Kejriwal questions BJP MP over family wedding
New Delhi, Nov 28 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday sought to know how central minister Mahesh Sharma was managing his child’s upcoming wedding and if he was making payments in cheques.
Kejriwal also asked if Sharma would manage all the wedding expenses within Rs 2.5 lakh — the highest cash limit the government has allowed to withdraw from banks for weddings after high value currency notes of Rs 500 and 1,000 were spiked.
“BJP MP Mahesh Sharma’s daughter wedding. Is he making all the payments in cheques? Is he managing the marriage in Rs 2.5 lakh? How his notes were exchanged?” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader asked in a tweet.
Sharma, the Minister of State for Culture and Tourism, corrected Kejriwal, saying it was his son who was getting married.
“Yes, I am making all the payments through bank,” the MP from Gautam Buddha Nagar in Uttar Pradesh tweeted.
