Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Mahesh Sharma, questioning how the latter managed the expenses of his daughter’s wedding despite withdrawal limits in the wake of demonetisation.
“BJP MP Mahesh Sharma’s daughter wedding. Is he making all the payments in cheque? Is he managing the marriage in Rs 2.5 lakhs? How his notes were exchanged?” Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Kejriwal asked.
