Hitting out at the Aam Aadmi Party, Congress today alleged that Arvind Kejriwal was trying to divide its secular votes across the country to support BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

"In his recent letter to Modi, Kejriwal had asked around 16 questions pertaining to roads, education, health and development, but he didn't ask any question on 2002 Gujarat riot. This suggests that he was trying to divide Congress' secular votes in Delhi and other states," Congress MP Sandeep Dikshit told reporters here.

Dikshit, son of former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, said that though Kejriwal didn't ask any questions pertaining to 2002 riots, the first question from Congress to Modi is on that issue.

"We can talk about development later, but our first question to Modi is on 2002 Gujarat riot. Kejriwal, who claims to launch campaign against Modi, is targeting one particular

community to secure votes and supporting Modi. Seeing this, I will not get surprised if Kejriwal-led AAP merges with BJP in next two to three years," Dikshit said.

The Congress MP also alleged that Kejriwal wants that right-wing parties increase their strength. "If they (Kejriwal) got support of street vendors, they should openly have come out against FDI. Kejriwal changes his stand every time," he said.

Arvinder Singh Lovely, president of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC), also said that party would win all seven Lok Sabha seats in the national Capital.

Meanwhile, JDU leader Shoaib Danish, who is a councillor from Okhla, along with his supporters today joined Congress. After joining Congress, Danish said that since childhood, he was with Congress. "I am not new to Congress as since childhood, I have been Congressman," he said.
