After AAP's trick of 'Modi for PM, Arvind for CM' backfires, party now blames an outsider.
New Delhi, Nov 8: Aam Aadmi Party found itself on a sticky wicket on Friday after party's official website showed party chief Arvind Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi together on its banner with the slogan 'Delhi Speaks - Modi for PM Arvind for CM.'

With the banner and the slogan also came a video, allegedly prepared by the party ahead of Delhi polls showing people in Delhi wanted Modi for PM and now they want to Kejriwal as Delhi's next chief minister.

An article published in NitiCentral said, "But now, a failed Arvind Kejriwal is using development mascot Prime Minister Narendra Modi's good name to win the upcoming election in Delhi. This is the same Narendra Modi whom the AAP chief and his party unfairly targeted time and again on several occasions to score brownie points."

With such a banner on AAP's website it clearly indicates that even Aam Aadmi Party is trying to woo voters in the name of Narendra Modi and is banking on his name to regain lost grounds in Delhi.

The banner which was taken off within a short span of time still many saw it and targeted AAP for using Narendra Modi's name to bolster its prospects.

As per an NDTV report, "Hours before the phrase appeared on AAP's website, Kejriwal said, "People I meet in Delhi are saying Modi for PM, Kejriwal for Chief Minister."

But the party claims the appearance of banner on the website was a "mischief" by an outsider.

"It looks like some mischief; someone intruded our website, we are investigating the matter," AAP leader Ashutosh was quoted as saying in NDTV report.

The battle, he added, "is between (BJP's) Jagdish Mukhi and Kejriwal, not Modi and Kejriwal."
