Arvind Kejriwal, Amarinder Singh's Back And Forth On Twitter Over Punjab Polls

AAP's Arvind Kejriwal, Congress' Amarinder Singh exchanged tweets over Punjab polls

New Delhi:  Arvind Kejriwal was delivered a challenge and he lobbed it right back in an exchange on Twitter with Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh, months ahead of polls in the state.

Comments
It all started last evening, when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief needled Mr Singh after the Congress leader accused him of deliberately fielding a weak candidate against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal as part of a secret understanding with the ruling Akali Dal.Mr Singh's instant response was a direct dare to the Delhi Chief Minister to contest against him.Mr Singh, a former Chief Minister of Punjab, is the face of the Congress for the polls. Mr Kejriwal's response to his dare came this morning.The two leaders have sparred on Twitter before. In October, they challenged each other to an open debate in the run-up to the polls.

Mr Kejriwal has alleged that the Akalis and the Congress are fighting the election together and the ruling party is funding the Congress' campaign with "drug money" - an indirect reference to state minister Bikram Singh Majithia, who faces allegations of drug-smuggling.
