Mumbai: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray Monday said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has "forfeited the moral right to speak against corruption" after taking Congress support to form a government.

"In the Delhi assembly, Kejriwal has taken the support of the corrupt Congress to win the vote of confidence. If he now talks about sweeping out corruption with his 'broom' (Aam Aadmi Party symbol), he would be considered a hypocrite," Thackeray said.

In a stinging editorial in the party mouthpiece 'Dopahar Ka Saamana', Thackeray said Kejriwal had issued "a certificate of honesty" to Delhi BJP leader Harsh Vardhan, now the opposition leader.

"During the debate on the vote of confidence, Vardhan exposed the veil of honesty of Kejriwal and Co and explained in detail how the AAP chief and his supporters are fooling the people," Thackeray said.
