Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has reportedly alleged that the BJP was responsible for the attack on him during a roadshow and claimed he was targeted because he had been lately questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “relationship” with Pakistan.
The AAP supremo, at a press conference held at the party headquarters, said this was not just an attack on him but an assault on the people of Delhi and the mandate they had given.
The BJP rubbished the claim as Kejriwal’s “propaganda”.
Kejriwal said, “This is the ninth attack on me and fifth one since I took charge as the chief minister of Delhi. And, for any attack on me in future, BJP will be responsible.”
“They (BJP) do not want common man to enter politics so we are being targeted. Our only fault is that we have tried to bring development in Delhi, in education, health and other sectors. They are feeling insecure that people in other states, might start asking questions to the party, on such real issues,” he said.
Kejriwal was slapped allegedly by a disgruntled AAP supporter during a roadshow in Moti Nagar on Saturday.
“For this attack on me, the BJP and Prime Minister Modi is responsible. The response from the police after the incident was scripted. The police is not responsible for this, they were merely following the ‘script’ given by the ruling party,” he alleged.
“The people of Delhi will take revenge for this act,” Kejriwal said.
He also dismissed the charge that the attacker was an AAP supporter as claimed by the police.
