"Modi should learn austerity and humility from Kejriwal and Mamta who use Wagon R and Maruti Alto. Shouldn't NAMO be using NANO ?," Singh tweeted on a day Kejriwal government won the trust vote in Delhi Assembly with the support of Congress.

Singh, who had fired many barbs against Kejriwal and his team at the time of Anna Hazare's anti-corruption agitation, has been praising Kejriwal ever since the debutant's impressive show in Delhi polls.

AICC general secretary in-charge for Delhi, Shakeel Ahmed, dismissed contentions that Congress supported AAP to form the government in Delhi to halt Narendra Modi’s march.

"Wherever Modi went to campaign for the BJP in Delhi, the candidates of the Opposition party lost. We wish that Modi addresses more rallies in Delhi in coming elections causing greater losses to the BJP," he said.

Ahmed also congratulated AAP on winning the trust vote but reminded that Kejriwal will have to fulfill the promises that his party made to the people before polls.

"We have fulfilled our promise. All our eight MLAs have supported AAP to form a government. Now they have to fulfill promises that they have made to the people," he said.

To questions about whether Congress support to Kejriwal will continue even if AAP government starts acting against Congress leaders after probe in corruption cases, Ahmed reminded of the unequivocal support to Kejriwal's government announced by Delhi PCC chief Arvinder Singh Lovely, who was a minister in the Sheila Dikshit government.

"Our Chief Minister or ministers have done no such thing to fear anything. Neither media nor AAP should try to raise any such bogey... every new government talks about corruption in the previous government,” Ahmed said.

"Today if Kejriwal is talking about corruption during previous government. Any new government that comes to power in future could level similar allegations against Kejriwal's government. This goes on in politics," he added.
