Mumbai, July 18 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's interactive session called 'Talk to AK' was a copy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Mann ki baat'. BJP leader Shaina NC said comparing Centre-state relations with India-Pakistan relations shows Kejriwal's 'mental block' "Arvind Kejriwal is clearly copying our honourable Prime Minister's Mann ki baat. But as they say, imitation is the best form of flattery. We take it in that spirit. Comparing about relations between Centre and State with that between India and Pakistan shows of a mindset which has a mental block," she told ANI. "The prime minister has always said that federalism, its structure will be that Centre always coordinates with states. That is why he has met chief ministers of all the states repeatedly to understand problems," she added. During the interactive session yesterday, which was moderated by music composer Vishal Dadlani, Kejriwal said his government had saved taxpayer's money and stopped the 'donation' trend to get admission in schools. The Chief Minister also highlighted subjects like 'mohalla clinic', electricity bill, compensation to farmers, hoarding of pulses. When asked about his promise of free Wi-Fi in the national capital, Kejriwal said that the work on it was stalled due to the recent arrest of his key aide Rajendra Kumar. Rajendra Kumar, an IAS officer who was Kejriwal's Principal Secretary, was arrested by the CBI earlier for his alleged involvement in Rs.50 crore scam. (ANI)
