Retorting Home Minister Amit Shah’s “shameless” remark against him, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the former has become arrogant even before becoming the prime minister. The Aam Aadmi Party leader asserted BJP is not going to form the government after the June 4 Lok Sabha poll results.

"Yesterday Amit Shah ji came to Delhi and less than 500 people were present in his public meeting. After coming to Delhi, he started abusing the people of the country and said that the supporters of the Aam Aadmi Party are Pakistani. I want to ask him, the people of Delhi have formed our government by giving us 62 seats, 56 per cent vote share, are the people of Delhi Pakistanis?,” Kejriwal said.

The AAP leader asked, “The people of Punjab have given us 92 seats out of 117 seats, are the people of Punjab Pakistanis? The people of Gujarat, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Madhya Pradesh and in many parts of the country gave us love and trust, are all the people of this country Pakistanis?”

Kejriwal charged the Union home minister has become arrogant as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen him as his successor. “PM Modi has chosen you as his successor. You have become so proud of this that you have started abusing and threatening people. You have not become PM, yet, you have become so arrogant,” he said. The AAP leader claimed BJP will not form the government after June 4. “For your information, let me tell you that you are not becoming the PM, because, people are not forming the BJP government on June 4."

Campaigning in Delhi on Monday, Shah said, “Kejriwal and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi have no support in India, their supporters are in Pakistan.” Training guns at Kejriwal, Shah said he has not seen any leader who has taken more "U-turns" than the AAP national convener. "Kejriwal believes in the ’odd-even’ formula - on odd days he gives speeches against corruption and on even days he forms ‘Ghamandiya’ (arrogant) alliance with the corrupt. On odd days, he becomes the owner of Delhi and on even days, the owner of the country. On odd days, he seeks the resignation of others and on even days, he goes to jail without resigning," Shah said.

Alleging that there have been numerous scams under the Kejriwal government, the senior BJP leader said, "There has been a probe into the liquor scam only so far. Investigation into seven other scams remains to be conducted."

 Describing Kejriwal as "shameless", Shah said, "He is the only leader who has remained chief minister even after going to jail. After the BJP wins the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, the 'Fevicol' with which Kejriwal is sticking to the chair of the chief minister will come unstuck."
