Arvind Kejriwal hopes to win 100 seats in 2014 Lok Sabha polls
Sunday March 2, 2014 11:01 PM, IANS

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal asserted Sunday that his year-old party will win around 100 seats in the Lok Sabha election and its support will be indispensable in government formation.

"The AAP will win at least 100 seats. Moreover, we are going to get more seats than the Congress," the former Delhi chief minister told an election rally here.

"At least, no government will be formed without the AAP's support," he said, looking confident.

Kejriwal also questioned Gujarat's model of development and its Chief Minister Narendra Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate.

"We have heard a lot about the supposed development of Gujarat. We will visit Gujarat from March 5 to 8 to see the development claimed there," he said.

"I want to learn about the development. But if there is no development, then it should be exposed."

He accused all political parties of dividing people on religious lines to seek votes and blamed politicians for recurring communal violence in the country.

"All the riots are engineered by politicians but Muslims go and sit on the laps of the Samajwadi Party and hold the hands of the Congress while Hindus go to the BJP.

"This time, don't get trapped by them," he said, looking at the crowds.

Kejriwal was harsh on Modi, who addressed an election rally earlier Sunday in Lucknow.

"It is said he (Modi) was a tea seller. How come a tea seller has helicopters to travel?

"Have you ever heard of Modiji speak against (Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law) Robert Vadra? Is there a 'setting' with Vadra?" he asked, pointing out that it was he who had exposed Vadra's dubious land dealings in Haryana.

Kejriwal said the BJP and the Congress joined hands to challenge a first information report his AAP government in Delhi had filed against industrialist Mukesh Ambani.

The AAP leader also listed the achievements of his 49-day-old government in Delhi that was formed Dec 28 but collapsed Feb 14.
