Arvind Kejriwal on 'outsider' remark: Is Modi an insider in Varanasi?

Kejriwal: Not an outsider in Varanasi
Varanasi, May 9: A day after the saffron topis donned the streets of Varanasi, it was time for the Aam Aadmi Party to take on the streets of the Holy City.

On Friday, a confident Arvind Kejriwal began his roadshow in Varanasi, Rural. Speaking to CNN-IBN, Kejriwal said that he was confident of his victory. "We will win by 2 lakh votes and Narendra Modi will lose his deposit," he said.

On asking him that he was termed as an outsider in Varanasi, he said, "Toh Modiji yahan kaunse muhallah mein rehte hai (In which area does Modiji live here?). Even he is not from here. I am not an outsider, I am an Indian."

When asked if he would come back to the city after elections he said, "Of course I will come back. We have atleast come here before elections, others don't even come to ask for votes, forget coming after the elections. I will surely return back after the elections."

"Modiji comes for two hours in a helicopter, whereas we have been here for days, interacted with the people on the ground," he said. Kejriwal said that people didn't want this 'helicopter politics'.

Varanasi goes to polls on May 12.
