A day after being slapped during a roadshow, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, here on Sunday, blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the attack saying the party was trying to silence voices raised against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and establish dictatorship.
Addressing the media, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief said: “Yesterday (Saturday) a man attacked me. This was the ninth attack on me in the last five years and fifth since I became the Chief Minister. I don’t think any Chief Minister was attacked so many times.”
He said Delhi was the only place in the country where security for the Chief Minister was in the hands of an opposition party. “My security is the BJP’s responsibility. In all other states, the Chief Minister’s security is the responsibility of the state police, which comes under the CM.”
