Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has termed the attacks on him a political conspiracy. Talking to Punjab Kesari, Kejriwal said that he has been attacked five times since he became the Chief Minister. He accused the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) of planning these attacks on him.
“Matlab ye hamle kyo ho rahe hain? Mera kasoor kya hai? Maine kya galat kar diya? Mere sath aisa koi kyo karega? (Why is happening with me? What is my fault? What wrong did I commit? Why would anyone do this to me?)”, asked Kejriwal.
He suspected that there was a set pattern of these attacks which have been happening one after the other. He said that every time he is attacked, the BJP tries to justify it by saying that the attacker was from Aam Admi Party only. “Mujhe pura yakin hai k BJP wale khatam kar denge, mera murder kara denge (I am sure that the BJP will get me murdered)”, Kejriwal said suspecting that the BJP might even get him killed and then justify it by giving the same reason that some AAP supporter who was unhappy with Kejriwal did this.
“Ek din murder kar denge kahenge Kejriwal ka koi karyakarta tha, Kejriwal se naraz tha, murder kar diya (One day they will get me killed and say that some supporter of Kejriwal who was unhappy with him murdered him) “, added the Chief Minister. He said that even his security was not under his control and that his PSO reports to the BJP.
Recently Kejriwal was slapped by a person during an election campaign. Before that, he was physically attacked several times, and later most of the attackers turned out to be AAP supporters. Unhappy with the direction the Aam Aadmi Party has taken, several senior leaders have left the party, including founder members. And few party workers and supporters have chosen to use physical violence to show their displeasure with the party.
