New Delhi: BJP leader Arun Jaitley Saturday said that party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was "well advised to deny an audience" to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal as "silence can be the best response to a maverick".
In an article on his website, Jaitley said that he has always wondered how to deal with a maverick.
"Do you answer questions which a maverick puts to you? Do you meet him when he tries to gate crash into your house? Do you allow him to occupy the centre stage by engaging him or do you ignore him and continue with your conventional style of setting the agenda? That I feel is a safer option," he said.
"Silence can be the best response to a maverick. It is dignified. It saves you the embarrassment of engaging with a maverick on his bizarre agenda. Narendra Modi, therefore, was well advised to deny an audience to Arvind Kejriwal," said the Bharatiya Janata Party leader.
