When asked why Modi had branded him ‘a Pakistani agent’ and called him ‘AK-49’, Kejriwal said, “Why doesn't Modi talk about issues I have raised instead of calling me a Pakistani agent?"

“If there is indeed a Modi wave, why is he contesting the election from two places? Why is he having a 'safe seat' too? Why not contest from Varanasi alone?” he added.

Kejriwal, who began a week-long campaign for the Lok Sabha polls in the national capital on Tuesday, also lashed out at Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

When asked to comment on Sonia Gandhi’s remark that ‘running a government is not a child's play’, Kejriwal said the comment was meant for her son and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

"Rahul Gandhi is a young man. She should not be saying such things," he said.

Speaking at a rally in Delhi's Karol Bagh area on March 30, the Congress president was critical of AAP government’s 49-day stint in office in Delhi.

 “Some people believed that running government is a child's play. You have seen how they have run away from Delhi,” she said.

Kejriwal is expected to campaign extensively for a week in Delhi, which will see polling on April 10.
