On Sunday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took a swipe at the unity within the Opposition, following the Congress’s response to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s critique of its Chhattisgarh government. The Congress challenged Kejriwal to compare the performance of his current administration in Raipur with the previous Sheila Dikshit government.

In reference to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s comment on the Opposition bloc I.N.D.I.A., BJP’s national spokesperson Shehzad Poonwalla tweeted, “Nikah se pehle Teen Talaq.” He pointed out that the Congress declared contesting all seats against AAP in Delhi, while AAP dismissed Congress’s significance. Congress’s Anil Chaudhary accused Kejriwal of corruption, and Kejriwal criticized corruption in the Congress government in Chhattisgarh. Pawan Khera challenged Delhi’s model after Gundu Rao’s comments. Alka Lamba called Kejriwal “Aap ke thug.” Poonwalla concluded that Amit Shah’s previous statement had proven accurate.

During a discussion about the Delhi Services Bill in the Lok Sabha, Shah stated, “Want to tell Congress that after this bill is passed, they (AAP) are not going to enter into any alliance with you.” He urged Opposition MPs to prioritize Delhi’s well-being over forming alliances.

The Congress’s strong reaction followed Arvind Kejriwal’s criticism of the poor state of government schools during his campaign in poll-bound Chhattisgarh. Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann addressed an AAP workers’ convention in Raipur on Saturday.

In response, Congress’s Pawan Khera tweeted, “Why go to Raipur? Performance of our Chhattisgarh govt will be compared with the previous Raman Singh govt.” He proposed a debate to compare the Delhi government’s performance with that of Chhattisgarh’s Congress administration.

“Before flying to Raipur, talk about the ground situation of Delhi where the whole city is going into the abyss,” Khera added.

Despite their inclusion in the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), which comprises several opposition parties, friction has emerged between Congress and AAP at the state level.

Meanwhile, Kanchan Gupta, a senior adviser to the information and broadcasting ministry, commented, “In close to 10 years all he has built is a fancy Rang Mahal for himself — no schools, no colleges, no hospitals. His party MLAs have now begun exposing his bogus claims. Folks in Raipur wouldn’t know Delhi’s reality. So he takes a chance there. Beware of Kejriwal bearing gifts.”
