New Delhi, Nov 16: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 96-year-old mother Hiraba standing in a queue to swap her currency notes, saying it was not "appropriate" of him to do so for "political gains".
"It wasn't appropriate on part of Modi ji to make his mother stand in a queue for political gains. If I ever have to stand in a queue will do it myself and not make my mother queue up," Kejriwal tweeted.
मोदीजी ने राजनीति के लिए माँ को लाइन में लगा ठीक नहीं किया। कभी लाइन में लगना हो तो मैं ख़ुद लाइन में लगूँगा, माँ को लाइन में नहीं लगाउँगा pic.twitter.com/wEO1TYATO7— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 15, 2016
Accompanied by relatives, Hiraba, who was in a wheelchair, came to a branch of Oriental Bank of Commerce at Raisan village on Tuesday morning and got money worth Rs 4,500 exchanged.
Hiraba waited in queue for her turn at the bank.
