Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Monday mocked the BJP over the infighting within the party and said that if its veteran LK Advani wants Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra to listen to him then he should remove the word ‘v’ from his last name.

Kejriwal, who has long accused Modi of having proximity to industrialists Mukesh Ambani and Adanis tweeted: If Advani wants Modi to listen to him, he should drop “v” from his name

Kejriwal’s comment comes in the backdrop of a controversy over BJP’s decision to field LK Advani from his Gandhinagar constituency in Gujarat, overruling his desire to shift to Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh reflecting the tension between him and Modi.

Advani is reportedly miffed with the party top brass after he was told to contest from Gandhinagar and not from his choice Bhopal.

However, Advani later said he has decided to contest from the Gandhinagar constituency, after he was mollified by party leaders, including Rajnath Singh and Narendra Modi.

Last week, the activist-turned politician called the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate a “property dealer for corporates like Ambani, Adani and Tatas.”

The former Delhi chief minister said he came to know from people of Gujarat that Modi uses helicopters and planes allegedly belonging to Mukesh Ambani.
