‘Never ever’ said preferred Narendra Modi over Mayawati: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi | Published:March 13, 2014 2:50 pm

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday clarified that he had “never ever” said he would prefer Narendra Modi over BSP chief Mayawati as his choice for Prime Minister.

“TV channels pe chal raha hai – ‘Kejriwal ne kaha ki Modi aur Mayawati ke beech main Modi ko prefer karunga (It’s on TV channels that ‘Kejriwal said he would prefer Modi if he had to choose between [the BJP leader] and Mayawati)’. I never ever said that,” Kejriwal wrote in a post on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The tweet was in response to a media report which claimed that if someone were to hold a gun to his head and ask him to choose between Modi and Mayawati, Kejriwal would choose the former.

The AAP leader is presently in Maharashtra to campaign for the party ahead of Lok Sabha elections.

After his resignation as Delhi Chief Minister, Kejriwal and his party have launched scathing attacks on BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Modi and his “development model” in Gujarat.

Along with party leaders, he even made a tour last week of Gujarat with the stated objective of verifying Chief Minister Modi’s claims.

      We understand, Arvind. Due to your political compulsions, you cannot praise Modi directly. You have no option but to deny what you said. We understand. Its okay. We know how you feel inside now though :))

          Would Kejriwal ally with BJP if it promise to support his Jan Lok Pal Bill?

            Kejriwal why should one believe you whether you said it or not. The promises you made to the people of Delhi are already forgotten to you. Now do you remember Sheila Dik?

              It is preposterous to think that Kejriwal would be threatened by a Gun on his head. India is a democracy and it is for the voter to decide who to vote and elect.

                      It looks like that Arvind is making all sorts of alegations and baseless remarks against every person or organizations or media print and electronic to boost his image.

                        Modi is disastrous for the country so its better for us to keep him away from centre.. Kejriwal has made his image of an anarchy and a trouble maker.we want a stable govt which none of them is able to provide. We can only consider Congress as the hope.

                          Modi is already known as Hitler or dictator.. he is definitely non-fit for our country.if this happens then modi for sure is going to divide the country on the basis of community..he is a non-secular person which is not good for our country.on the other hand kejriwal is a escapee. he ran in just 49 days without fulfilling his promises.only one party has done something for us and for the development of the nation and thus they only deserves to be in consution...

                            Modi and Kejriwal both very well knows the art of manition, they always manite people about UPA government achievement in their 10 years rule, but we all know 10 years of UPA are consider as golden past of UPA. People will bring UPA again to continue the process of development.
