Delhi Chief Ministertook to twitter to hit out at veteran journalist Shekhar Gupta over the latter’s tweet about the resurgence of Malaria and Chikungunya caused deaths in the capital.
Gupta had tweeted that Delhi was facing Malaria and Chikungunya caused deaths for the first time after five years, while the government in Delhi was more busy “conquering” Punjab, Goa and Gujarat — where Assembly polls are due.
Taking exception to Gupta’s tweet, Kejriwal asked him to step out in the open if he wanted to indulge in politics. Further, Kejriwal alleged that Gupta had worked for the Congress before and now he was trying to promote the Modi government’s interests.
Not stopping there, Kejriwal alleged that people like Gupta had brought a bad name to journalism. The Delhi chief minister ended his response by asking Gupta to focus on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who he said was out to “conquer” the world.
