The death of a girl child in Shakur Basti area of West Delhi during a demolition drive has once again brought the tussle between central government and Arvind Kejriwal led-AAP government in open. However, the blame game has also brough Delhi Chief Minister face to face with Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.
On Monday morning, Rahul Gandhi visited Shakur Basti slum area to express sympathy with the affected families. In his usual diatribe against opposition, Rahul put the blame of child’s death on both Central and Delhi government.

But moments later, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in a quirky tweet questioning the knowledge of Rahul Gandhi said “he’s still a child” as he doesn’t know Railways, responsible for demolition drive, comes under the jurisdiction of central government.
Here’s what Arvind Kejriwal tweeted:
राहुल गांधी जी अभी बच्चे हैं। उनकी पार्टी ने शायद उन्हें बताया नहीं की रेल्वे केंद्र सरकार के अंडर आती है, दिल्ली सरकार के नहीं। — Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 14, 2015
Delhi’s ruling AAP government on Sunday had also accused the Centre of “selective targeting” in carrying out anti-encroachment activities, and said “god will not forgive” those who have rendered “hundreds of people homeless” in biting cold.
Kejriwal, while slamming the railways, suspended two Sub-Divisional Magistrates and another senior official for “failing to arrange” food and shelter for those evicted.
