Justifies Delhi CM, after facing flak for hugging the RJD chief -- a convict in the fodder scam
New Delhi: The image of him embracing Lalu Prasad Yadav having gone viral, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal yesterday sought to defend his anti-graft credentials saying it was the RJD chief who ‘pulled and hugged him’, and it did not amount to an ‘alliance’.

Kejriwal said that AAP worked ‘against BJP’ during the Bihar assembly polls and supported the chief ministerial candidature of Nitish Kumar. He termed the JD(U) leader as a ‘good person’ and someone who has done ‘good work’. “I go to Rashtrapati Bhawan. All party leaders come there.
They meet us. During Nitish Kumar’s swearing in, Lalu Yadav was on the stage. He shook hands and pulled and hugged me. He held my hand and raised it. It was projected and questions were asked. We have not formed an alliance. We are against his record of corruption and we’ll always oppose it,” Kejriwal said.
