Kicking off his two-day Haryana roadshow here, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal today slammed the Congress and BJP, saying gas prices will "increase manifold" if the two parties come to power.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader, who was shown black flags by some local residents as he launched his tour this morning, said, "Centre should not be allowed to increase gas price from April 1. There are some media reports that EC has taken cognizance of my complaints for which I am very thankful. I hope EC would not allow Centre to increase gas price".

The Aam Aadmi Party leader had termed the Centre's decision to increase the price of natural gas from April 1 as a clear violation of the model code of conduct and had written to Chief Election Commissioner V Sampath about it.

"The people of this country should decide themselves as to whom they would vote for in Lok Sabha elections. If UPA or BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi comes to power, the gas price would increase manifold. And, this is only doing to benefit Mukesh Ambani," he alleged.

"We will have to prevent Modi and Congress from coming to power if we have to make India a corruption-free country. Both have worked to 'rob' people of this country," he alleged.

Kejriwal claimed no development has been done in Gujarat by the Modi-led Government.

"I have gone there (Gujarat) and found no development. Modi is fooling people on the issue of development," Kejriwal claimed.

Kejriwal's roadshow will pass through different parts of Faridabad like Chandawali, Dayalpur, Chaynsa, Mohna and Alawalpur and end at Nuh tonight.

The roadshow is scheduled to enter Gurgaon, from where Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav is contesting elections, tomorrow afternoon and will continue through various areas.
