In a tweet, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party founder Arvind Kejriwal, said that there is “something in the soil of Haryana”, saying that someone from the state only has the capability to stand against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the constituency of Varanasi.
“There is something in the soil of Haryana. Last time too, someone (himself) from Haryana had challenged Modi ji in Varanasi, this time too Haryana’s jawan has locked horns with Modi ji. Best wishes to the SP-BSP alliance candidate from the entire nation,” Kejriwal tweeted.
Kejriwal was talking about himself, when he had contested in 2014, and lost against Modi by a margin of around 4 lakh votes. He was also referring to SP candidate Tej Bahadur Yadav, who is a former BSF jawan and hails from the state of Haryana.
Former Border Security Force jawan, Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had grabbed eyeballs two years ago with his videos criticising the quality of food provided to the defence forces, and the dire conditions they were forced to live in, and was consequently fired for making false claims, was fielded as the Samajwadi Party candidate from the constituency on Monday.
Varanasi will go to polls in the last and the seventh phase of the ongoing 17th Lok Sabha elections. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
