New Delhi, Jan.17 (ANI): Condemning the ink attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Minister of State for Home (MoS) Kiren Rijiju on Sunday said that it was very unfortunate that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders were accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Delhi Police for orchestrating the whole incident.
“I was upset that some of the AAP leaders started BJP of orchestrating the attack. This is ridiculous actually. It is very unfortunate to accuse the Delhi Police or the BJP. AAP keeps telling on people to protest in an ugly manner,” Rijiju told ANI.
“Just because of one incident how you (AAP) can make an allegation that it was orchestrated and instigated by BJP. This statement is very unbecoming,” he added.
“See anybody may be upset with leader. The lady, who has thrown ink on the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, may be upset with him, but this is not the proper way to protest. This kind of protest is not good in our civilized society,” he further said.
Earlier, 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.
The woman 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)
