"The day AAP formed the government with Congress help (in Delhi), they have lost their moral compass and therefore they don't have any right to raise fingers against others," he told reporters at ‘Chaaiwala my PM’ campaign in Bangalore. (Agencies)
The statewide campaign is on to counter ‘tea vendor’ jibe at Narendra Modi by Congress MP Mani Shankar Aiyar
"People are laughing at them. It is nothing but cheap publicity and people will not believe it. Is he (Kejriwal) the Supreme Court of India? What moral authority he has got. He is a Chief Minister courtesy the most corrupt Congress according to him. People will decide who is what," Venkaiah Naidu said.
The senior BJP leader also said that the people will ‘shatter dreams’ of Congress to return to power at the centre with the help of AAP.
"Congress is adopting two-pronged strategy to support AAP. They all know they will go to jail if BJP comes to power and think they can divide BJP votes by pushing AAP in the forefront, but people are wise and I believe BJP will gain majority," he said.
Naidu said that even if the BJP wins majority seats, it will not forsake NDA partners. "We will walk with them hand-in-hand even if the BJP gains majority seats," he added.
He said that BJP has become stronger after BS Yeddyurappa's return to the party in the state.
On Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's initiative to cobble up third front, Naidu said that the people are aspiring for a stable government at the Centre, something which the previous third front governments failed to provide.
"People have witnessed the governments led by HD Deve Gowda, IK Gujaral, VP Singh and Chandra Shekhar, who failed to give stable governments. People are wise now," he said.
In fact, there are four ‘third fronts’ emerging under the leadership of Nitish Kumar, J Jayalalithaa, Mulayam Singh and Mamata Banerjee, Naidu said.
Naidu said that the Congress is not projecting Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate because of the ‘fear of people rejecting him’.
"The faces of Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi are missing in the ad campaign. Why? Has the Congress has lost confidence in them? I would like to ask the Congress," Naidu said.
On Kejriwal's allegations that BJP and Congress are spending crores of rupees to build brand name in the run-up to elections, Naidu said that the Election Commission should peg the ruling party from spending government money which is not good.
Naidu also said that South India should not lag behind but rally behind Narendra Modi to make him Prime Minister. "There is a Modi wave in the country and people should not lag behind but participate in making him the Prime Minister," he said.
