Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a tongue-firmly-in-cheek tweet, said even his wife does not “scold” him as much as the LG. “LG sahib, chill a bit!” Kejriwal said in his tweet in Hindi.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Manoj Tiwari on Thursday took a strong exception to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet targetting Lieutenant Governor Vanai Kumar Saxena and advising him to take some ‘chill’. Kejriwal, earlier in the day, took to Twitter and said that the L-G scolds him so much every day that even his wife would not be able to match that level.
“In the past 6 months, the L-G sahib has written many love letters to me. My wife hasn’t written that much to me in her entire life, the AAP convenor tweeted in Hindi.
LG , chill , chill

Taking offence over Kejriwal’s ‘mischievous’ tweet, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari lambasted Delhi CM for his insulting remarks on the LG. The former Delhi BJP chief also slammed Kejriwal for not taking any responsibility in 7 years of his governance and accused him of not shying away from scoring political gain.
“This petty language tells the mental level of Kejriwal ji.. In 7 years, not a single department has been handled, not even a single file has been signed by you, you are only interested in loot and lies which is now at this low level,” Tiwari tweeted in Hindi.

Kejriwal’s recent tweet taking a jibe at Saxena came at a time when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has been at loggerheads with LG over the latter’s probe orders on a host of initiatives of Kejriwal government, including the excise policy and power power subsidy scheme.
Several AAP leaders, including Kejriwal and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, have alleged that LG’s actions were politically motivated and that he has been working at the behest of the BJP-led Central government.
