Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today dropped all pretense of treating Delhi's Lt Governor Najeeb Jung with any respect and fired a fresh salvo against him for not making public his association with Mukesh Ambani headed Reliance Industries (RIL).

Attacking Jung over the Reliance gas issue, party spokesperson Ashutosh said that Jung had worked with the "Ambanis" in the past and he should have posted these facts on his website.

"Lt Governor Jung had worked with Ambanis in London, in India, was part of his think tank. Why these facts are not posted on LG's official website!" he tweeted.

This is the third time since last week that AAP has hit out at the Lt Governor.

Incidentally, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in an interview last week, had said that he did not approve Ashutosh calling Lt Governor a "Congress agent".

"I think we should be careful with our words. There could be anguish in the minds of some of our party leaders, but whatever be the intensity of our anguish we should mind our words," he had said.

The journalist-turned-politician also attacked BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for keeping mum on the Reliance gas issue.

"Reliance (gas) issue proves to whom BJP, Modi and Jaitley are loyal to - to Mother India or Mukesh Ambani !!!" he tweeted.
