Mayhem during inauguration of Delhi’s Signature Bridge, Manoj Tiwari slaps, punches Delhi Police personnel, gets pushed by AAP MLA


The much-awaited inauguration of Delhi’s Signature Bridge on Sunday became the centre point of ugly mayhem between BJP MP Manoj Tiwari and AAP supporters.

Manoj Tiwari

In the video going viral, Tiwari is seen slapping and punching Delhi Police personnel as his supporters clashed with the supporters of AAP. Attired in pink kurta, Tiwari had arrived at the inauguration venue with his supporters long before Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his team arrived.  Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia were scheduled to inaugurate the much-awaited bridge.

In a separate video, Tiwari is seen threatening the cops saying that he had noted down their identity and they will face consequences within four days. Issuing chilling threats to the officers of the Delhi Police, which reports to the BJP government at the Centre, Tiwari said, “I’ve indetified those policemen who pushed me and my supporters. I’ve identified them. I will teach them in four days what police stands for.”

BJP’s Delhi unit later posted a video of Tiwari standing next to the stage when Kejriwal was making his speech. Suddenly, AAP MLA Amanatullah leans towards him and pushes the BJP’s Delhi president. Tiwari would have sustained serious injuries had policemen standing next to him wouldn’t have protected him.

Before arriving at the venue, Kejriwal too tweeted calling the development unprecedented. He wrote, “Unprecedented. Chaos by BJP at Signature Bridge inauguration site. It’s a Delhi government programme. Police mute spectator. Can LG, being head of Delhi police, ensure peace and order at Signature bridge inauguration site?”
