Stop badmouthing me, Mr Modi, says Arvind Kejriwal on ‘AK49′ remark
New Delhi: Reacting strongly to Narendra Modi’s ‘AK49’ remarks against him, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that it was unbecoming of a PM candidate to use such language and asked the BJP leader the rationale behind giving tickets to leaders accused of instigating riots.
Interacting with reporters at Kardhana village in Varanasi, Mr Kejriwal, said, “Mr Modi should talk on issues and not get into badmouthing. Such words do not suit a man who is a PM candidate.”
Later, the AAP leader also tweeted hitting out at Modi saying, “He will not respond on gas prices and false claims on Gujarat development. Why? He refuses to talk about farmer suicides in Gujarat on his compulsions to keep corrupt people like Babubhai Bokharia and Puruahottam Solanki in his Cabinet.”
At a meeting with BJP workers in Jammu yesterday, Narendra Modi had said Pakistan “admires 3 AKs — AK47, AK Antony and AK49″. The AK49 was areference to Arvind Kejriwal and the 49 days he had spent in office as Delhi chief minister. Modi said Pakistan was jumping with joy at Kejriwal’s colleague’s (Prashant Bhushan) statement some months ago that there should be a referendum in Kashmir to decide its fate.
The AAP leader has challenged Narendra Modi in Varanasi.
