The exchange of words between the two leaders on social media platforms started on Wednesday after Kejriwal tweeted that closing schools is not a solution and there is a need to open more schools across the country. He had shared a link to a news story which claimed that some schools in Assam were “closed”.
Sharma on Sunday asked Kejriwal on Twitter what happened to his promise to make Delhi London and Paris.
“When you couldn’t do anything, you started comparing Delhi with Assam and the northeastern states,” he said. Sharma said that when the BJP comes to power in a city like Delhi, it will make it the most prosperous city in the world.
On reports of Kejriwal’s visit to Assam, Sharma said, “I am sad that the desire to come to Assam did not arise in your mind when the people of Assam were facing a disaster like floods.” “And yes, your Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has been invited from Assam,” he said.
The Twitter war between the two chief ministers continued on Sunday as well. The Aam Aadmi Party chief told Sharma, “You haven’t answered my question, when should I come to see your schools? It doesn’t matter if your school is not good. Will we fix it together?
In another tweet, Kejriwal said, “Believe me, when the AAP government is formed in Assam, we will develop Delhi like there too. If we end corruption, there will be no shortage of resources.
For the last four days, the war of words between Kejriwal and Sharma is going on on Twitter. Aam Aadmi Party chief Kejriwal had tweeted on Saturday, “We have a saying here. Someone asks “when shall I come” and you say “come anytime” which means “don’t ever come”. I asked you “when should I come to see your government school” you didn’t even tell. Tell me when I will come, then I will come.”
The Delhi Chief Minister made this tweet after Sharma’s statement on Friday. Sharma had pointed out the difference between Delhi and Assam in a series of tweets and ridiculed Kejriwal.
