Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said his party would do everything to stop the Modi-Shah duo from coming to power and support any "secular mahagathbandhan" after the general election.

Addressing the media after releasing the party manifesto here, Kejriwal said the AAP's focus would be on getting full statehood for Delhi.

 "We will fight our battle on the issue of getting full statehood for Delhi," he said.

Kejriwal targeted Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah over his remarks to remove "infiltrators" except Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists.

"This proves that the BJP plans to remove all other religions except these three religions," he said.

The chief minister also hit out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi after the AAP and the grand old party failed to form an alliance.

"Want to ask Rahul Gandhi which alliance is formed on Twitter? If Modi, Shah returned to power, only Gandhi will be responsible," Kejriwal said.

He alleged that the country's unity was being challenged by the BJP and asserted that the general election could help save the nation.

"We will do everything to stop the Shah-Modi duo. We will support any grand alliance government. The 2019 election is to save the nation, save the Constitution. We are Indians first, then Hindu or Muslim," Kejriwal said.

"Our unity is being challenged. The country can be saved only if we don't get divided across religion and caste lines," he added.

Previously, on April 13, The party's chief Arvind Kejriwal had retweeted a post shared by the AAP's Twitter handle, where the party said that 'General Dyer Modi's police brutally pelting stones on the citizens in Mayapuri, Delhi'.

Clashes had broken out between locals and the security forces in Delhi's Mayapuri area after MCD officials began to seal some factories in the area following National Green Tribunal's (NGT) order to seal nearly 850 factories

Kejriwal commented on his retweet saying that the BJP has lathi-charged the shopkeepers and closed their shops in Mayapuri in exchange for their support to the party.

Colonel Reginald Dyer is the infamous British officer under whose orders troops fired upon hundreds of Sikhs who had gathered peacefully on the occasion of Baisakhi on April 13, 1919. The firing led to the deaths of over 300 Sikhs. The comment comes as the nation mourns and remembers the martyrs of the event on its 100 year anniversary.
