She tweeted: Hey brother Arvind Kejriwal, why are you spreading rumours about my health? If you don't have any work, come by for a meal. You can see my health, have a meal as well and learn to fight elections without spreading rumours.
Responding to her qualm, Kejriwal sounded puzzled over the allegation made on her. He further said that his family has taught him to respect the elderly, and then accepting her invitation asked her that when can he drop by for a meal at her place.
He said: When did I say anything about your health? Never. My family has taught me to respect the elders. May God give you a long and healthy life. When you were going abroad for your treatment, I came by your house without being invited. Tell me when should I come to your place for a meal?
