Silence on AAP's accusation regarding ties with Mukesh Ambani may harm Modi's public image
Arvind Kejriwal started AAP's national campaign on Sunday with his Rohtak public rally in Haryana. His speech was as usual in which he blamed many. This time he blamed Congress, BJP and even media that it was sold out to Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani. Particularly he demanded answers from Modi and Rahul on their links with Mukesh Ambani.

This accusation (Rahul and Modi as Mukesh Ambani's pawn) was not made for the first time. In fact Kejriwal has been repeating these charges since he resigned from the post of Delhi CM. 

Everyone expected that Modi would respond to this charge. But surprisingly neither Modi nor Rahul responded yet. Other party men from both the national parties also never gave any direct answer rather blamed Kejriwal of levelling accusations without any proof.

None is denying Kejri's 'shoot and scoot' habit. But his accusations with respect to Mukesh Ambani?s relations with political parties is very sensible. Congress may avoid it but how can BJP and especially Modi?

Earlier CAG had already pointed out a lot of irregularities in gas production in K-G D6 Basin. Jaipal Reddy's removal raised a lot of eye-brows then and it was told that because of Ambani?s interest, he was replaced with Moily. 

From BJP's side on CAG report on KG basin, Arun Shouri on record said had that he was not allowed to make his speech by his party and instead senior leader Venkaiah Naidu spoke ineffectively.

Congress's excuse of technicality can be understandable. Rahul himself confessed that all corporates are stakeholders in the Congress. Their party is seriously facing defeat in the general election. 

Thus people will not matter whether Congress is responding or not. But how can Modi afford to be silent on it? Every small issue of Congress is criticized by Modi in a harsh tone! How can he didn?t raise this gas pricing issue?

Kejriwal's allegations against Mukesh Ambani's close ties with BJP and Congress has some substance definitely. On the other hand, silence on the part of Narendra Modi would bring serious setback to his poll prospects. 

Ordinary people are always against wealthy people. This is a simple social theory. No response would provoke people to polarize along the line of rich and poor.

If Ambani is the case then even middle class people will consider themselves as poor. Thus Modi's silence would affirm that he has some ties with Mukesh Ambani that is being hidden. 

This impression would make many of his fans standing against him! Despite anarchic attitude, everyone would stand with AAP; because none in this country would want a corporate giant to rule our country indirectly through political parties!

Frankly, even strong critics of AAP party seek the real response from Modi and BJP. If they fail to give a proper answer and clarification, believe me, people will prefer to stand with AAP despite thousands of problems in that party than with BJP and Narendra Modi!
