AAP Chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday, 13 February, took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s educational qualification and said that people should vote for an educated person for the post, instead of a Class “12th pass.”

"I want to tell the people that the position of the Prime Minister is very important. Last time, you made a 12th pass person the Prime Minister of India. This time don't make the 12th pass the Prime Minister. Search for a well-educated person. It is better when a literate person becomes the Prime Minister. The person who is 12th pass does not even understand which document he is signing. The second problem with him is that he does not consult anyone. He does what he wants to do," Kejriwal said at a dharna in Delhi.

Kejriwal also alleged that PM Modi wants to destroy the Constitution of India.

"BR Ambedkar made a Constitution which provided different powers to the state and central governments. Today, Narendra Modi wants to destroy that Constitution. He wants to end democracy in this country. I salute Mamata Banerjee for what she did to Prime Minister Modi's CBI officials," he added.

In yet another broadside against the BJP ahead of Lok Sabha polls, Opposition leaders converged at a mega rally in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.l.

TMC Chief and West Bengal Chief Minister, while addressing the gathering said that she might be opposing the Left parties and Congress in West Bengal, but she will support them in the fight against PM Modi at the national leve

The rally was organised by the Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is critical of the Narendra Modi government at Centre.

Top Opposition leaders including Mamata Banerjee and Farooq Abdullah addressed the rally and slammed the PM Modi-led BJP government. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who skipped the rally, later met all the leaders at NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s residence.
