Salman Khurshid terms Arvind Kejriwal as runaway groom

Sunday, 16 February 2014 - 6:48pm IST | Agency: PTI

Taking a dig at Aam Aadmi Party, Union minister Salman Khurshid today said that Congress supported Arvind Kejriwal and gave him eight MLAs in "dowry" but what could be done if the "groom" fled away. "We have supported Kejriwal and gave him eight MLAs in dowry...What can we do if the 'dulha' (groom) fled away," the External Affairs Minister said here.

He dismissed the allegation that Congress collided with BJP against Kejriwal government in Delhi. "There is no understanding with BJP against Kejriwal...For protecting Constitution, all parties used to unite...," Khurshid told reporters in reply to a question.

When asked about the recent meeting of US Ambassador Nancy Powell and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Khurshid said it was a routine affair and he would not like to comment on it.

In reply to a question, Khurshid said that as India had become polio free country, those coming from outside (foreign countries) would have to take polio vaccine.
