Kicking off the Aam Aadmi Party's Lok Sabha campaign in Haryana on Sunday, Arvind Kejriwal launched a blistering attack on both the BJP and Congress, calling Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi agents of Mukesh Ambani. “Mukesh Ambani has Modi in one pocket and Rahul in the other... whoever is in power, Modi or Rahul, it’s Ambani who will run this country. We have to stop the rule of Ambani, which is like the East India Company,” he said.

Raking up the gas pricing controversy, the AAP chief said, “I have written to both (Modi and Rahul) and asked them how much they will pay Ambani if their government comes to power, but they have not replied.”

Here are four questions Kejriwal posed to Gandhi in his letter:

1) Do you support the decision to pay Mukesh Ambani's company $8 per unit for gas? If not, will you tell the government to scrap this deal?

2) What relation do you and your party have with (Mukesh) Ambani?

3) How much money is being spent on your election campaign and what is the source of the money?

4) Will you give (M Veerappa) Moily a Lok Sabha ticket? Several Congress ministers such as Salman Khurshid, Kamal Nath, Sharad Pawar, P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, etc., have faced charges of corruption in the past. Will you give tickets to all of them?
