Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "world famous liar", Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused him of behaving like a Pakistani Prime Minister to subvert India's federal structure.

Extending support to his Andhra Pradesh counterpart N Chandrababu Naidu in his demand for special category status to the southern state, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief also said Modi cannot be trusted.

"It is unfortunate that the chief minister and thousands of people from Andhra have to demonstrate here for special status for the state. This poses a big question on the country's federal structure," said Kejriwal at the Andhra Bhavan here where the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president is on fast asking the Centre to give special category status and fulfill other commitments made in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.

"The PM at least thrice publicly declared he would give special status to Andhra. He is world famous for lying. Whatever he says, he never fulfills. Even (BJP chief) Amit Shah says that whatever they say is nothing but jumla," he said. Claiming that Modi had pledged to give special status to Andhra Pradesh at the Tirupati temple, he said, "A person who backs out on his word given in front of god cannot be trusted."
