Kejriwal who spoke to Times Now said that 'all these days she said she was open to a debate but she hadn't received a formal letter, hence I have written a formal letter to her proposing the debate.'
Kejriwal also said: "I don't want a one-on-one debate with her. Let Dr Harshvardhan from BJP also be a part of the debate. Let there be the representatives from the three political parties and let the people ask us the questions."
Dikshit: Let Kejriwal approach me first, then I will decide about debate
Sheila Dikshit , on the other hand said that she was 'neither open nor closed to the idea of a public debate.' "Let him (Kejriwal) write to me first. I will see what is the format of the debate, what exactly he has in mind, then I will decide," she told Times Now in an interview.
She went on to add that she was not shy of public debates and that she felt that these were healthy for a democracy.
Kejriwal emphasised on the fact the debate must not be held in a studio and must be held in an open space like the Ram Lila Maidan, where all three candidates contesting elections can face the people.
Kejriwal said that in the debate he would like to raise issues of inflated electricity and water bills that is affecting the common man.
Meanwhile, recently anointed CM candidate for Delhi, Harshvardhan said that he was okay with a three-way debate with Kejriwal and Dikshit.
