"If you make me, then I will become (Prime Minister)," he quipped to requests for comments on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s dare to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to replace Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate with Parrikar.

"But the BJP will have to tell me," Parrikar told reporters on the sidelines of a cabinet briefing at the state secretariat.

AAP's Goa spokesperson Dinesh Waghela said on Monday that if BJP values simplicity, then it should drop Modi and select Parrikar as its prime ministerial candidate.

Equating the AAP with a roadside entity, Parrikar said that one should not listen to every bit of advice thrown at you.

"Someone from the road comes and tells you what to do in the kitchen, will you listen to them?" he asked.
