New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal and Home Minister Amit Shah clashed on social media this morning, ahead of Delhi Assembly election, with Arvind Kejriwal posting politely-worded jabs after the senior BJP leader criticised his AAP government's claims about free Wi-Fi services and the installation of CCTV cameras in schools to ensure safety of students.
On Thursday night, a tweet posted by the Delhi BJP quoted the Home Minister as claiming he had been unable to access the free Wi-Fi offered by the Delhi government despite searching so extensively that his phone ran out of battery.

Later on, Mr Kejriwal hit back, explaining to Union Home Minister  that his government had also installed free charging stations for mobile phones.

Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "Sir... we have also arranged free battery-charging along with free Wi-Fi," with a pointed reminder that the Home Minister needn't pay for the electricity because his government had also offered Delhi citizens free power up to 200 units.

Moreover, they both sparred over the installation of 1.2 lakh CCTV cameras in 1,041 government-run schools - a key promise in the last election - with Delhi BJP again quoting Mr Shah as saying the AAP was "fooling the public" by installing only a few cameras.
In order to hit back, Mr Kejriwal thanked Mr Shah and the BJP for noticing "some" CCTV cameras.

 Chief Minister hit back "I'm glad you saw 'some' CCTV cameras. A few days ago you said 'don't install a single camera'. Now let us show you the schools too?", further adding, "I am happy that the people of Delhi have changed the politics... so the BJP has to ask for votes on CCTV and schools".

Both the politicians were the focus of campaigning on Thursday, after they addressed rallies in the same neighbourhood on the same day. In Matiala which is in southwest Delhi the day began with a roadshow by Mr Kejriwal and ended with a public meet by Mr Shah.

Delhi Polls are scheduled for February 8, with Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP seeking a second consecutive term. Kejriwal's AAP claimed a record majority in 2015 polls, winning 67 of the 70 seats, and is targeting a clean sweep this time.

Arvind Kejriwal is banking on a plethora of populist measures, including free Wi-Fi and electricity and water subsidies, to retain power in the national capital. The AAP is also hoping that its work in transforming government schools - state-run schools in Delhi have been ranked among the best in the country in the past year - and improving healthcare access will convince people to vote for them.

Previously, Arvind Kejriwal declared a "10-point guarantee card" that promised free power, 24-hour drinking water on tap and a world-class education to every child.

In opposition, the BJP has both condemned and sought to top Mr Kejriwal's "guarantees", with Delhi East Lok Sabha MP Gautam Gambhir claiming freebies could lead to people taking them for granted and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari - with whom Mr Kejriwal sparred earlier this week - claiming his party would offer "five times more" if it came to power.
