NEW DELHI: BJP today attacked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his diatribe against Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, and alleged that the language used by the AAP leader was that of "C-grade Bollywood characters".
Amidst bitter confrontation with Jung over the authority to run the city administration, Kejriwal had called the Lt Governor "polling agent of BJP".
"Arvind Kejriwal seems to be under influence of the language used by C-grade Bollywood characters," Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhyay alleged.
"Delhi people have voted for us and the rest of the country supported Modi. So please let us run Delhi and you (Modi) run the country. Don't create trouble for us everyday through the LG. This is not being a good Prime Minister. Taking revenge for losing Delhi from people and AAP is not right," Kejriwal said, sending out a message to Modi.
Slamming Jung, Kejriwal in an interview to a TV channel had said he does not give time even to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia or other Delhi ministers for a meeting or take his calls.
"But if the 'chowkidar' (watchman) of (BJP President) Amit Shah calls him (LG), he will crawl and go," he had also said.
Kejriwal's comment on Jung was also criticised by former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, who took to Twitter today to hit out at Kejriwal.
"Words used in d interview by CM Delhi against d LG is defamatory. I believe it ought to be questioned in the Court. Or else a bad precedent!(sic)," she wrote on the micro-blogging site.
In a series of tweets she also wrote, "Why is CM Delhi day after day continuing to burn bridges rather than build bridges? Governance needs collaboration not confrontation."
