Allahabad: BJP on Wednesday accused Congress of
orchestrating the slipper attack on Team Anna member Arvind
Kejriwal.

"I strongly condemn the slipper attack on Kejriwal. It
appears that Congress had deployed its henchmen at the venue
with clear instructions for indulging in such a mischief," BJP
national vice-president Kalraj Mishra said.

He said Congress is "inventing new tricks" to suppress
anti-corruption crusades.

A man yesterday threw a slipper at Kejriwal in Lucknow
when he was proceeding for an event as part of Team Anna`s
anti-corruption campaign.

Mishra said, "Congress seems to have failed to draw
lessons from its mistakes...It seems reluctant to give up its
invidious ways...The party`s failure to act against its
tainted leaders has generated resentment among public and its
attempts to intimidate and demoralise whistle-blowers would
only make matters worse."
