Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday picked on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whom he has already dubbed “Mr Reliance”, while attacking Congress as he said “no Prime Minister has sold himself to a corporate house the way he has”.
“Congress was also in Reliance pocket. But they helped them secretly. Modiji proudly n brazenly announced it by modelling for Jio ad,” the CM said in a tweet.
Modi had to face jibes from the Opposition parties after his picture featured in full page Reliance Jio advertisments yesterday on the launch of its telecom service.
“PM knew people won’t like Reliance ad. Still he did. So, PM wants to say – ‘Yes, I am Reliance man n I don’t give a damn to what people think’,” Kejriwal said in another tweeted.
Kejriwal, who has been unsparing in his criticism of the Prime Minister, had yesterday mockingly advised him to keep modelling for the Mukesh Ambandi-led group.
“No PM in independent India sold himself so brazenly to a corporate house. After PM modelled for Reliance product, wud anyone have courage to take any action against Reliance in any case?” Kejriwal asked.
