Reacting strongly to Modi’s ‘AK49’ remarks against him, the AAP chief said it was unbecoming of a prime ministerial candidate to use such language.
Addressing a BJP meeting, Modi said: “Three AKs have emerged as a unique strength for Pakistan. One is AK-47 which has been used to cause bloodshed in Kashmir. The second is A K Antony, who informs Parliament that people wearing the dress of Pak army beheaded our soldiers while our Army says Pakistanis had come. Who do you want to benefit with your statement.”
Modi took a dig at Kejriwal, who resigned after 49 days as Chief Minister in Delhi, as the “Third AK which is AK-49 who has just given birth to a new party”.
“The map on his party’s website has shown Kashmir in Pakistan. A senior member of his party is shouting himself hoarse demanding plebiscite in Kashmir. Pakistan is dancing over their statements. These agents of Pakistan, enemy of India, you are speaking the language of Pakistan,” he said.

He was attacking Antony over his statement made in Parliament last year when Pakistani army men had intruded into Mendhar sector in Jammu and Kashmir and killed two Indian soldiers, beheading one of them.
Kejriwal reacted strongly against Modi as he said it was unbecoming of a prime ministerial candidate to use such language.
Interacting with reporters at Kardhana village in Varanasi, Kejriwal, who announced his candidature against Modi yesterday, said, “He (Modi) should talk on issues and not get into bad mouthing. Such words do not suit a man who is a prime ministerial candidate.”
Later, the AAP leader also tweeted hitting out at Modi saying, “He (Modi) will not respond on gas prices and false claims of Gujarat development. Why? He refuses to talk about farmer suicides in Gujarat…on his compulsions to keep corrupt people like Babubhai Bokharia and Puruahottam Solanki in his cabinet.
“He refuses to respond on his compulsions to give tickets to corrupt people like Yeddyurappa, Sriramlu n Ramvilas Paswan…He refuses to respond on his compulsions to give tickets to Muzaffarnagar riot accused. Why?” he asked.
