New Delhi: The on-stage bonhomie between Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has tainted Kejri’s so called anti-corruption campaign, alleged a section of intellectual class.

Finding himself at par with fodder scam tainted Lalu, Kejriwal on Monday clarified that it was the RJD chief who first shook hands with him and then pulled him for a hug.

Kejriwal clarified that he had not taken the initiative and that AAP was against Lalu’s record of corruption.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader also added that the party would continue to fight corruption and that he had not done any alliance with Lalu’s party.

“I go to Rashtrapati Bhawan. All party leaders come there. They meet us. In Nitish Kumar’s swearing in Lalu Yadav was on the stage. He shook hand and pulled me and hugged me. And held my hand and raised it. It was projected and questions were asked. We have not formed an alliance. We are against his record of corruption and we’ll always oppose it,” Kejriwal said, as per PTI.

Kejriwal made the comments at his party’s National Council meeting here.

Further, Kejriwal said that he was opposed to dynasty politics the kind that was witnessed in Bihar with two of Lalu’s sons sworn in as ministers.

“His two sons are ministers. We are against that too. I am happy that questions are being asked. Questions are being asked because people have hope, because they think we are different. Nobody asks questions when other leader hug Lalu ji, it’s good for us,” Kejriwal added.

The RJD chief cannot contest elections as of now as he has been convicted in a fodder scam case.
