Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who recently arrived in Delhi from Findland, was attacked with ink outside the Lt Governor’s office on Monday.
The ink attacker, according to media reports, claimed that he was upset over the AAP leader undertaking a tour of Finland at a time when the city was grappling with a health crisis.
Brijesh Shukla attacked Sisodia with inked when Sisodia was about to get into his car after talking to media persons. The ink splattered across his arms and on a portion of his forehead.
Reacting to the attack, Sisodia said the ink attack on him was reflection of the “dirty politics of Congress and BJP”. Shukla, a resident of north east Delhi’s Karawal Nagar, has been detained by police.
According to media report, he said he was angry with the Deputy Chief Minister for visting Finland at a time when the city was grappling with rising cases of chikungunya and dengue.
Sisodia said, “Delhi government is committed to working on health and education. But Congress and BJP are working on ink. They have nothing to do with Delhiites. Their aim is to stop our initiatives. This is the dirty politics of BJP and Congress.”
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had on Friday asked Sisodia to cut short his trip to Finland and immediately return to Delhi in view of the outbreak of chikungunya and dengue which triggered further tussle between the Kejriwal government and the LG office.
