Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday lashed out BJP over the political developments in Uttarakhand, accusing it of “horse-trading” and terming the party as “corrupt, anti-national and power hungry”.
“Brazen horse trading-first Arunachal now Uttarakhand. BJP proving to be most corrupt, deshdrohi and power hungry party,” the AAP leader tweeted.
Kejriwal also took a dig at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the tax proposals on PF and jewellers. “First tax on PF, then tax on jewellers. It seems Jaitley ji has decided to embarrass Modi ji.” Kejriwal appeared to liken the instability in Uttarakhand to the earlier developments in Arunachal Pradesh, where President’s rule was imposed in January for a brief period.
