Ink thrown at Kejriwal by ‘ABVP leader’ in Rajasthan


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had ink thrown at him by a student belonging to the RSS’ student wing, Akhil Bharatiya  Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) in Bikaner on Tuesday.

According to media reports, the AAP chief was attacked with ink for his alleged remarks on Army’s surgical strike carried out across LoC in response to Uri attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to witnesses, Dinesh Ojha, a student leader of ABVP accused Kejriwal on his face of being an anti-national and threw ink at him, NDTV reported.

Kejriwal said in his tweet, “God bless those who threw ink at me, I wish them well.”

The attack on Kejriwal came on a day his Health Minister Satyendra Jain had a narrow escape after he was once again targeted in a slipper attack by a woman who claimed she was hurt by the Delhi CM’s remarks on India’s anti-terror strikes across the Line of Control.

Bhavana Arora — who claimed to belong to the Aam Aadmi Sena – hurled a piece of footwear at Mr Jain while he was outside the Income Tax office today afternoon. However, the slipper only hit the vehicle in which he – and also senior AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh – was travelling.

“How could the Aam Aadmi Party demand proof of strikes by the Indian Army? They are behaving like Pakistani agents,” Arora said.

Last year, Arora had thrown ink on Kejriwal during a rally at Chhatrasal stadium to thank Delhiites for making odd-even formula for cars a success.

This is not the first time that the AAP leaders have been attacked with ink by members from the opposing political parties.

On 19 September, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, was attacked with ink outside the Lt Governor’s Office by a man who claimed that he was upset over the AAP leader undertaking a tour of Finland at a time when the city was grappling with a health crisis.

When Sisodia was about to get into his car after talking to media persons, Brijesh Shukla threw ink at Sisodia which splattered across his arms and on a portion of his forehead.
