Kejriwal takes on Modi over gas pricing, again

Former Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday that he has raised 16 questions on development claims on Gujarat and wants to discuss all the issues with the state's Chief Minister and the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Kejriwal also raked up the gas pricing issue.

“Modi should make his point clear on the issue of gas pricing,” he said. “The Gujarat government has demanded that gas pricing should be $16 (per unit). Earlier, the UPA government had given a go-ahead to raise the price of gas from $4 to $8,” he said. 

“People say you have such close relations with Mukesh Ambani that you have made Ambani family’s son-in-law a minister,” alleged Kejriwal. 

Kejriwal, who later drove to the airport to go to Jaipur, complained that Modi has no time for a common man like him. He has not been answering questions except to make speeches in public. Kejriwal said Gujarat “has nothing but rampant corruption” and the voice of farmers was being suppressed. 

Meanwhile, a group of around 150-175 BJP members waved black flags and shouted anti-Kejriwal slogans at the spot where the former Delhi chief minister was waiting.
