BJP Calls Kejriwal A ‘Mannerless CM’ for ‘Slouching On The Chair’ During PM’s Covid Review Meet

Yesterday, PM Modi held a meeting with the Chief Ministers on the issue of sudden spike in the Covid cases where Delhi CM and AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal was seen slouching on the chair and sitting in that position, on which now the BJP has lashed out at him. In the 19-second video clip shared by Delhi BJP on Twitter, Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik, Jagan Mohan Reddy of Andhra Pradesh and Basavaraj Bommai of Karnataka were among those also seen.

Kejriwal was purportedly seen putting both of his arms over his head and to the back of the chair, and sliding down the seating while Modi interacted via video conference. The Bharatiya Janata Party has slammed Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal after he was caught on camera slouching on the chair during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Covid-19 review meeting.

Taking to Twitter, the BJP Delhi shared the video clip of the moment and wrote,

“Mannerless CM of Delhi!”

There has been no public response yet from either CM Kejriwal or the AAP on the remarks by the BJP.

In that review meeting, PM Narendra Modi told the chief ministers and senior officials of various states to be vigilant because challenges pertaining to the Covid-19 pandemic are not yet over yet and the cases have again started increasing. He also asked for prioritisation of vaccination among all eligible children at the earliest for which he called for conducting specialised programmes in schools.

Apart from that, PM Modi also emphasised the need for Centre-state cooperation and said it is more required in the current situation when India is facing several challenges due to supply chain disruption. Referring to the petrol and diesel rates, the prime minister urged all the states to reduce VAT on fuel prices.

Claiming that the Centre reduced the tax in November last year, PM Modi named West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Telangana. “I am just appealing to you to implement what should have been done six months ago,” he told the CMs of these states. Meanwhile, amidst all these important discussions, the BJP has been continuously slamming the AAP convenor and Delhi CM Kejriwal on his viral video clip where he is slouching on the chair. Now all eyes are set on the AAP and CM Kejriwal, that whether the latter of his party gives any reply to the BJP, or would remain silent on the issue.
