New Delhi, Jan.18 (ANI): Demanding apology from Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia for his ‘absurd and completely idiotic allegations’, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders should refrain from using such words.
“I think it’s an absurd and a completely idiotic allegation. Manish Sisodia should really mind his words and instead of blaming everybody, he should not call it an ‘assassination attempt’,” BJP leader Shazia Ilmi told ANI.
“You don’t expect such things said by such a mature person. We condemn the whole incident but to link everything with the BJP and Narendra Modi ji is a bit too much. I think Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia not only owe an apology, but they should be asked to refrain from using such kind of words,” she added.
Sisodia had yesterday alleged that the ink attack on the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal 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)
