"AAP shamelessly using Namo's picture on its website as a crutch to sell itself. Sad really," said a tweet. "Aaj 'Hail Modi' & before Gen Elections it was 'Jail Modi'", said another.

AAP later removed the image from the homepage of its website but hundreds of people criticized the Arvind Kejriwal party for putting the banner on party's website.

"I'm willing to bet almost anything that #AAP will claim its website was hacked," a third tweet said.

Meanwhile, the party has still not reacted over the issue but removed the banner from its website. The AAP even had a
statement on the site, which was also removed along with the image.

The statement said, "The voters in Delhi have decided. They want a strong Prime Minister which is why they elected Narendra Modi. They now want a strong Chief Minister so that issues like corruption, inflation, better schools, transport and hospitals could be resolved. They want Arvind Kejriwal again."

The Union Cabinet has dissolved the Delhi Assembly and elections in the national capital is likely to take place in the early part of next year.

During last Assembly polls in Delhi, AAP contested election presenting it as a Modi vs Kejriwal. AAP performed magnificently in its debut elections but failed to repeat the performance of Delhi polls in Lok Sabha elections though it has managed to win 4 seats all from Punjab. Kejriwal himself lost badly against Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Varanasi.

Keeping in view the ensuing Assembly elections in Delhi, the AAP is again trying to make it Modi vs Kejriwal contest to bag majority in national capital.
