NEW DELHI: Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said people were missing an "educated prime minister" like Manmohan Singh.

The former prime minister was the target of Kejriwal's anti-graft campaign during the 2013 Delhi Assembly polls and the Lok Sabha polls the following year.

"People missing an educated PM like Dr Manmohan Singh- PM should be educated. Its dawning on people now that the PM should be educated," Kejriwal tweeted, posting a Wall Street Journal article on the falling rupee.

Kejriwal and members of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have earlier, too, questioned Modi's academic credentials and the authenticity of his degree.

The chief minister also attacked the BJP for playing "dirty politics" over the water crisis in the national capital.

"BJP playing dirty politics with Delhiities water. Delhi was getting this water for 22 yrs. Suddenly, present BJP govt of Haryana drastically reduced this supply. Why? Pl don't make people suffer due to ur dirty politics," he said on Twitter.

    People are not concerned about Educational Qulaification Mr.Kujliwal. In Tamilnadu we had a CM Shri.Kamaraj who did excellant job for the welfare of people & is self less. We also know what happened under the so called educated PM - all scams & he was only looking other side when all scams broke out under his nose. People of Delhi also know what the crusader of clean politics Mr.Kujliwal is now doing - You will see the result in next Assembly election. Kujliwalji you are the biggest liar & cheater - people has understood you.

    But Mr Kejriwal even highly academically qualified people like Dr MMS have no grit to question the wrong doers who looted the resources of the country. Do you remember Mr Kamaraj who had no college education
