"Modi's nationalism is fake, it is pseudo-nationalism based on an illusion. I want to tell the traders that you are educated and responsible. Do not fall for this illusionary trap, come out of it and see the reality," Arvind Kejriwal said

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Monday alleged that Narendra Modi's nationalism is "fake" and asked which "nationalist prime minister" gets the chief minister of the national capital "attacked".

Kejriwal was referring to his Saturday's roadshow in New Delhi constituency during which he was slapped by a man. The AAP supremo has blamed the BJP for the attack.

"Modi's nationalism is fake, it is pseudo-nationalism based on an illusion. I want to tell the traders that you are educated and responsible. Do not fall for this illusionary trap, come out of it and see the reality," he said at a press conference at AAP headquarters here.

Which "nationalist prime minister" gets the chief minister of the national capital "attacked", he asked.

"Do you think that a prime minister whose government has a direct responsibility to ensure the safety and security of a chief minister and who instead gets the chief minister attacked can be a nationalist? The attack on the chief minister was solely for the reason that he questions the prime minister's Pakistan policy," Kejriwal said.

The AAP supremo said Modi claims that Indian forces entered Pakistan and killed terrorists there, but his Pakistani counterpart wants him to win the upcoming elections.

"Modi ji has secret relations with Pakistan, deep ties, internal ties and when questioned, he gets the chief minister attacked. I say this publicly so I get attacked," he said.

Kejriwal urged the trader community to give the AAP a chance this time and vote for them.

"I am telling the traders to understand the difference between fake and true nationalists," he said.

Delhi goes to polls in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections on May 12. The results will be announced on May 23.
