How BJP MP managed daughter's wedding in 2.5 lakhs: Kejriwal

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Mahesh Sharma following his daughter's marraige and asked did he managed the marraige expenses in Rs 2.5 lakhs post demonetisation.

"BJP MP Mahesh Sharma's daughter wedding. Is he making all the payments in cheque? Is he managing the marraige in Rs 2.5 lakhs? How his notes were exchanged?" Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Kejriwal asked.

The AAP has been protesting against the central government's demonetisation of Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes.

The opposition has called for Bharat Band on Monday in protest against the November 8 announcement.

Serpentine queues have been witnessed outside banks and ATMs, as many anxious people waited for hours to deposit or exchange their spiked currency notes or obtain cash.
