"Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's move to keep people away from the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana due to political selfishness and hatred is sad and condemnable. Poor people will not be able to take benefit of this due to AAP's narrow mentality. You have to answer people for this kind of politics," Shah tweeted.

Kejriwal claimed that Ayushman Bharat, the healthcare scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, is a public relation exercise which will prove to be another "jumla (rhetoric). The AAP termed the scheme "another white elephant in the making" and alleged that it covers only six lakh out of 50 lakh families in Delhi.
