Calling AAP's national convener a "fraudster", state Chief Vijay Sampla said, "Kejriwal thinks the Dalit community of is greedy and up for sale. His thoughts make me pity him and at the same time they enrage me."

"Pity because in order to seize power in he (Kejriwal) has indulged in low-level politics and consequently, he himself has stooped low."

Seeking answers from the CM, Sampla said in a statement, "Kejriwal ji, you are saying that any one representative from the Dalit community would be made the Dy CM ... Why did you not have someone from the community as the Dy CM in ," he asked.
