Responding to Bhartiya Janta Party chief Amit Shah comments that Aam Aadmi Party has done nothing in last 4 years, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal challenged Shah on Sunday to debate on the development done by Delhi government and by Prime Minister Modi led-government in the last 4 years.

Kejriwal said, "I challenge BJP president Amit Shah for a public debate at Ramlila Maidan on the performance of PM Modi Government vs Delhi Government in last 4 years."

Speaking on the Shah claim that Modi government allocated three times more money to Poorvanchal areas of India in the 14th Finance Commission, Kejriwal said, "Amit Shah, how much money did Modi Govt provide to Delhi in the 14th Finance Commission? Merely ₹325Cr? People of Poorvanchal reside in Delhi also."

"Why did your govt not provide money for their development? Why this discrimination against Poorvanchalis?” he added.
