Accusing Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal of joining hands with “the most corrupt party in the world”, Baba Ramdev launched a frontal attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) here on Saturday, while simultaneously batting for the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Ramdev sought a clarification from AAP as to how it planned to protect the common man when it had joined hands with the Congress, because of which a particular family had always enjoyed a VIP status.

Drawing a parallel in the BJP, Ramdev asked why Kejriwal chose the Congress instead of Narendra Modi, who was born in a common family and had an “undisputed” track record, integrity and performance. “The country wants stable and matured leadership which can only be given by Modi.”

Ridiculing Congress leadership, Ramdev said, “Poor Rahul has nothing except his surname”. Ramdev also criticised Kejriwal for shying away from taking action against former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit.
