Kejriwal questions BJP, Cong's relationship with Ambani, Adani

February 16, 2014 14:29 IST

Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday took a swipe at both the Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress, questioning their stand on gas pricing issue and their "relationship" with industrialists Mukesh Ambani and Adani.

In a series of messages on micro- blogging website Twitter, Kejriwal hit out at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Sunday morning.

"Modi should break his silence on gas pricing. Also, what is his relation and his party's relation with Mukesh Ambani and Adani?," he asked in one of the tweets.

Kejriwal said Modi should speak on the issue in his rally today. "Modi ji should speak on Mukesh Ambani and gas pricing in today's rally," he added in another tweet.

The AAP leader also questioned Gandhi's support to higher gas price allegedly favouring the Ambani's.

"Why Rahul supporting higher gas price for Mukesh Ambani? Is Congress Ambani's "dukaan"(shop), as claimed by him? Rahul should explain in today's rally" he tweeted.

The party has been attacking the two leaders over this issue ever since an FIR was registered by AAP led Delhi government against Mukesh Ambani and Union petroleum minister Veerappa Moily.

His party has been making the gas pricing as an issue ahead of 2014 General elections. "Would 2014 elections be fought between AAP and Mukesh Ambani, with Rahul and Modi being agents of Mukesh Ambani?," he tweeted.
