The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday dared BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to fight Lok Sabha elections against either Congress president Sonia Gandhi or vice-president Rahul Gandhi.


When asked from where party leader Arvind Kejriwal will contest the Lok Sabha polls and whether he will contest against Modi, AAP leader Sanjay Singh countered, “First let Modi announce that he is going to fight Lok Sabha polls.”

“Modiji keeps talking about shehzada (reference to Rahul Gandhi). He has been lashing out on dynastic politics. If that is the case, the AAP will want that Modi should fight directly against either Soniaji or Rahul Gandhi,” Singh told reporters.

Singh, however, did not answer questions about Kejriwal’s possible LS candidature and his possible seat.

The party has already declared that Kejriwal will be the party’s face for the Lok Sabha polls, irrespective of whether he himself contests the election.
