contacts with BJP. Gonna show it to all the people in my company, bring down as many as your customers as possible.

                            For AK's kind information Modji's brother is an ordinary employee. He lives in 2 room flat. His mother is also very simple lady. Modiji does not makes his family rich unlike Congress. Modiji is going about and doing his duty for the nation. Entire India is his family. So stop being an .

                              At least Mr. Kejriwal is speaking the truth which the Blind Bhakts can't digest. Unlike Modi who hounded the AAp party through his chamcha LG and disrupted Mr. Kejriwal's excellent work towards giving the people of Delhi a better life. Through all the torture, false arrests etc. Mr. Kejriwal bore it all where were the Bhakts that time?

                                  C p Chandra das from Memphis, USA.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If The Prime minister has not shown any special treatment, it is praiseworthy. This shows, that the present PM, would not show any preference to his family members.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This reminds me of another instance from Tamilnad. Revered KAMARAJ hails from virudhunagar. His mother was staying in a very small house. There was no water and electricity connection to this house. When he became the CM of Tamilnadu, some officials immediately gave water connection to help the mother of CM. This was brought to the notice of CM. He immediately directed the officials to immediately disconnect the water connection. These demonstrate the character of great leaders.
