NEW DELHI -- Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his 'fakir' remark and said the PM calls himself a hermit, but wears a suit worth ₹10 lakh and tours the world.

"Modi ji you (call yourself) a fakir? Everyday, you wear four new pairs of clothes, you wear a Rs 10 lakh suit and tour the world. People have lost trust in your words," Kejriwal tweeted.

In his rally at Moradabad on Saturday, Modi said he was being targeted for cracking down on those with black money.

"I am being hounded as if I have committed some crime by waging a battle against graft. But, what can my opponents do to me? I am a fakir (hermit)...jhola ley kar chaley jayenge (I will exit with my little belongings)," Modi said.

In another tweet, he accused Modi of killing institutions and said what the country has achieved in 65 years will be undone by him in next five years.

"This PM killing institutions one by one- RBI, CBI, universities n now judiciary. Wat India achieved in 65 yrs will be undone by him in 5 yrs," Kejriwal tweeted.
