No bigger 'aam aadmi' than Modi: Rajnath

BJP President today referred to Narendera Modi as the biggest aam aadmi .He also said that Modi will keep the Varanasi seat after winning the elections.

Varanasi, May 10 (PTI): As poll campaign drew to a close in the keenly-watched Varanasi constituency, BJP President Rajnath Singh today took a dig at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), saying there was no bigger ‘aam aadmi’ (common man) than Narendra Modi who used to sell tea at a stall run by his father.

Addressing a press conference, Singh said that Narendra Modi would retain the Varanasi seat after winning the elections. He also hit out at all other parties, namely Congress, SP and BSP, but did not even name AAP whose national convenor Arvind Kejriwal is also fighting against Modi here.

When pointed out that why he does not consider AAP worth mentioning, Singh asked, “Which party?” and feigned ignorance about it.
He said further, “We all are aam aadmi. I am also an aam aadmi and there cannot be a bigger aam aadmi than Narendra Modi whose father used to make tea and he used to sell the tea on railway platforms.”

The BJP President, who was born here, exuded confidence that Modi will win with a huge margin from Varanasi. He added that Kashi will become the karamabhoomi of the future PM.
