Bikaner: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who faced ink attack in Rajasthan's Bikaner yesterday, has no ill feelings towards those who were behind it.
The AAP national convenor expressed this in a tweet late Wednesday night.
“Hmm..God bless those who threw ink, I wish them well,” Kejriwal had tweeted.
Hmmm... God bless those who threw ink at me. I wish them well.

The response from Delhi Chief Minister came shortly after two men threw ink on Arvind Kejriwal in presence of police and media.
Reports added that Kejriwal was shown black flags for his alleged “pro-Pakistan” statements.
Last month, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was also subjected to an ink attack. The attacker was reportedly upset over Sisodia's Europe tour while the city was battling a dengue/chikungunya outbreak.
Kejriwal was reportedly attacked for asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi Modi to "expose the false propaganda" being spread by Islamabad.
In a short video message, Kejriwal had praised Modi but also focused on Pakistan's claims that no surgical strikes were ever conducted on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control.
However, the BJP accused him of playing politics over the anti-terror surgical strike.
In response, Kejriwal said he wondered why was the BJP "scared" when he had only asked the Prime Minister to counter the false propaganda by Pakistan.
“I only said that Pakistan is spreading false propaganda in the world that surgical strikes did not happen. We all believe that surgical strikes took place," Kejriwal told reporters at the Jodhpur civil airport before he proceeded to Bikaner by road to meet a party worker who had lost his mother.
Claiming that Kejriwal "sought proof" on the anti-terror operation, the BJP asked him not to belittle the armed forces by getting influenced by Pakistani "propaganda".
