Arvind Kejriwal slapped by man during roadshow, cops say attacker an AAP supporter
NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was assaulted by a man while campaigning for Aam Aadmi Party's New Delhi constituency candidate Brijesh Goyal at Moti Nagar on Saturday. The assailant, Suresh Chauhan, climbed on the bonnet of the Maruti Gypsy that Kejriwal was on and appeared to slap him. He was caught by AAP supporters and thrashed before cops deployed for the event rescued the man and admitted him to hospital.
AAP expressed outrage at the laxity in the security around the CM. Kejriwal is entitled to Z-category security cover and is accompanied by a detail of 25 police personnel and a pilot car.
While deputy CM Manish Sisodia tweeted, "Do Narendra Modi and Amit Shah now want to get Arvind Kejriwal assassinated?", party spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj alleged that Delhi Police "lowers its guard while protecting the CM". AAP MP Sanjay Singh, too, alleged a conspiracy behind the attack.
副部长曼尼什·西索迪亚在推特上写道:“纳伦德拉·莫迪和阿米特·沙阿现在想暗杀阿尔温德·可里瓦尔吗?” 平民党发言人Saurabh Bharadwaj称，德里警方“在保护首席部长时放松了警惕”。平民党议员桑杰·辛格也声称这次袭击背后有阴谋。
More controversy followed when Delhi Police claimed that their probe showed Chauhan, 33, was an AAP supporter and was in the reception group at Moti Nagar and as such the incident could not be blamed on police carelessness. They also said his name was on the list submitted by AAP before the event. Bharadwaj refuted the contention that Chauhan was an AAP supporter, and claimed that the attacker's wife, Mamata, had herself told the media that her husband was a "Modi bhakt".
This is the not the first time that the CM has been attacked at a public rally. In 2014, a man had climbed on to his jeep and slapped him when Kejriwal was campaigning ahead of the Delhi assembly elections. In November 2018, a man had entered the Delhi Secretariat and attacked Kejriwal with chilli powder. The AAP leader was also attacked with ink and a shoe during public functions before assuming office as chief minister.

This is a DRAMA staged by Kanjriwal himself to put blame on Modi. Shameless person.

It is quite possible that the attacker is an AAP supporter. This Chauhan fellow might have been brived/threatened into doing this. I just hope that Kejriwal doesn’t have acid thrown at him.

When Kejri wants more funds, he gets slapped by AAP member. When popularity goes down, again another slap from AAP member. How come, these slaps happen only during election time?

Yeah, you Modi bhaktas desperately need Kejriwal to resign on his own as there is no indication that he will lose the next assembly election.

This is not first time where Kejriwal was attacked.Earlier also there were many such incidents.He is prone to such attacks because of his crass behaviour.He has not learnt any lesson event after so many slaps.He is in the company of Hardik patel, Kanhayya kumar, Mevani etc.In the present case, the attacker is a AAP man, so stop blaming BJP.

Then how come an AAP supporter himself was unhappy with him. Please don''t be biased. Think rationally and objectively. How will vision-less leader like Rahul Gandhi shape India? Moreover his becoming the party president is not based on merit; its just that Congress will lose its appeal without Gandhi. How can I support Arvind who was supposed to be an anti-corruption Crusader but ended-up sharing stage with Congress, Lalu, etc.?

This could have been sponsored by AAP to gain sympathy. Such kind of things were done during Delhi Assembly election.
