After Arvind Kejriwal's tweets attacking Narendra Modi over the gas pricing issue, the Aam Aadmi Party today again hit out at the BJP's prime ministerial candidate and questioned his silence on the matter.

"He has not spoken about the Reliance gas issue. He has also not revealed his relations with the Adanis (group)," senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia said after the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting here.

Sisodia also alleged that Congress had done "special favour" of increasing the gas price from April 1 to favour Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries, an issue on which the BJP leader has kept quiet so far.

In a series of messages on Twitter this morning, Kejriwal had hit out at Modi and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi questioning their stand on the issue and their "relationship" with industrialists Mukesh Ambani and Adani.

The party has been attacking the two leaders over this issue ever since an FIR was registered by AAP-led Delhi government against Mukesh Ambani and Union petroleum minister Veerappa Moily.

Amidst rumours that Kejriwal may contest against Modi, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said it was waiting for him to declare the seat from where he would contest only after which the party will decide its strategy.

Commenting on Modi's statement that there was no question of him indulging in corruption since he did not have a family, party leader Sanjay Singh said, "Someone who has a family can relate well about people's problems like inflation.

"He (Modi) says that he does not have a family, but we have an information that he does. Now its up to him what he says," Singh said.

He also accused Modi of not fulfilling promises made by him as Gujarat Chief Minister and of shielding tainted ministers in his cabinet.

"He had made a promise of making 50 lakh houses in Gujarat, but even 50 houses have not been made," Singh alleged.

"Babu Bokhariya is still in his Cabinet, who was convicted by a lower court. (BJP MP) Dinu Solanki is accused of killing RTI activist Amit Jethwa. Gunwielding Vitthal Radadiya, was welcomed in the party. This shows his intentions," he said.
