New Delhi: Amid reports that the Wharton School has invited Arvind Kejriwal as a replacement to Gujarat Chief Minister for a lecture, the AAP leader on Tuesday said his address at the US management college has "absolutely nothing to do" with the BJP leader.

The abrupt cancellation on Sunday of the invitation to Modi to speak via videoconference at annual Wharton India Economic Forum in Philadelphia came after a war of words between Modi supporters and detractors.

"I have not replaced anyone. They were in touch with me for 10-15 days. The decision to not invite Modi was taken one or two days back," he said. Kejriwal will deliver his lecture via videoconference March 23, the day he is set to sit on an indefinite hunger strike against rising power and water bills in Delhi.
