Man throws stone at Arvind Kejriwal at South Delhi rally, AAP leader unhurt

Former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal escaped unhurt after a stone was hurled at him during Aam Aadmi Party's rally at Tigdi in South Delhi area on Saturday.



New Delhi: Former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal escaped unhurt after a stone was hurled at him during Aam Aadmi Party's rally at Tigdi in South Delhi area on Saturday.

The stone, thrown by a youngster barely reached the dais and it was reported that the attacker was apprehended by AAP workers.

With Delhi elections right around the corner, the incident, however, took a political turn in no time.

Kejriwal blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party for the attack, and tweeted: "1 person threw a stone at me in Deoli today. BJP so scared? Resorting to violence? I wish well for the boy who did it."

"We have no bad wishes for people who hurl shoe and stones at us, we wish them all the best," he said.

Meanwhile, the BJP recalled similar instances in the run-up to the Delhi polls in 2013 and termed it a publicity stunt. Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said, "These poll gimmicks are AAP's habit, nothing new."

During last year's election campaigns, Kejriwal had been slapped and 'attacked' several times in the run up to polls. He was once slapped by an autorickshaw driver – Laali – in Sultanpuri, eggs were hurled at him in Najafgarh and ink was also thrown at him once.
