Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has spent Rs 45 crore to refurbish his official residence CM Awas. He spent crores of rupees from kitchen to bathroom and on the curtains of the house. There was a time when CM Kejriwal used to question the air condition installed in the house of the then Chief Minister of Congress, Sheila Dikshit.
His former colleague Kapil Mishra, who often raised questions on Arvind Kejriwal, shared an old tweet of Arvind Kejriwal and wrote, “There is no bigger fraud than this in the politics of the country”. In this tweet, Arvind Kejriwal has raised questions on Sheila Dikshit and said that she has installed AC in her bathroom as well.
Arvind Kejriwal wrote in his tweet on October 27, 2013, “Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit ji’s house has 10 ACs. I have heard that there is AC in his bathroom too. Who pays their AC bill? Me and you fill up! My heart trembles, thinking that when 40% of Delhi’s people live in slums, then how can a Chief Minister live in a luxurious house!”
