Here's how BJP MP Manish Sharma responded when Arvind Kejriwal asked whether he would spend just Rs 2.5 lakh on daughter's wedding

NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal attempted to attack BJP Parliamentarian Mahesh Sharma on Twitter, over demonetisation, but his bite turned out to be all bark as he got his facts wrong.

What happened was that the Aam Aadmi chief tweeted today saying Sharma's daughter is to be married soon. "Will he (Sharma) make all the payments (for the wedding) by check? Will he conduct the wedding in Rs 2.5 lakhs+ ? How did he get his cash exchanged?"

The reference was to the RBI rule -issued after the high-denomination currency ban+ - which says that people can withdraw only upto Rs 2.5 lakh in cash for the purpose of conducting weddings. And that too, only upon presentation of a wedding card, caterers' bills and similar proof. The Delhi CM was also referring to the difficulty people are having exchanging their old, banned notes for new ones, or even withdrawing cash.
