BJP targets Arvind Kejriwal over minority appeasement

Meanwhile, BJP leaders have attacked the Arvind Kejriwal for lamenting over no invitation to the Ram Mandir event. Taking a dig at Delhi Chief Minister, senior BJP Leader and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi asked whether Arvind Kejriwal was thinking about poor Pujaris of the Mandir when he was paying Rs 18,000 to the Islamic clerics.

Targeting the Delhi government over its minority appeasement, Meenakshi Lekhi advised Arvind Kejriwal that ‘Raj Dharam and Ram Rajya called for equal treatment of all who are similarly placed without discrimination’.
