New Delhi: While taking on the Congress and BJP, anti-corruption activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday labeled himself as a "deadly dengue mosquito". He said that his sting alike a dengue mosquito will cause trouble to the two political parties.
"I am a deadly dengue mosquito, if I will bite the Congress and the BJP, they would face problems," Kejriwal said here while responding to External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid's statement that the India Against Corruption (IAC) activist's attack was just a mosquito bite that causes minor irritation.
On Friday, Kejriwal accused industrialists and politicians of stashing money in Swiss banks. He targeted Ambani brothers (Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani), Congress MP Annu Tandon and Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal, alleging that they held accounts in HSBC Bank's Geneva branch.
Meanwhile, hitting out at Kejriwal, the Congress on Saturday said his only aim is to defame people. "If Kejriwal has any evidence, he should go to the government or any government agency. Merely by levelling allegations before the media, he can only defame somebody but cannot get anything substantial out of it. This shows that he is only interested in defaming people," said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.
"If anybody has done anything wrong law will take its own course," Alvi said.
