The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday fired the first set of its five daily questions for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, asking him why he took the Congress's support to form the government in Delhi and travelled in a private jet.

The party also sought to know why Kejriwal used a Sports Utility Vehicle for work and accepted Z+ security when he was the chief minister.

They also demanded to know why he hadn't ordered a probe against senior Congress leader and three-time Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

Not amused by the questioning, Aam Aadmi Party leaders said it reflected the panic that had set in the party.

"Just want to tell BJP, they can ask us 50, not five questions, but at least they should come up with new set of questions. The same questions have been repeatedly asked and been answered. It clearly shows that panic has set in the BJP," said senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav.

Earlier in the day, BJP Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said his party would ask Kejriwal five questions everyday till February 6, a day before Delhi goes to polls.

The party had also announced that it will eschew a manifesto for the forthcoming Delhi polls and will instead come up with a 'vision document'.

Voting for the 70-member Delhi assembly will be held on February 7 and counting will take place on February 10. A total of 673 candidates are in the fray.
