Kurukshetra MP Naveen Jindal on Saturday challenged Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to prove the allegations levelled against the former or resign from politics.
Jindal said it was cheap politics and Kejriwal was no one to certify the character of a person; instead, he should clarify the working of his minister Somnath Bharti and answer the questions raised by AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binni.
Jindal, whose name figures in the list of 165 "corrupt" political leaders issued by Kejriwal on Friday, was speaking after the foundation-laying ceremony of Agrasen Senior Public School by Vaishya Agrawal Panchayat at Dabkheri village near Kurukshetra.
Jindal asked, "Who is Kejriwal to issue a character certificate? He must do his job. I live in Delhi and within a month of his government, nothing positive has been done. Kejriwal should try to keep the promises made to the public. He knows he is unable to keep them, so he is indulging in mudslinging.
Jindal said Haryana under Bhupinder Singh Hooda had done well as compared to other states. "We are better than Delhi in so many respects. There are policies and programmes for every section of society. The financial inclusion by the Hooda government in the state is praiseworthy whereas Delhi is losing its glory under Kejriwal. His minister's activities are undemocratic and the language used is unparliamentary," he said.
Calling Kejriwal a hypocrite, Jindal said he must produce evidence to support his allegations or quit politics.
