Kejriwal hits back at Modi for ‘AK49’, ‘Pakistani agent’ jibe

Kejriwal says Modi should talk on issues and not get into bad mouthing

Varanasi: Hitting back at Narendra Modi for his ‘AK49’ and ‘Pakistani agent’ jibe at him, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal said such comments do not suit a prime ministerial candidate.

Interacting with reporters at Kardhana village here, Kejriwal, who announced his candidature against Modi on Tuesday, said, “He (Modi) should talk on issues and not get into bad mouthing. Such words do not suit a man who is a prime ministerial candidate."

Kejriwal said Modi did not even meet him when he wanted to talk about development in Gujarat.

Earlier addressing a rally in Jammu, Modi called defence minister A.K. Antony and Kejriwal “agents of Pakistan and enemy of India".

“Three AKs have emerged as a unique strength for Pakistan. One is AK-47 which has been used to cause bloodshed in Kashmir. The second is A.K. Antony, who informs Parliament that people wearing the dress of Pak army beheaded our soldiers while our Army says Pakistanis had come. Third AK which is AK49 who has just given birth to a new party," Modi said, in a reference to Kejriwal, who resigned after 49 days as chief minister of Delhi. PTI
