New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused of him using his mother for politics. Kejriwal comments came hours after PM Modi’s mother went to a bank to exchange the demonetised currency.
The Delhi CM condemned the way PM Narendra Modi has chosen to demonetise currency also moved a resolution in the assembly urging the President to direct Centre to withdraw the decision and demonetise the currency ban.
