The demand came a day after Modi praised Parrikar for his simplicity at a public rally in Panaji. "If the BJP has the guts and believes in simplicity, then they should replace Modi with Parrikar as their candidate for PM," AAP spokesperson Dinesh Waghela said.

Earlier on Sunday, Modi criticized AAP, asking whether good can happen by constantly being on TV screens or through constructive vision on the ground. "People must decide. Will good happen by constantly being on TV screens or through constructive and development-oriented vision on ground," he tweeted soon after addressing a rally in Goa.

He also took a veiled dig at the 'lack of experience' of the AAP functionaries, saying, “The country needs people who have experience to take it forward and we are determined to do that."

Citing his personal experience of contesting elections in Gujarat, he said, "I have been serving Gujarat for 12 years. On TV screens and pages of newspapers, I have always lost and could never win them over. But I have never lost in people's hearts."
