The AAP leader, however, did not reveal his plans of contesting the Lok Sabha election. Reports said that Kejriwal would contest the poll against Modi and his name hasn't figured in the five candidates' lists that his party has released so far.
Kejriwal reportedly backed Modi as the PM at a Mumbai function recently
A few days ago, Kejriwal reportedly said at a function in Mumbai that he would prefer Narendra Modi as the PM over the likes of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati. He reportedly said that if he is forced to choose the PM, he would choose Modi. The AAP leader, however, denied making such remark and said the media was misquoting him.
