Arvind Kejriwal trolled on Twitter after labourers claim they didn't get Rs 350 promised for attending AAP rally in Haryana

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal found himself at the receiving end of criticism on social media after labourers and workers in Haryana alleged that they were not paid the promised amount of Rs 350 for appearing in a public rally organised by the Aam Aadmi Party in Hisar district on Monday.

ANI reported that labourers have claimed that the state party unit promised money to the labourers and workers if they appeared for the rally. They also claimed that the party had promised them food as well. However, they received neither despite attending the rally.

At the rally, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that his party would contest all 90 seats in the elections in Haryana, which are scheduled to be held in October 2018. According to NewsX, Kejriwal had also attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress, accusing former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and present chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar of only being interested in gathering votes, at his Haryana Bachao Rally in Hisar. He also vowed to implement the Swaminathan committee recommendations for the welfare and betterment of farmers.

The party came under fire for promising to pay workers to attend AAP's rally. Twitterati slammed the party and AAP supremo Kejriwal once the allegations surfaced, condemning the action while also grabbing the opportunity to mock the Delhi chief minister and react to the allegations with a bit of humour.
