Delhi Chief Minsiter Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that Priyanka Gandhi was wasting her time in Delhi as the Congress party will loose its deposit on all the seven seats it is contesting in the national capital. The Aam Aadmi Party chief, however, advised her to rather focus on states such as Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh where her party is in direct contest with the BJP.
"She (Priyanka Gandhi) is wasting her time, why doesn't she campaign in Rajasthan and MP. She's doing rallies in UP against SP-BSP, she's doing rallies in Delhi against AAP. Both the brother and sister aren't going to those places where there's direct fight with BJP," kejriwals said.

The AAP chief also took on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is schedulled to address an election rally at Delhi's historic Ramlila Ground later in the day. On behalf of the people of Delhi, he fired three questions for the prime minister to answer during his address.
"People of Delhi have 3 questions for PM Modi. 1) Why didn't BJP pass an ordinance and stop the sealing? 2) In 2014, Modi promised full statehood for Delhi. Why didn't BJP grant full statehood ?3) Why Imran Khan is endorsing Narendra Modi?" he said.
The Aam Aadmi Party, which came to power in Delhi with an unprecedented mandate has been at the loogerheads with the Narendra Modi-led Central government over a host of issues. However, after that landslide victory, the party broke into peices and several leaders either quit or shown the door. Since then, it is struggling to keep its vote bank intact.
