Just two days ahead of MCD elections, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal attacked the BJP, saying it has become synonymous with chikungunya, malaria, dengue and garbage. He added that people of Delhi would be risking their children's lives if they voted for the BJP.

If someone in your home falls ill then you are responsible because you voted for the party which is synonymous with chikungunya, malaria, dengue and garbage.

But Kejriwal’s exact words in September 2016 were, “The mosquito doesn’t know if a person is from the Congress or the BJP. We need to keep politics aside and fix this problem. It’s time we all solve this together. Delhi government, MCD and Central government need to work together.”

Sounds contradictory, doesn’t it? So Mr Kejriwal, who is making a political issue out of dengue and chikungunya?
