New Delhi, Jan 12: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his image with a 'charkha' (spinning wheel) on the 2017 calendar published by the Khadi Village Industries Commission (KVIC).
Attacking the Prime Minsiter for his picture, Kejriwal tweeted that to become Mahatma Gandhi requires years of austerity and not posing with a charkha.
गांधी बनने के लिए कई जन्मों की तपस्या करनी पड़ती है। चरख़ा कातने की ऐक्टिंग करने से कोई गांधी नहीं बन जाता, बल्कि उपहास का पात्र बनता है https://t.co/rIDqQM3IUW— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) January 12, 2017
Kejriwal's tweet came following a news report re-tweeted by one of his party's unit that most employees and officials of KVIC were hurt after Narendra Modi's image showed up on the 2017 wall calendar and table diary published by KVIC, displacing Gandhiji.
The cover photo of the calendar and diary shows Modi weaving khadi on a large 'charkha', in the same classic pose as Gandhiji.
