Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal indulged in a Twitter spat on Monday over the lockdown management of their respective evening governments during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taking to Twitter, Yogi Adityanath tweeted, “Listen Kejriwal, you forced the workers of UP to leave Delhi when the entire humanity was groaning due to the pain of corona. Your government did an undemocratic and inhuman act like leaving even small children and women helpless on the UP border in the middle of the night. Should we call you a traitor of humanity or…”

Calling Kejriwal a “liar”, Yogi Adityanath further said, “The electricity-water connection was cut and the sleeping people were picked up and sent to the UP border by buses. Announcement was made that buses are going for Anand Vihar, beyond that buses will be available for UP-Bihar. The UP government arranged buses for the migrant laborers and brought them back safely.”

Reacting to this, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Listen Yogi, you just let it be. Just like the dead bodies of the people of UP were floating in the river and you were giving advertisements of your false applause in Times magazine by spending crores of rupees . I have never seen such a heartless and cruel ruler like you.”

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha called out the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi for its management of Covid-19 pandemic and migrants during the lockdown in the national capital.
