The BJP on Tuesday slammed the Delhi government's bid to clear Rs 3.42 crore bill related to a defamation case against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal even as the AAP government strongly defended the move.
Union ministers Prakash Javadekar and Kiren Rijiju hit out at Delhi government's bid to foot Kejriwal's legal bills calling it a "dacoity and loot" of the people's money.
"It's illegal and immoral. Why should the people of Delhi pay for your (Kejriwal) sins? This is a dacoity and loot of their money and is completely unacceptable," he said at a press conference.
