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.
If Del police were wid us, Mahesh Giri n Karan Singh Tanwar wud have been arrested and interrogated by now in MM Khan murder case— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) June 20, 2016
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.
