‘Take care of your country’: Arvind Kejriwal responds to Pakistan MP Fawad Chaudhry comments on LS elections | India News

NEW DELHI: Coming down heavily on a Pakistani lawmaker‘s comments on Lok Sabha elections, Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday responded strongly and said that India was fully capable of solving its own problems and that the Pakistani leader’s tweet of support was not needed.

Earlier in the day, former Pakistan minister replied to Arvind Kejriwal‘s post on X on voting with his family, and said, “May peace and harmony defeat forces of hate and extremism.”

In a response to the Pakistan lawmaker, Kejriwal said, “Chaudhary Sahib, I and the people of my country are fully capable of handling our issues.Your tweet is not needed. The situation in Pakistan is very bad right now. You take care of your country,”
“The elections taking place in India are our internal matter. India will not tolerate interference from the biggest sponsors of terrorism,” he added.
Posting a picture of his family after exercising his franchise, the Delhi chief minister had written: “I voted today with my father, wife and children. My mother is very ill. She could not go. I voted against dictatorship, unemployment and inflation. You too must go and vote.”
Notably, this is not the first time the Pakistani minister Fawad Chaudhry has come out in support of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who cast his vote along with family on Saturday. Chaudhry had also supported Kejriwal after he received bail in the money laundering case linked to alleged liquor excise policy.
