He added,”Our only aim is to stop Modi and Shah from coming back to power. We will support anyone other than the duo.” Kejriwal also showered praise on former PM Manmohan Singh saying the latter was a thousand times better than Modi.
On Wednesday, Kejriwal had attacked Gandhi siblings saying Priyanka and Rahul should focus their election campaign in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh instead of ‘wasting time’ in Delhi.
“Priyanka Gandhi should not waste her time in Delhi. The Congress will lose its deposit here. Instead, she should campaign in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh where the fight is between the Congress and BJP,”Delhi CM had said
He had also claimed that they (Rahul and Priyanka) were not going to places where the Congress was in a direct fight with the BJP.
Earlier in the day, while taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Kejriwal also predicted that BJP president Amit Shah would become the Union home minister if the BJP retains power on May 23.
“Countrymen, think during casting your vote. If Narendra Modi comes back to power then Amit Shah will be the Union home minister. What will happen to a country who has Shah as the home minister. So think about that before voting,” Kejriwal tweeted.
