Kejriwal launches road rallies, attacks Cong, BJP

If the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate is not afraid of AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, let him be clear from where he plans to contest the election against our leader, the party’s national spokesperson Sanjay Singh said here.

‘Earlier, BJP was giving indications that Modi will contest from Varanasi and then Arvind Kejriwal announced he might contest from the same seat,’ said Singh. ‘Is BJP scared of AAP? If that is not the case, then Modi should make his stand clear from where he would be contesting. We will decide our strategy based on that,’ he said when asked if Kejriwal will take on Modi in Gujarat. ‘AAP has finalised its candidates from Gujarat and their names will be announced shortly,’ he told. On the fledgling outfit’s future strategy, Singh said, ‘We will go to each and every state. We will visit Punjab, Bihar, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh in coming days.’ The AAP spokesman slammed the Modi government for the attacks on vehicles of Kejriwal and another party leader Manish Sisodia during their Gujarat visit. ‘People know on whose behest these attacks were carried out. There were loopholes in security.’

He sidestepped a query related to Kejriwal travelling by a chartered plane from Jaipur to Delhi, saying, ‘Ask the media group (which bore the cost of chartered aircraft).’

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal returned from Delhi to address a public rally at Bapunagar area of the city. Kejriwal, who is touring Gujarat to ‘verify’ claims of development under Modi, visited the Sabarmati Ashram, which is closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi.
