In Gujarat today, Arvind Kejriwal claimed, "The Congress is finished," in response to a claim made by the Congress.
When the Delhi Chief Minister and leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) took questions from the media, he was addressing a town hall with sanitation employees while in Gujarat to campaign for elections early the following year.
He was asked by a reporter to comment to the Congress' claim that the AAP administration in Punjab is spending millions on advertisements for Gujarat while being on the verge of bankruptcy and having no money for even paying its employees' salaries.
"Who asked this question," Kejriwal asked the reporter. When he was told it was a Congress leader's allegation, he shot back: "The Congress is finished. Stop taking their questions. People are clear about this. Nobody cares about their questions."
Kejriwal has been pitching AAP as the BJP's main rival, instead of the Congress. He has urged voters not to waste their votes on the Congress, insisting that the party is nowhere.
