 BJYM leaders organise a protest outside Delhi CM’s residence on Wednesday

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leaders on Wednesday alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s house was attacked by BJP members. This came after leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) and some other party workers organised a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister’s home over his remarks on ‘The Kashmir File’ at the Delhi Assembly last week.

BJP leaders accused Kejriwal of mocking the “genocide” of Kashmiri Pandits and demanded his apology. Police, however, said that they immediately removed the protesters by detaining around 70 of them.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, in a press conference, said, “BJP wants to get Kejriwal killed.” He also said “anti-social elements” vandalised the security barriers and a CCTV camera at Kejriwal’s residence.

Several leaders of the party spoke about the alleged attack, claiming BJP protesters had broken CCTV cameras and security barriers “in the presence of Delhi Police”.

To substantiate their allegation, the party also released a “raw CCTV footage”. The 35-second clip (which doesn’t have an audio), shows around two dozen men walking up to the gates and knocking down a security barrier in the process.

Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, national secretary of the BJP’s youth wing, said they had organised a protest but were not involved in vandalism. Demanding an apology from the Delhi Chief Minister, he tweeted, “We will continue our protests till Kejriwal apologizes to Hindus.”

Senior AAP leader and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann tweeted (in Hindi),” The anger of the BJP is clearly visible in Punjab due to the crushing defeat at the hands of the Aam Aadmi Party. The attack on the house of Chief Minister Delhi, @arvindkejriwal ji in the presence of police is a cowardly act. Now it is clear that BJP is only afraid of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal.”

Delhi Police, issuing a statement, said, “Around 1 pm, some protestors breached two barricades and reached the chief minister’s house where they created ruckus, shouted slogans…They were carrying a small box of paint from which they threw paint at the door… a boom barrier arm was also found vandalised and a CCTV camera.”
