New Delhi :
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that the BJP was behind the Saturday's attack on him during a roadshow in Moti Nagar area of the national capital and demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's resignation. Addressing a press conference in Delhi, Kejriwal said, "A Chief Minister was attacked and the Central government says, 'didn't receive the complaint, unable to move ahead with further proceedings, the PM should resign over it. It's not an attack on Arvind Kejriwal, it is an attack on Delhi's mandate."
The Aam Aadmi Party chief said that he was the only cheif minister in the history of the country who had faced such attack and whose security responsibility was in the hands of the Opposition party.
"This was 9th attack on me in last five years and 5th after becoming the Chief Minister. I don't think so if there is any CM in the history of India who has faced such attacks. In our country, the CM of Delhi is the only CM whose security is in the hands of opposition party," he said during a presser at party headquarters in Delhi.
Kejriwal said that the attack on him was a BJP conspiracy and the man who attacked him was sent to give a message that anybody standing against Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not be spared.
"The attacker was sent to give a message to the country that anyone who will dare to speak against Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not be spared. Every voice raised against you should be suppressed - this is the sign of dictatorship," the AAP chief said.
Meanwhile, an FIR under IPC Section 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) has been registered against Suresh, the man who slapped Kejriwal. Delhi police claimed that Suresh, who is a scrap dealer in the area, was an disgruntled AAP worker but the party denied the claims and said that he was a Modi fan and was sent by the BJP to attack the Delhi cheif minister.
