New Delhi, 13 March(IANS/UNI): AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday clarified that he had “never ever” said he would prefer Narendra Modi over BSP chief Mayawati as his choice for Prime Minister.
AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal Clarifies that Modi is Better Choice than Mayawati as PM
Kejriwal clarified that he had “never ever” said he would prefer Narendra Modi over BSP chief Mayawati as his choice for Prime Minister.
“TV channels pe chal raha hai – ‘Kejriwal ne kaha ki Modi aur Mayawati ke beech main Modi ko prefer karunga (It’s on TV channels that ‘Kejriwal said he would prefer Modi if he had to choose between [the BJP leader] and Mayawati)’. I never ever said that,” Kejriwal wrote in a post on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The tweet was in response to a media report which claimed that if someone were to hold a gun to his head and ask him to choose between Modi and Mayawati, Kejriwal would choose the former.
The AAP leader is presently in Maharashtra to campaign for the party ahead of Lok Sabha elections.
After his resignation as Delhi Chief Minister, Kejriwal and his party have launched scathing attacks on BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Modi and his “development model” in Gujarat.
Along with party leaders, he even made a tour last week of Gujarat with the stated objective of verifying Chief Minister Modi’s claims. [Input source: Indian Express]
