AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said if the people of Varanasi defeat Narendra Modi in the elections then no one will make him the next prime minister.

During an open interaction with the electorate in Varanasi, Kejriwal said, “If the people defeat Modi in Varanasi, then no one will make him the Prime Minister of the country… And moreover the BJP will also get finished.”

“Loser from Varanasi seat, Modi will not be made PM by anyone,” he repeated.

The AAP chief asked the people “if you Varanasi people make Modi win then what will you get, and if you make him lose from Varanasi then what will you get?”

“…just after the polls conclude on May 16, then the next day on 17th Modi will leave for Vadodara. And then just after one month he will vacate this seat and will go back to retain his Vadodara seat.

“And If you people make him lose from here then a ‘maha-kranti’ (massive revolution) will take place and the politics of honesty will resurrect from this Varanasi city,” he said.

“People are saying here that if Modi becomes Prime Minister then he will make a lot of development of the city… There have been many prime ministers in the country and had they carried out developments in their constituencies… I ask the people here if they (former PMs) could not do so, then will Modi do it?” he said.

“(Jawaharlal) Nehru became PM from Phoolpur and Allahabad constituencies, what developments had he done there… Charan Singh, Indra Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Atalji became PM, had they made developments in their constituencies, has Atalji made any development of Lucknow?” he asked.

Kejriwal asked the people not to get befooled by Modi.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader, accompanied by his family members, on Tuesday arrived in the holy city for a month-long campaign.

He also trained his guns on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

    Mr Kejrival you are just an upstart why did you have to file your nomination from Varanasi.The only reason i see is that you want publicity and some one is paying you to split the votes.

                Modi will develop entire India not just Varanasi which of course will definitely get a boost.

                    Having lived in Lucknow when Atalji was the PM and MP, I can attest to the fact that it was the best time for Lucknow. Kejriwal's only competence is making sweeping remarks dismissing everybody except himself. People might believe him till they do not find his utterings in conflict with facts that they personally know, but this schism would not last for long. I think everybody is recognizing his falsehoods slowly and that is why people dislike him so much. He is painting all things cherished and beautiful(which are not many in India) with his horrendously dark worldview, people will not forgive him.

Let us see after how many days he runs away.He will not last not even 49 days .He will use his position to create anarchy.This way you are clearing lot of cobwebs in mind of your supporters.
