New Delhi: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the "anarchist" jibe, signalling towards former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday said Modi is "scared" of its popularity.
"It seems the prime minister is scared of our popularity," AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said.
"He (Modi) could not control himself," he said.
Addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally at Ramlila Maidan here Saturday in the run-up to the assembly polls, Modi, without taking any name, said: "Have you seen leaders who say yes I am an anarchist? If you want that please go with Maoists and do not do this in Delhi".
Meanwhile, Congress leader Anand Sharma also slammed the BJP government at the centre, saying it was a government of the corporates.
"Modi and his government is working for the corporates, not for the common man," Sharma said.
