Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took a dig at Union Minister Mahesh Sharma over the expenditure incurred on his son’s marriage asking if he made all the payments by cheques.

However, Sharma hit back at Kejriwal asking him to get his facts right as it was his son’s marriage and not daughter’s as mentioned by the AAP leader in his tweet.

Linking the marriage to demonetisation, Kejriwal questioned the mode of payment and expenditure incurred on Sharma’s  “daughter’s” wedding.

Kejriwal tweeted, “Are all the payments for BJP MP Mahesh Sharma’s daughter’s wedding being done through cheque? Is Rs 2.5 lakh being spent for the wedding? How were notes exchanged?”

Sharma responded: “Please get your facts right. My son is getting married. Yes, all the payments are being done through banks.” Kejriwal had earlier demanded a probe into the lavish arrangements for former Karnataka Minister G Janardhan Reddy’s daughter’s marriage.
