Varanasi, April 23 (IANS) AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday attacked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and wondered from where the money was coming for their advertisements.
The former Delhi chief minister held a roadshow here before filing his nomination papers.
“I am going to file my nomination in this worn out vehicle but Modi will come tomorrow (Thursday) in his helicopter. So people of Kashi should also not get fooled like the people in Amethi has been fooled for many years now,” Kejriwal told his supporters who were accompanying him to the collectors office.
Rahul Gandhi is contesting from Amethi constituency.
Questioning the two leaders on the money they were spending during the general election, Kejriwal alleged that these two leaders were taking money from the corporates.
“I do not have money to fight election. I just have Rs.500 in my pocket. But see such big hoardings of Modi are hanging in Varanasi, where is the money coming from? Narendra Modi has spent Rs.5,000 crore and Rahul Gandhi has spent Rs.1,000 crore in advertisements, where does all this money come from,” he questioned.
He also said that the people of Varanasi now want a candidate with whom they can share their problems.
“This time the people have to end the politics run by corporate giants and establish government of the people. We do not have money but we are walking in the path of truth that is why god is with us,” he said.
Kejriwal is contesting against the BJP’s Narendra Modi and Congress leader Ajay Rai.
Varanasi goes to the polls May 12 on the last day of the 10-phased ballotting that began April 7. The results will be declared May 16.
