The suggestion came after PM Modi asked on social media for ideas for his August 15 speech.
"My 15th August speech should represent the voice of 125 crore Indians. Share your ideas for the speech on (Narendra Modi) mobile app", Modi said.
It is to be noted that Kejriwal, the National Convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party, is long engaged in an acrimonious power struggle in Delhi against the BJP-led central government.
