Arvind Kejriwal, the dharna-loving supremo of the Aam Admi Party, got a taste of his own medicine when BJP MP from East Delhi Mahesh Girri sat on a hunger strike in front his residence, demanding an apology for allegations levelled against him by the Delhi chief minister.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal had demanded that Girri should be arrested in connection with the murder of New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) official M M Khan. To this, the BJP MP had asked Kejriwal to either prove his charge against him or "resign" from the post of chief minister.

Kejriwal had also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for shielding the accused.

In a letter to Kejriwal on June 16, Girri invited him to the Constitution Club on Sunday to produce "evidence" against him in the M M Khan murder case.

Kejriwal did not turn up at the venue, following which Girri, accompanied by his party supporters, reached the chief minister's Flagstaff Road residence and sat on a hunger strike. Girri was joined by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Monday.

Kejriwal, in a letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, had accused him of trying to "save" Girri and NDMC vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in Khan's murder.

Giri had asked Kejriwal for a public debate over his allegations.

Khan, an estate officer of NDMC, was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
