BJP MP Anurag Thakur today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was maintaining "double standards" and there was underlying cronyism between the Arvind Kejriwal's outfit and the Congress.

Campaigning for BJP nominee from Chandigarh Kirron Kher, Thakur questioned why Kejriwal was only targeting Narendra Modi (BJP prime ministerial candidate) by standing against him in Varanasi.

"AAP claims to have come into being to fight corruption and its repeated assertions were to clean sweep the nation of the malaise, and yet Kejriwal did not file his nomination against (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi or (vice president) Rahul Gandhi who head the Congress party which is the fountainhead of sleaze and corruption," he said.

"This clearly shows a distinct difference between the spoken intent of fighting corruption and the demonstrated actualities of AAP," he said.

Thakur said that AAP was the B Team of Congress, and part and parcel of corrupt practices of the party which had been looting Indians for the past over half-a-century.

He said if BJP came to power it would focus on youth affairs and create jobs for youngsters.

"We must keep AAP and Congress at bay," he said.

"An education hub will be established in Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh by getting IIMs and IITs there. The party would make youth involved in India's growth story," he said.
