Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s car was allegedly attacked today. The attack took place when he was on his way to Narela in Outer Delhi for an inauguration.
About 100 men tried to stop Kejriwal’s cavalcade and attacked it with sticks. However, nobody was hurt, as per PTI reports quoted by NDTV.
The IndianExpress reported that Kejriwal was on his way to inaugurate developmental work at 25 unauthorised colonies.

After the attack, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) slammed the Delhi Police on Twitter. He tweeted: “If @DelhiPolice cannot protect a chief minister then how will they protect the common man? Does this happen in any Indian state where CM is attacked repeatedly and the Police fails to act???”
In November, Kejriwal had alleged attempt on his life when a man threw chilli powder on his face. Kejriwal was leaving his third-floor chamber in the Delhi Secretariat complex when the man who pretended to fall at his feet, subsequently attacked him.
“I have been attacked four times in two years, and it’s no minor issue. These attacks aren’t taking place, they’re being ordered because we have become an obstacle and they want me to die,” he had said then.
In the past, the 50-year-old Chief Minister has been attacked with ink and slippers, and slapped while campaigning for the elections.
