Expressing shock over Sheila Dikshit's remark that former Manmohan Singh's response to 26/11 attacks was not as strong as Narendra Modi, Party (AAP) chief on Thursday said that it only hinted at "something cooking between the BJP and Congress".

Taking to Twitter, Kejriwal wrote, "This statement of is really shocking. Something is cooking between the BJP and "

Kejriwal's tweet comes after Dikshit acknowledged today that Manmohan Singh's "reaction" after the 26/11 attacks was "not as strong and determined" as that of Modi after the Pulwama strike. She, however, added that the Modi does everything for "politics".

"Manmohan Singh, yes, I agree with you, was not as strong as and as determined as he (Modi) is. But there is also a feeling that he is doing it all for politics," the senior said in an interview to Vir Sanghvi for CNN-News18 channel.

Dikshit was responding when pointed out that after the Indian air strike at (JeM) camp in Balakot in on February 26, Modi would argue that when things like attacks happened (in 2008), "we did nothing in return whereas he has offered a strong basket of response."

Later in the day, Sheila had also clarified that her comments were twisted and she meant it differently.

"I have seen some media is twisting my comments made in an interview. Here is what I said - it may seem to some people that Mr Modi is stronger on terror but I think this is a poll gimmick more than anything else..," she wrote on
