"Presidential, Maharaja, Imperial suites, which cost around Rs 2-3 lakh per night, were booked for Delhi chief minister," claimed BJP leader Shazia Ilmi.  "In Punjab, they have the AAP government, so they can stay in the state guest house but he (Kejriwal) stayed in five-star hotels," she added.

Commenting on Congress' announcement that its Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will be cut short in Uttar Pradesh in view of board exams, Ilmi said, "If you talk about Nyay Yatra, how impactful has it been? Even the Congress' allies are leaving them one by one." The Congress party has decided to reschedule the Uttar Pradesh leg of Bharat Jodo Nyay yatra citing the Uttar Pradesh Board examinations.
