Kejriwal and Amarinder Singh gets into twitter spat

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said Punjab Congress President Amarinder Singh is fighting him rather than drugs or Badals of the Shirmomani Akali Dal.

"So, you are fighting me, not Badals/drugs. Badals also say they will fight against me. You and Badals wish to fight against me not against each other," Kejriwal, who is also the Aam Aadmi Party's national convener, tweeted. 

Captain Amarinder Singh had earlier asked Kejriwal in a tweet to reveal the constituency he will be contesting Punjab polls from, so that he could fight Kejriwal.

"I am not fighting Punjab elections. So, your (Amarinder's) challenge is hollow," Kejriwal said. 

He expressed both amusement and amazement at the Congress leader's choice as it included neither the sitting Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal or his deputy Sukhbir Singh Badal, nor state Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia. 

"We are fighting Badals/Majithia (Bikram Singh), who sunk Punjab in drugs. And you are fighting us, not them?" Kejriwal asked.

Kejriwal on Wednesday announced that AAP's Delhi legislator Jarnail Singh would contest against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in Lambi in the 2017 assembly elections.

This is not the first time both leaders have been engaged in a war of words on Twitter. 

Earlier, Kejriwal had accused Singh of working in collusion with Akalis to defeat AAP. However, former Punjab CM retorted with a barrage of tweets slamming Kejriwal and his party.
