New Delhi: As the high-voltage campaigning for crucial assembly polls entered in its last lap, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal has claimed that if his party forms government in Delhi after winning elections it will avoid any confrontation with the Centre.

Speaking to a leading daily, the AAP chief claimed that his party won't confront the Centre but look for constructive co-operation with the central government.

The AAP leader expressed hope that the Centre will also reciprocate positively.

Reacting to various encouraging poll surveys predicting a comfortable victory for AAP, Kejriwal said that both he and his party have learnt from past mistakes and evolved and the changes will reflect in the way they function.

"For a healthy democracy, one needs debate, discussion, dissent and dharna. We will do whatever is needed but dharna will be the last resort," he was quoted as saying.

Criticising BJP's negative politics, Kejriwal said that its 'abusive agenda' has helped AAP regain middle class support.

Reacting to BJP's funding allegation, the AAP chief dared the Modi government and asked the Finance Minister to arrest him if he had received any 'hawala money' for party funds, which came through cheques.
