Sushilkumar Shinde calls Kejriwal mad
Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Wednesday called Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal "mad" for his two-day, under-the-sky agitation in winter rain in the capital.
Shinde said he was compelled to cancel the leave of many Delhi Police personnel, on account of the agitation.
"This was because of the mad chief minister's agitation in the capital," Shinde said in his address at a function in Hingoli, 325 km from here.
"Because of the 'yeda' (mad) chief minister, I had to deploy thousands of policemen and cancel leave of many of them," Shinde said.
Anjali Damania, leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Maharashtra, demanded an apology from Shinde for his comment.
"Is this kind of language acceptable to those pointing fingers at us," Damania asked.
