Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Tuesday said his party was ready to join hands with a "non-BJP" front at the Centre to keep the saffron party out of power.

The deputy of also accused the BJP of playing "divisive" and termed and the saffron party's as the "biggest danger" to the country.

"The Modi-Shah duo is the biggest danger to this country. They promote divisions in society and want to capture power by dividing the society.

"In this backdrop, we fear that if Modi and Shah come to power again, then riots will increase in the country. The situation in the country will become like and Syria," he told reporters here.

Therefore, it is necessary to defeat them, the (AAP) leader said.

"To keep Modi and Shah out of power, we are ready to join hands with a non-BJP, non-Modi government at the Centre," he said when asked about what role the AAP could play in government formation at the Centre once the Lok Sabha results are declared on May 23.

The AAP has fielded former Union from the Chandigarh seat, which goes to polls in the general election's final phase on May 19.

Dhawan had joined the Arvind Kejriwal-led party six months back.

Replying to a question, Sisodia said, "Modi is campaigning in the entire country, let's see how many seats he gets."

"The BJP is fighting the poll in Modi's name. The ruling party (at the Centre) is not talking about issues," the minister said.

Sisodia said his party is fighting the polls on the basis of its work and performance.

To another question, he said everyone knows the condition of institutions like the and the under the present BJP-led NDA government.

On Chief Minister and AAP national convener being shown black flags in Punjab, Sisodia said, "It is not the public, but the (AAP's) political rivals who are doing so."

On BJP's sitting from Chandigarh Kirron Kher, he claimed that she does not have much to show on the performance front.

"In the last general elections, the people of Chandigarh elected her, but 'madam' remained busy in doing advertisements and shooting (for films), he alleged.

Sisodia evaded a direct reply to a question on the AAP's Chandigarh unit apparently remaining "inactive after actor-turned-politician Gul Panag, who had contested the 2014 from here as a AAP nominee, lost.

"What should she have done according to you? No, she did not run away anywhere. You may feel the party unit here is defunct, but we are active," he said.
