Arvind Kejriwal says he does not need BJP's endorsement on being a Hindu (File)
Taking a dig at the BJP, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said his reading the Hanuman Chalisa has hurt leaders of the party.
In a tweet in Hindi, the Delhi chief minister also said he wanted BJP leaders to also read the devotional hymn addressed to Lord Hanuman everyday.
They will find peace and their language will also improve, Mr Kejriwal said, attacking his rival ahead of the February 8 Delhi polls.
"Me reading the Hanuman Chalisa is hurting BJP leaders," he said.
During an election rally in northwest Delhi's Kirari on Tuesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, "Now Arvind Kejriwal has started reciting the 'Hanuman Chalisa'. In coming days, you will see Owaisi reciting the same. This will certainly happen."
On Monday, Mr Kejriwal told a news channel that he does not need BJP's endorsement on being a Hindu. He also recited the "Hanuman Chalisa" on stage.
Results of the polls will be declared on February 11.
