New Delhi: In yet another issue which may further escalate war of words between Centre and the Delhi government, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday slammed Narendra Modi for ignoring former prime minister and Congress stalwart Lal Bahadur Shastri.

The AAP chief also accused the Narendra Modi government of stopping the central funds meant for upkeep and celebrating the birth anniversary of the former prime minister.

Kejriwal made these remarks after paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on his 146th birth anniversary at Rajghat today.

Kejriwal, after visiting Rajghat to pay floral tributes to Mahatma Gandhi, proceeded to Vijay Ghat to pay homage to late prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Later, he also participated in a Gandhi Jayanti programme at the Delhi Vidhan Sabha.

In a series of tweets, the Delhi Chief Minister slammed the NDA government at the Centre for ignoring former prime minister LB Shastri.

Kejriwal also took potshots at the Narendra Modi government over its 'Swachh Bharat' mission and asked for information on the money spent on it in the last one year.

"1 yr of Swachh Bharat. Which streets got cleaned as a result of this campaign? How much budget spent on it? Time to question symbolism?" he tweeted.

The Delhi CM also commented on the recent lynching of an elderly Muslim man over alleged cow slaughter and consumption of beef.

"Gandhi's birthday 2day (sic). Let's pledge to put an end to divisive politics. Beef ban murder outcome of divisive politics. Plzzz. Let's stop this," he later tweeted.
