Advani, during an explosive interview with the Indian Express, called AAP a party of agitators unfit to run a government.

Ahead of the 40th anniversary of the Emergency (June 25, 1975), Advani's interview created new controversy in the country.

Experts believe that Advani indirectly targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government at the Centre.

In the interview, Advani said that the forces that can crush democracy were stronger at present and a repeat of an Emergency-like situation cannot be ruled out.

Reacting on Advani's statement, Kejriwal on Thursday tweeted, "Advani ji is correct in saying that Emergency can't be ruled out. Is Delhi their first experiment?"

However, in the same interview, Advani was quoted as saying, "In civil society, we have only seen the Anna (Hazare) mobilisation for the Lokpal in recent times. But it has disappointed, after raising hopes. The failure of that movement has highlighted that if an agitation tries to take the form of government, it will not be successful."
