The Aam Aadmi Party kickstarted its Lok Sabha campaign on Sunday with its leader Arvind Kejriwal challenging Narendra Modi to "show guts" in giving a promise to bring back black money of his industrialist friends allegedly stashed away abroad if he becomes Prime Minister.

Attacking both Modi and Rahul Gandhi on corruption issue and accusing their parties of favouring top industrialists, Kejriwal also alleged that any government, be it that of Modi or Gandhi, will be run by top business magnate Mukesh Ambani.

Kejriwal launched his campaign from his home state of Haryana at a well-attended hunkar (battle cry) rally, his first after he resigned as Delhi Chief Minister on February 14. AAP plans to contest around 300 Lok Sabha seats.

During his 49-day tenure as Chief Minister, Kejriwal ordered filing a FIR against Mukesh Ambani and Oil Minister M Veerappa Moily among others, accusing them of manipulating gas prices, a charge denied by Ambani's Reliance Industries.

He said he has written to both Modi and Rahul on the issue of natural gas pricing and questioned their silence.
