"There are some who are questioning the BJP’s credentials. The Congress’ protector is questioning us," the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate had said earlier

Congress on Monday took potshots at Narendra Modi over his attack on the Aam Aadmi Party and asked whether the emergence of Arvind Kejriwal’s party has made the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate “nervous”.

“Modi’s criticism of Congress is understandable, but of late he has started criticising AAP too. Is he really nervous by AAP’s emergence?”, AICC General Secretary in-charge for Delhi, Shakeel Ahmad said on twitter.

In an apparent dig at AAP, Mr. Modi had on Sunday asked whether good can happen by constantly being on TV screens or through constructive vision on the ground.

“People must decide —— will good happen by constantly being on TV screens or through constructive and development—oriented vision on ground,” he had tweeted soon after addressing a rally in Goa.

“There are some who are questioning the BJP’s credentials. The Congress’ protector is questioning us,” Mr. Modi had said.

Earlier, AAP had questioned BJP’s credentiasl.

The war of words between BJP and AAP is growing amid realisation in the opposition party that Kejriwal’s entry could harm BJP’s interest much more than that of Congress in Lok Sabha polls.
