New Delhi: A woman, alleging a “CNG scam” in the AAP government, threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday at a public gathering here to mark the “success” of the odd-even traffic restriction scheme but missed him.
Kejriwal, who was speaking at the Chhatrasal Stadium, in north Delhi, remained unruffled. Police detained the woman.
The woman, who identified herself as Bhawna Arora from the Aam Aadmi Party’s breakaway group in Punjab, managed to reach near the stage to fling the ink. “A very big scam has happened. I have proof. They have done CNG scam,” she said.
Kejriwal asked the police officials, who were seen taking the woman away, to “let her go”.
“She is talking about a scam. Take papers from her. Let her go,” he said.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party and Delhi Police for the incident, saying it was a “conspiracy” to attack Kejriwal and his ministers.
“There was no security provided by Delhi Police. It is a conspiracy by the BJP and Delhi Police is also involved in it,” Sisodia said after the incident.
“Who will take the responsibility if any woman or man throws acid at Delhi’s chief minister where thousands of people are sitting. What if a bomb goes off,” he asked. (IANS)
