NEW DELHI:After both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi attacked AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal for his agitationist style of governance, the former Delhi CM said he sat on dharnas for the people.

Addressing a rally in Delhi on Sunday,  Kejriwal responded to Modi’s attack on him. “I thought PM has come. He is a big leader. He will speak about big schemes. But he kept speaking against me,” Kejriwal said.

He questioned the NDA government’s claims of bringing down oil prices saying though prices of crude oil have plummeted in the international market, the government has not made corresponding cuts. Kejriwal cautioned people that the BJP would cut down on LPG subsidy.

Kejriwal attacked his main rival, the BJP, for failing to protect women.  While promising to install over 12 lakh CCTVs cameras, Kejriwal said the BJP wanted women to stay at home, so that they be safe. “One of their leaders said that women should bear four to five children, rape accused minister is campaigning in Delhi. This is their model of women security. We want men and women to have equal rights,” he said attacking the BJP.

Kejriwal, who resigned from CM’s post after being in power for 49 days, again apologised for his action.
