Delhi: BJP MP Babul Supriyo on Tuesday hit back at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for refusing to take back him comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In an interview to a TV channel, Kejriwal stood by his words against PM Modi, whom he had called a 'coward' and went on to say that if someone shoots through
someone else's shoulders, they are cowardly.

Meanwhile, BJP also today condemned Kejriwal for using objectionable words against PM and said in doing so he has insulted the country and its people, especially those in Delhi who elected him with a huge mandate.
Accusing Kejriwal of treading the "wrong path" and doing acts which are not in his purview, BJP advised him to work within his limits and respect democracy to provide good governance and work for people's welfare instead.
"You are an elected Chief Minister. You have crossed the 'lakshman rekha' by using objectionable words against the Prime Minister. You are a master in speaking lies and are a 'lying machine'. You should remain within limits and respect democracy. BJP strongly condemns your actions," BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said, as per PTI.
He accused Kejriwal of trying to deflect media attention by speaking lies all the time and asked him to remain within the "limits of democracy" as BJP will not stoop to his level.
