Group of men carrying BJP flags stop Arvind Kejriwal’s car in Delhi, allegedly attack with sticks


A group of around 100 men carrying sticks on Friday stopped the car of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the latter made his way to Narela in Outer Delhi to take part in an event.

The Aam Aadmi Party reacted angrily, accusing the BJP of being behind Friday’s attack on Kejriwal. The party took to Twitter to write, “If @DelhiPolice cannot protect a chief minister then how will they protect the common man? Does this happen in any Indian state where CM is attacked repeatedly and the Police fails to act???”

The AAP also posted a video on the microblogging site in support of its claim that the BJP was responsible for the attack on Kejriwal’s car. It wrote, “This is a proof that Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal was attacked by the goons of @BJP4India. Can @DelhiPolice please tell us when these goons will be arrested?”

In the video, a group of people are seen holding BJP flags while others are seen showing black flags as Kejriwal’s Toyota Innova car makes its way to the event.

In November last year, a man had attacked Kejriwal outside his office in the state secretariat by throwing chilli powders at his face while pretending to touch his feet. Reacting to the development, Kejriwal’s wife, Sunita Kejriwal, had taken to Twitter to lash out at the Delhi Police for not being able to protect a chief minister.

She had written, “Shame on such police, which is unable to protect its chief minister at the behest of the BJP. Children and family members of the same police force are benefiting from the efforts of the Delhi government in education and health sector.”

The Delhi chief minister has been attacked with ink and slippers in the past. He was also slapped once while taking part in the election campaign.
