And yes, your deputy Chief minister @msisodia an invitation has already been sent to Ji from Assam.”
आज आप असम आने की इच्छा जाहिर कर रहे हैं @ArvindKejriwal जी,
मुझे दुख और अफ़सोस है कि आपकी ऐसी इच्छा तब नहीं जागती है, जब हमारे असम के लोग बाढ़ जैसी भीषण प्राकृतिक आपदा से जूझ रहे होते हैं!
और हां, आपके उपमुख्यमंत्री @msisodia जी को तो असम से आमंत्रण भेजा ही जा चुका है।

Earlier in the morning, Sarma said that Kejriwal came to power in Delhi by promising to transform the national capital into London but has now started comparing the city with “small towns of Assam and Northeast”.
He further stated that BJP will make a city “the most prosperous city in the world” if the party gets the resources like the national capital.
In March 2017, Kejriwal had promised to transform Delhi into London if his party wins the MCD polls, but he had later clarified that he only meant ‘Delhi would be as clean as London’.
Taking to Twitter, the Assam CM stated in Hindi: “You got here to strength with a promise to make Delhi like London and Paris, do not you remember? @ArvindKejriwal Yes? If you couldn’t do anything, then began evaluating Delhi with the smaller towns of Assam and Northeast! Believe me, if BJP receives a town and sources like Delhi, then the party will make it the maximum wealthy town withinside the world.”
आप दिल्ली को लंदन और पेरिस जैसा बनाने के वादे के साथ सत्ता में आए थे, याद है न @ArvindKejriwal जी?
कुछ नहीं कर पाए तो #दिल्ली की तुलना असम व नॉर्थईस्ट के छोटे शहरों से करने लगे!
यकीन मानिए, दिल्ली जैसा शहर व संसाधन BJP को मिले, तो पार्टी उसे विश्व का सबसे समृद्ध शहर बनाएगी।

हमारे यहाँ कहावत है। कोई पूछे “मैं कब आऊँ” और आप कहें “कभी भी आ जाओ” इसका मतलब होता है “कभी मत आओ”।
मैंने आपसे पूछा “आपके सरकारी स्कूल देखने कब आऊँ” आपने बताया ही नहीं। बताइए कब आऊँ, तभी आ जाऊँगा। https://t.co/A7lbp1KVI6
