Attacking Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal here on Sunday said that both were in "the pockets of industrialist Mukesh Ambani".


Kejriwal, who was here to launch the rookie party's Lok Sabha campaign by holding a rally in the hometown of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, said: "Ambani ki ek jeb mein Modi hai, to doosri me Rahul Gadhi; wo dono ko paanch-paanch saal mein badalta rehta hain (Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi are in the pockets of Ambani; he runs the government by swapping them after every five years)".

Stepping up the attack on Modi and Rahul, Kejriwal said that Modi had claimed that he used to sell tea, but he must answer how could a tea-seller buy helicopters and fly from one place to another for covering his rallies. "I know Mukesh Ambani is providing helicopters to both Modi and Rahul, who would later get the cost recovered by raising the price of gas supplied in the country," he said.

Exhorting the public to question Modi, he said the Gujarat chief minister must explain his stand on black money and that if he becomes the Prime Minister, would he ensure bringing black money of Ambani brothers (Anil and Mukesh) from their Swiss bank accounts.
