Kejriwal's convoy attacked in Punjab

Kejriwal's convoy attacked  in Punjab

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s convoy was attacked on the Ludhiana-Ferozepur road in Punjab on Monday.

The AAP was quick to describe it as a well-planned conspiracy hatched by the Akalis to eliminate Kejriwal.

 The chief minister’s car was pelted with stones. The car’s  windscreen was shattered. Kejriwal was sitting on the front seat when the attack took place. After the attack, Kejriwal tweeted, “My car attacked with sticks and stones in Ludhiana. Front glass pane broken. Badals and the Congress nervous? They can’t break my spirits”. 

AAP leaders, including Sanjay Singh and others demanded a high-level probe by a sitting judge of the highcourt. An AAP leader said, “Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal is responsible for the attack as it was all planned at the behest of him.”

Sukhbir Badal has meanwhile condemned the attack. Even the Congress has denounced the incident. 

Sanjay Singh claimed that the presence of Harkinder Singh, younger brother of Ludhiana MLA Manpreet Singh Ayali apart from Youth Akali leaders Amandeep Singh Aulakh and Prabhdeep Singh Mangat, is enough indication for the conspiracy by Akalis to ‘kill’ Kejriwal.

Kejriwal is on a five-day tour in poll-bound Punjab. 

The police is also hand-in-glove in the conspiracy as cops deployed for security deliberately guided the convoy to an unscheduled route in the pretext of  safety, where more than 100 Akali “goons” were already in wait for the attack, he alleged.

 The AAP alleged that the attackers were all trained goons and were entertained with liquor and food at a nearby resort before attack.
