New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress’ Delhi Unit chief Sheila Dikshit on Saturday indulged into a banter on Twitter over the latter’s health. Taking to the micro-blogging site, Dikshit asked Kejriwal why he is spreading rumours about her health.
“Why are you spreading rumours about my health. If you have nothing to do, then come over and have food at my place. You can also see how my health is, have food and also learn to fight elections without spreading rumours,” she tweeted in Hindi.

Kejriwal promptly denied having said anything about her health.
“When did I say anything about your health? Never. My family has taught me to respect elders. I wish God gives you good health and a long life. When you were going abroad for treatment, I had come uninvited to your place to enquire about your health. When should I come to your place for having food?” he wrote back.
If reports are to be believed, Dikshit posted the tweet after learning that volunteers of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are spreading rumours in northeast Delhi that she is unable to actively take part in campaigning because of her health.
Dikshit is pitted against BJP’s sitting MP Manoj Tiwari and AAP’s Dilip Pandey from North East Delhi seat.
