Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has received a cheque of Rs. 364 from Business man. Sumit Agrawal, who has owned a business in Vishakhapatnam was embarrsed by the dressing code of Arvind Kejriwal during his meet with French President Francois Hollande.
Kejriwal was spotted wearing sandals during a banquet at Rashtrapati Bhavan hosted in honour of French President Francois Hollande. So Sumit Agrwal sent him a cheque of Rs. 364 to buy a pair of formal shoes. As per Mr. Sumit, he has collected this amount through charity.
Sumit Agrawal, the Visakhapatnam businessman said Kejriwal was representing the country that day at Rashtrapati Bhavan, “not staging a dharna at an Aam Aadmi Party rally at Ramlila Maidan or Jantar Mantar.”
“Kejriwal was at the President’s dinner at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, not a friend’s birthday party in a restaurant in Hauz Khas. While dressing as per one’s convenience is a question of personal liberty, some places are above personal preferences…You’re a grown man. Please act according to the situation & dress for the occasion,” Agrawal writes.
He also writes “Sir, I know that this is a very small amount, but it is the result of the effort of an entire Sunday afternoon of hard work. I had initiated the collection with an initial contribution of Rs 49,”
He also requested CM to maintain dignity while meeting foreign delegates. He writes “Sir, certain protocols have dictated our democratic set up & international relations since time immemorial. Though you (a self proclaimed proud anarchist) might have no regard for them, it is strongly recommended that you maintain dignity with foreign delegate”.
