BJP’s protest over renovation of CM Kejriwal’s residence a dud: AAP

The ruling AAP and the BJP on Wednesday sparred over the indefinite hunger strike called by the saffron party in Delhi against alleged excessive spending on the renovation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s official residence here. While the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed the protest has turned out to be a dud and even BJP workers did not participate in it, the opposition party hit back saying ministers of the Kejriwal government were trying to mislead people by spreading lies while stressing that the dharna goes on from 10.30 am to 5 pm.The BJP has been attacking Kejriwal and AAP, alleging that the chief minister spent Rs 45 crore on the renovation of his official residence between 2020 and 2022. On Monday, it launched an indefinite dharna near Kejriwal’s 6, Flagstaff Road, Civil Lines residence, asking him to open his bungalow to the general public so that they can witness his ”lavish living”, even if the entry into it is ”ticketed”.
