Who becomes the PM is not an important issue: Kejriwal

January 03, 2014 22:29 IST

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that the issue of who will become the prime minister of India after the 2014 Lok Sabha polls was not important.

"It does not matter whether Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi becomes the PM. The people are fed up with corruption and price rise," Kejriwal told reporters.

"They (BJP and Congress) only discuss who will become the prime minister. Cylinder prices have been hiked. How will the common man afford this? They don't discuss these issues," he said.

His aide and senior party leader Prashant Bhushan slammed both Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Modi.

Reacting to Dr Singh's press conference, Bhushan said, “I don't think history is going to be kind to this prime minister, who has allowed every kind of corruption to not only continue, but to proliferate during his government," he said.

In the same breadth, the senior advocate added that he agreed with the PM that Modi will be disastrous for the country.

"I agree with him on one thing -- that Narendra Modi will be extremely dangerous for his country. Apart from being communal and a fascist, Modi has shown that he is equally corrupt," he said.
