"Congress then and Arvind Kejriwal now misled people in the name of converting unauthorised into authorised. A house, in the unauthorised colony, had been sealed. If there are 1000 houses there why was only one sealed? I oppose this pick and choose system," ANI quoted Tiwari, as saying.
The AAP and the Congress party hit back at Tiwari, linking the video with the ongoing sealing drive by the BJP-ruled municipal corporations in the national capital.
"In the morning, they (BJP) conduct sealing and break the lock in the evening. Do they feel people are fools," tweeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
