NEW DELHI: New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal draws flak after photographs showed his name being displayed by a formation of children at Independence Day celebrations instead of Jai Hind or any other patriotic messages at Chhatrasal stadium on Saturday.

The development was seen as yet another attempt of self promotion by Kejriwal and many social media users criticised him for his “megalomaniac behavior”.

Reacting to it, Kejriwal said, “Some school students made visual formation of my name during Independence celebrations. I was not at all aware that students would do this. I am told it has been a practice in Delhi government to form visual formation of whoever chief guest is.” He also accepted that it was a wrong practice. “I will stop this practice forthwith,” the Chief Minister said.
