New Delhi: After Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is conspiring to kill Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, fearing its defeat in MCD and Gujarat elections, the Delhi Lieutenant Governor (L-G) V. K. Saxena has taken a note of the incidents and directed the city Police Commissioner to ensure that such incidents do not take place.
Sisodia on Thursday alleged that former Delhi BJP President and MP Manoj Tiwari is openly asking his “goons” (supporters) to attack Kejriwal and has done complete planning for it.
A source at the Raj Niwas, the official residence of the L-G, said the L-G has taken note of the tweets and statements by the AAP.
“L-G has taken note of tweets and statements by AAP leaders, including Dy CM Manish Sisodia and asked the Police Commissioner to ensure that such eventuality — orchestrated, or otherwise, do not happen, to the farthest possible extent,” the source added.
“Fearing defeat in Gujarat and MCD elections, BJP is plotting to kill @ArvindKejriwal. Their MP Manoj Tiwari is openly asking his goons to attack Arvind ji and has done complete planning for it. AAP is not afraid of their petty politics, now the public will give a reply to their hooliganism,” Sisodia had tweeted earlier.
Issuing a statement on the controversy, the AAP said, “The party strongly condemned the threats in bold words stating “the BJP is “horrified” by the huge public support AAP is receiving from Delhi and Gujarat. Threatening to kill Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister elected with a huge mandate, the man who is the National Convenor of the party running governments in two states, is an insult to the people of Delhi and the country”.”
