New Delhi: The BJP and the Congress on Sunday criticised Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's maiden interactive session 'Talk to AK', terming it a marketing gimmick.
"It was a pre-scripted and pre-managed show where the Chief Minister spoke one-sidedly for over 50 minutes and set his agenda for Punjab and Goa," Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay told IANS.
"He doesn't talk about Delhi and all the questions and answers were pre-planned," he alleged, adding: "It was a complete marketing gimmick on the money of Delhiites."
Senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi took to Twitter to fire salvos to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader.
"Tall claims of cleanliness and screening, still so many corrupt party members! Is screening bad or were corrupt knowingly allowed?" he wrote in series of tweets.
"Your appointment of 21 MLAs holding office for profit clearly contravenes constitution. How can you claim to be clean?"
Singhvi also questioned the Delhi government's decision to give reservation to Punjabi-speaking teachers, asking: "is it benefitting the people of Delhi?"
He also wondered why anyone in AAP "who voices disagreement with you (Kejriwal) shown the door"?
Kejriwal on Sunday held an interactive session with people across the country through social media, phone calls and text messages, in a programme titled 'Talk to AK'.
The programme was moderated by noted music director Vishal Dadlani.
