Kejriwal 'most cunning'; BJP, Congress making 'nonsense' argument: Kumar Vishwas
Kumar Vishwas said Kejriwal knows that Akhilesh, Mamata and Nitish Kumar are the contenders for half of the minority votes.
Without naming Arvind Kejriwal, his former aide and the founding member of the Aam Aadmi Party, Kumar Vishwas took a jibe at the AAP chief and said the BJP and the Congress are making 'nonsense' argument against the most cunning person of the century. On Wednesday, Kejriwal made an appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to print the photos of Ganesha and Lakshmi on currency notes on the other side of the photo of Mahatma Gandhi, which started a major political controversy.

"He knows that Akhilesh, Mamata and Nitish Kumar are the contenders of the minority votes. If he can even tap the half of the 82% Hindu vote bank, then the rest of the minority vote will come to him out of their hatred for Modi," Kumar Vishwas tweeted. He also criticised journalists for praising Kejriwal only because of their blind opposition towards Modi. "Brother, he has no regard for father-wife-children-guru-friend and ideals," Kumar Vishwas said.
Former AAP leader Ashutosh also took a dig at Kejriwal and said his suggestion for economic development will also come in handy to UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. "Narendra Modi should immediately sack all economic advisors...follow his advice...India will prosper," Ashutosh tweeted.
Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan said Kejriwal is trying to outdo the BJP in Hindutva politics. "Kejriwal has certainly found the solution to the falling rupee and the Indian economy," he tweeted.
BJP leader Nitesh Rane tweeted a photoshopped image of a ₹200 note with a picture of Shivaji and said, 'This is perfect'.
Amid the ongoing debate, Congress leader Manish Tewari asked why there should not be a photo of Ambedkar on the new series of currency notes. "One side the great Mahatma the other side Dr Ambedkar. Non violence, Constitutionalism & egalitarianism fusing in a unique Union that would sum up the modern Indian genius perfectly," the Congress leader tweeted.
