Ludhiana, Jan. 17 (ANI): Criticising the ink attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, senior advocate H.S. Phoolka on Sunday said the incident was staged by some political parties in view of the “huge success” of the odd-even scheme implementation and overwhelming support it got from the Delhiites..
He said parties failed to “absorb” the success, and therefore, they are resorting to such measures.
“Besides this, Kejriwal’s successful rallies in Punjab have made not just the Badals, but even Prime Minister Narendra Modi jittery, which ultimately resulted in the ink attack,” said Phoolka, who had contested the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from the Ludhian constituency on AAP ticket.
“I have heard that the girl is from Punjab; had she thrown ink at Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, she would have not got bail for three months, whereas Kejriwal asked police to let her go,” he said, this is how good leaders behave.
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)
