Taking to Twitter, he stated that while CM Kejriwal has claimed that they are feeding around four lakh people in the national capital amid the national lockdown, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has claimed that they are feeding around 20 lakh people.

Not one Delhi govt food delivery van spotted on streets. Perhaps they cook on Twitter, deliver too!
