Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today dubbed Arvind Kerjriwal as a "pawn" in the hands of Congress and slammed both the parties for indulging in "baseless insinuations" against its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Alleging a nexus between the two parties, party spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said Congress is afraid of facing elections and trying to field its "pawn" from Varanasi to take on Modi.

"Congress is trying to field its pawn from Varanasi to take on Modi according to its scripted plan. Congress is only interested in levelling baseless allegations against BJP through its pawn Arvind Kejriwal," he charged.

Arvind Kejriwal is expected to declare his candidature against Modi at a rally in Varanasi today.
