AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal will also send a letter to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on the gas pricing issue. AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal will also send a letter to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on the gas pricing issue.

Days after resigning as the Chief Minister of Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Friday continued to hit out at Reliance Industries Limited chairman Mukesh Ambani over the KG Basin gas pricing issue.

Addressing a press conference in the national capital, Kejriwal asked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to clarify its stand on the gas pricing issue. He further said that he had also written a letter to BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi seeking his stand on the issue.

“You are a Prime Ministerial candidate, but why are you still quiet over the issue. A common man wants to know whether if your party forms government and you become the Prime Minister, would you bring down the gas price from 8 dollar per unit to 4 dollar?” said the letter, which Kejriwal read out to the media in a press conference.

“This creates suspicion over your relations with Mukesh Ambani. What is your relation with Mukesh Ambani?” the letter added.

Kejriwal also said that he would issue several copies of his letter to Modi for public view. The AAP leader will also send a letter to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on the same.

He asserted that his party would not accept any donation from Mukesh Ambani for election funds.

Kejriwal alleged that the UPA government is being run by Mukesh Ambani and if Modi comes to power, would his government be also run by the Reliance Industries Chairman? he asked.

“You in your speeches talk about bringing back the money from Swiss banks, but the Ambani brothers have money in these banks. If you have good relations with the Ambanis and if they fund you, then would you bring back the black money,” he said.

The former Delhi Chief Minister questioned the election funding of the BJP and the Congress.

“Helicopters and private jets are being used whenever you and Rahul Gandhi travel within the country and abroad. As per the news reports, the aircraft services you and Rahul Gandhi use are free of cost. Spending in your election rallies are worth crores of rupees. Some people say Mukesh Ambani funds you. Is that true?” he said.

    Mr AK is of sound mind and responsible character who has public interest at his heart. Its about right time for Mr AK to run for PM position of the nation because the india needs a fresh restart from the monopoly of two parties politics and ´the bygone dynastic leadership.

He can’t be trusted . He isanarchist and dictator atude will make more harm to the nation than Good ,What ever Fame he is got it is just due to bias reporting from some media Houses....Useyour Discrimnation & Vote,Dont be prey of emotional Drama & Bias mediareporting, And of course If you want to see UPA back , Please vote for AAP,Bcoz It is not possible for AAP anytime in future to form a govt at centrewithout Congress or UPA support . Also AAP Tickets are only to those who arebig Big Shots whom everybody knows ,than where is AAM ,And Since Arvind is giving ticket to them, It means they rHonest , field experience & commitment not required

                  Arvind proved himself to be a non performer. He only concentrated on dharna strategy. He only acted as a crusader and a confrontationist.It would have been better had he taken action on the promises he had made. He should have sta and taken action against Mukesh Ambani.
