Unhappy over Kejriwal wearing sandals even during high-profile meetings, a mechanical engineer from Andhra Pradesh sent an open letter to the Delhi chief minister enclosing a demand draft of Rs 364.
Sumit Agrawal, in his letter, asked Kejriwal to buy a pair of shoes and urged him not to embarrass India any more. He said he was deepily aggrieved on hearing that the chief minister met French President François Hollande at the Rashtrpati Bhavan wearing sandals in the presence of the Indian President.
"I initially had plans to contribute some money from my own pocket. However, since I’m against donations to any political party, I decided against it & followed your footsteps instead. I took to the streets to gather money to fund a pair of footwear for you. Due to time constraints, I could only go to every flat in my own & 2 adjacent buildings," Sumit said in his letter, laced with humour, sarcasm and criticism.
In a scathing attack on the chief minister, Sumit said certain protocols have dictated our democratic set up and international relations since time immemorial. “Though you (a self proclaimed proud anarchist) might have no regard for them, it is strongly recommended that you maintain dignity with foreign delegates,” he said.
In his letter, Sumit has also enclosed an old template of the invitation letter of the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in which it had clearly prescribed a dress code for the guests.
