Amarinder dares Kejriwal to fight from Punjab, Delhi CM says ‘We are fighting Badals/Majithia’


As the dates for Punjab assembly polls draw closer, the Congress President Amarinder Singh Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have once again found themselves engaged in a heated Twitter war.

Singh, the former Chief Minister of Punjab and the face of Congress campaign in the state, dared Kejriwal to contest the assembly polls from Punjab.

Responding to Kejriwal’s tweet, Singh asked if the latter was coming to Punjab so that he could fight against him.

Kejriwal, who earlier in a tweet had nudged the Punjab Congress strongman asking if he was contesting against Punjab CMM Prakash Singh Badal, state deputy CM Sukhbir Badal, junior Badal’s brother-in-law Bikram Majithia or from a “safe seat”.

Singh hit back instantly saying the Badal chapter in Punjab was over and that Kejriwal should come and fight elections in Punjab and he would fight Kejriwal.

“Badals’ story is over. You tell me where you’re contesting from and I will come fight you there!(sic),” Amarinder tweeted.

The PCC chief’s response came after Kejriwal tweeted, “Sir, r u fighting against Prakash Badal ji or sukhbir Badal or Majithia or safe seat(sic)?”

After a brief lull overnight, they both resumed their Twitter spat in the morning.

It all started with Kejriwal’s response, which said, “So, u r fighting me, not Badals/drugs. Badals also say they will fight against me. U n Badals wish to fight agnst me not agnst each other. (sic)”

To which, Singh replied, “I’ve defeated Jaitely-Majithia combine when you didn’t even know a thing about Punjab. But tell us, why are you so scared of fighting me?”

Pat came Kejriwal’s reply, “I m not fighting punjab elex. So, ur challenge hollow. We r fighting Badals/Majithia, who sunk Punjab in drugs. N u r fighting us, not them? (sic)”

Amarinder had earlier in the day accused AAP of “colluding” with Badals after the Kejriwal-led party fielded former journalist Jarnail Singh against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in Lambing constituency, saying that he was a weak candidate.

In October, both leaders had faced each other in a bitter Twitter war when the AAP chief had accused the Congress’ Punjab CM hopeful of using “drug money” in his campaign.
