Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Naxal’ barb, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal today said such kind of language did not suit the Prime Minister.

Hitting back at Modi, who had said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had a mastery in governance, the AAP leader said his party knew the art of wiping out bribery from governance.

“The Prime Minister launched an attack on me in a rally, saying Arvind Kejriwal is a Naxal. Am I a Naxal? Do I need to go to forest?” the AAP leader said addressing a rally in Wazirpur Assembly Constituency here.

“But this does not suit the Prime Minister. Should the BJP do this (resort to such attacks)?” Kejriwal asked.

This is the first time Kejriwal has responded to the Naxal barb in a rally.

In an apparent reference to Kejriwal’s comment made almost a year back that he was an “anarchist”, Modi, in his rally on Saturday, said, “If somebody is an anarchist, he should go to the jungles and join the Naxals.”

Responding to Modi’s appeal to give the BJP a chance to rule Delhi since it was “good at running a government,” Kejriwal said, “We have art and technology to wipe out bribery from the system.”

Accusing the saffron party of demolishing slums while it was at the helm of affairs in Delhi for the last seven months, the AAP chief said it was the BJP’s ploy to grab the land of the poor and give it to big business houses.

“The BJP has demolished slums in Rangpuri, Wazirpur, Vasant Kunj and Okhla. Where will they go in such weather? The Prime Minister has assured slum-free Delhi. But what about those whose slums have been demolished? Should they wait for seven more years and sleep on the streets till they get pucca houses?

“The BJP wants to grab the land of the poor and wants to give it to the big business houses…Have some shame,” Kejriwal said.

Lashing out at the BJP for not fulfilling its promises, AAP chief said only his party possessed the capability of slashing the electricity fare and reducing corruption.

    Mr, Kejriwal Please keep you mouth shut. You had a opportunit in Delhi and you blew up. I think he does no have skill to plane and organize party. He should retire like Rahul and Sonia.

      It is Mr.AK called from his podium in Delhi during his hartal that "Yes, I am an anarchist". Mr.Modi just reminded New Delhi about the proclamation made by AK. AK and AAP does not have the guts to face the truth when they themselves look down at the wrong side of the barrel. So AK and AAP's, being Ostriches burying their head into deep sand not prepared to face the truth, blaming falsely Mr.Modi with the pretext that personal attacks are being carried out by Modi. For a change, Mr.AK please tell New Delhi & Nation, "Yes I called myself an anarchist and I apologise for that and I would not do so in future". Everyone wants to have a CM to solve the peoples problems. None needs a CM, who will go on hartal and give new problems to citizens.
