NEW DELHI – Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came under an ‘ink attack’ in Rajasthan on Tuesday, days after he said the Indian government should provide evidence of the claimed “surgical strikes” inside pakistan.
The incident happened as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader was leaving the home of a local leader. A man later identified as Dinesh Ojha accused Kejriwal of being an anti-national and attacked him with black ink.
Ojha, a student leader of the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the BJP was taken into custody, NDTV quoted police sources as saying.
The Delhi CM took to twitter after the attack.
Kejriwal recently came under fire from the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party government for releasing a video in which he took aim at Pakistan but also asked the Indian government to provide substantial evidence regarding the alleged ‘surgical strikes’ across the LoC.
Responding to the BJP’s complaints, Kejriwal said:
“If I asked the government to give a befitting response to Pakistan’s false propaganda, why is BJP so scared and rattled?”
“All the newspapers and televisions including Washington Post, The New York Times, BBC and CNN are rejecting the Indian claim of surgical strikes and in my video, I appealed to PM Modi to give a befitting response to Pakistan’s false propaganda.” AAP leader said.
Kejriwal came under ink attack back in January as well when he was addressing a mammoth.
