New Delhi, 2 April, Uday Pratap(IANS): Arvind Kejriwal will support Bjp, provided they do not increase the prices of the gas. Speaking at a rally in East Delhi’s Gandhi Nagar, Aam Aadmi Party convener said that he would ‘join’ BJP if Narendra Modi promises not to increase the gas prices.

Few days ago while addressing a rally in Chandigarh to garner support for his party candiate Gul Panag, Kejriwal had accused Narendra Modi claiming the BJP leader had written to the Centre recently requesting for a three-fold hike in gas prices to help industrialist Mukesh Ambani.
Kejriwal claimed he was in possession of a letter purportedly written by Modi recently to the Centre, asking for such a hike.
“The motive behind hike in prices of gas by three times was to extend benefit to Ambani as he owns wells of oil,” he said adding that “by hiking gas prices the cost of fertilisers too will increase and this will lead to inflation and ultimately Ambani will be benefited.”
Kejriwal took a dig at both BJP and Congress accusing them of working for Ambani.
“Both Modi and Rahul use aircraft of Ambani to travel… they extend benefits to Ambani,” he said. Sharpening his attack against Ambani, he claimed that the industrialist funded both Modi and Rahul during polls.
But close to party source says to news agency IANS that actually he was not said so, Kejriwal would die for his demand and aims but never join BJP.
