Indian prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a direct attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, calling him one of the three ‘AKs’ popular in Pakistan.
The BJP leader said the other two ‘AKs’ were the assault rifle AK-47 and Indian Defence Minister AK Antony.
“There are three people who are being praised in Pakistan – they are three AKs. The first one is AK-47 that is used to spill the blood of innocents. The second is Defence Minister of India, AK Antony, who had said that those who beheaded the Indian soldiers were terrorists in Pakistan Army uniforms. And the third is AK-49,” Indian media quoted Modi as saying at a large rally in India-held Jammu and Kashmir.
“This AK-49 just gave birth to a new party and on his party’s official website, the map shows Kashmir is given to Pakistan and one his most trusted aides has favoured plebiscite in Kashmir….Pakistan’s papers are full of praise for them. They are enemies of the country. They speak in favour of Pakistan,” he added in an apparent reference to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal.
Kejriwal resigned after 49 days as chief minister in Delhi state.
