The BJP-AAP fight ahead of Delhi Assembly elections intensified after BJP MP Gautam Gambhir's dig at Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia asking if he was a 'Liquor Mafia or Education Minister' citing the number of liquor shops opened during the AAP government's tenure. 

Gautam Gambhir took to Twitter on Tuesday and slammed Manish Sisodia over AAP government's claim of bringing an "education revolution" in the national capital while stating that only one new school was opened in Delhi in the last five years, compared to 100 new liquor shops opened by the government.
