New Delhi, Jan.18 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday rubbished the allegations made by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, and said that the Arvind Kejriwal led-party should rename itself to ‘All Antics Party’.
“I think the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) antics are never going to end. I think they should rename their party as ‘All Antics Party’, because they are not concerned in serious issues of governance. They want to rake up such non issues and the person involved in the ink attack seems to have links with the AAP,” BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao told ANI.
“It is natural for the people to doubt the very nature of these incidents. Any such incidents in public life are condemnable. We condemn such incidents but at the same time would also urge the AAP leaders to stop politicising such incidents,” he added.
“They came to power saying that they don’t want security and want the people to be secured by the Delhi Police. But they are doing the exact opposite. I think this is complete hypocrisy at its worst. This is petty politicking on the basis of minor incident,” he further said.
Earlier, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had alleged that the ink attack was scripted by the BJP with the help of the Delhi Police.
“The whole incident was scripted by the BJP with the help of the Delhi Police. The BJP can even get the Chief Minister murdered,” he said.
“The incident shows that the Delhi Police are ready for a deadly attack on Kejriwal. Police are not even concerned about the safety of the Chief Minister and the people of the city,” he added.
“It is a very serious and dangerous incident. The Delhi Police were acting mere spectators at the event, where the whole Delhi cabinet was sitting. It is very astonishing that there was not even a single policeman when the woman rushed to the stage and threw ink at Kejriwal. Not even a single policeman was checking people and was looking after the security of the place,” Sisodia said, while adressing reporters after the incident.
Taking on B.S. Bassi-led Delhi Police, Sisodia said, “The Delhi Police keep on shouting that there is high alert in the city. Where is the high alert? Who will take the responsibility if a person comes and throws acid at the Delhi Chief Minister and his cabinet?”
“This incident only shows that the Delhi Police are ready for a deadly attack on Kejriwal. Police are not even concerned about the safety of the Chief Minister and the people of the city. The whole incident is scripted by the BJP with the help of the Delhi Police. They can even get the Chief Minister murdered. The whole incident was scripted by the Saffron Party with the help of the Delhi Police,” he said.
A woman, who identified herself as Bhavna, Punjab in-charge of the Aam Aadmi Sena, threw ink at the Delhi Chief Minister in protest over an alleged CNG scam. However, she was released last night on a personal bail bond and will appear before the Rohini court today.
“The Odd-Even formula was positive, but behind that was a big CNG Scam, of which I have proofs. That is why I wanted to meet the Chief Minister and Gopal Raiji (Transport Minister), but they didn’t agree to meet me,” said the attacker.
She further stated that in the scam, CNG stickers were issued on bike numbers.
“I will go to the court at 10 o’clock today. I will submit all papers before the court. Investigation should be done in the matter,” she added.
The woman also blamed the party volunteers of manhandling her after the attack and thanked the Delhi Police for bringing her into safety.
She was, however, seen being dragged out of the venue by the policemen.
The incident took place when Kejriwal was expressing his gratitude to the people of Delhi for making the Odd-Even formula a success.
The woman rushed close to the dais and threw ink at Kejriwal. She was immediately apprehended by the police. However, the Chief Minister told the cops to leave her.
“Leave her; she is talking about some scam. Please take that paper from her she is mentioning some CNG scam,” he said.
The event was organised by the AAP Government to thank the people of Delhi for making the odd-even experiment, which ended on January 15, a success. (ANI)
