The Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal started the seventh day of his sit-in protest on Sunday, at the Lt Governor’s house, on Sunday with an early morning tweet in Hindi which attacked the prime minister.
Good morning Delhi
जो प्रधान मंत्री किसी राज्य में अफ़सरों की हड़ताल करवा के वहाँ का काम काज ठप करता है, क्या ऐसे प्रधान मंत्री के हाथों में देश का लोकतंत्र सुरक्षित है?
