New Delhi, Mar 17, ANI | 5 months ago

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia on Monday reiterated his party chief's stand that if the people of Varanasi gives permission for him (Arvind Kejriwal) to contest from that seat, then AAP will have no harm in naming Kejriwal as a candidate to take on Narendra Modi.


"It is not a referendum. We will go amongst the people and seek their mood of approval. There is no harm in asking the voters before the elections happen there (Varanasi). If the people say that we should not contest from Varanasi we won't, however, if they tell us in affirmative to contest, then we will fight elections from there. Give us the opportunity to first conduct our proposed rally in Varanasi," Sisodia said.

On Sunday, Kejriwal had said in a rally in Bengaluru that, he was ready to take the challenge from Varanasi as an AAP candidate and fight against Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi should the people of Varanasi allows him to do so.
