Cong, BJP working as a team to help Ambani: Kejriwal

Launching a fresh salvo against BJP prime ministerial pick Narendra Modi and Congress chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal said that the standard of both parties had come so low that were colluding together to extend benefit to industrialist Mukesh Ambani.

Kejriwal said this at Jhajjar on Friday, after kicking off a three days' road show from a Jhajjar village.

Training guns at chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, he said, "Hooda is snatching farmers' land and giving it to UPA president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra and Ambani."

While seeking votes for party's Rohtak nominee Naveen Jaihind, Kejriwal said that it was him who had raised the voice against the fraud committed by Vadra and the chief minister.

Holding established parties - BJP and Congress - responsible for pathetic situation of farmers, he said that 25 farmers had committed suicide across the country in the past one month, but the so-called champions of farmers didn't mince a word on the issue. He said that both the political establishments' focus was on finding ways to extend benefits to industrialists.

Commenting on crucial election at Varanasi, where Kejriwal is facing Modi, he said, "Sinc Modi is contesting from two LS seats, it is clear that he is apprehensive about his fate from Varanasi." He said that neither in Gujarat, nor in Varanasi, there was no Modi wave and had there been one, Modi would have contested from Varanasi only.

Dubbing Naveen Jaihind as brave hearted as a lion, he said that while Congress nominee from Rohtak Deepender Hooda was seeking re election for power sake, Naveen jumped in the fray with the sole aim to serve the people. He termed BJP and Congress as two sides of one coin.

Kejriwal road show would reach Jind-Ambala-Yammunagar on Saturday and would culminate at Chandigarh on Sunday.
