NEW DELHI: Taking a dig at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, BJP today said he was attacking its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi only to remain in the "limelight".

"If Arvind Kejriwal wants to remain in limelight, he has to chant 'Namo Namo'. He knows that he is doing 'Modi-Modi' only to remain in news," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

Hussain also alleged that Kejriwal was ousted from Delhi and now he has no takers. Neither the media nor the country takes him seriously, he said.

"If he does not speak against Narendra Modi, the media would not pay any attention to him. He has been ousted from Delhi and neither the people of the country nor the media takes him seriously. He is now doing his politics by chanting Modi's name," Hussain added.

Kejriwal at a rally in Bangalore yesterday had said that he would visit Varanasi, where BJP has nominated its prime ministerial candidate Modi, on March 23 and it was up to the people to decide whether they would give him the responsibility of fighting from the city or not.

Putting the onus on the people, Kejriwal had said that whatever the people of Varanasi decide it will be final.

Kejriwal's remarks had come a day after the BJP announced that Modi will contest from the holy city of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
