A security breach was reported at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal's roadshow in Gujarat's Surat on Monday. Initially, it was reported that a stone was thrown at Kejriwal's election rally when it was crossing a lane in the city.
Speaking to India Today/AajTak, AAP candidate Alpesh Kathiriya alleged that the stone was thrown by the goons of the Bharatiaya Janata Party (BJP). "While people are showing flowers at Kejriwal, BJP goons are throwing stones," Kathiriya said.
Responding to the attack, Kejriwal said, "They will break my eye. Have I done someone wrong? I say that I will build schools and hospitals. Show me the works done by you, do not abuse," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
The recent attack took place days after AAP claimed that stones were hurled at a jansabha (public meeting) in the poll-bound state.
Aam Aadmi Party's Gujarat chief Gopal Italia took to Twitter and posted video of the incident claiming that a child was injured in the stone pelting.
"Due to the fear of losing the Katargam assembly election, the goons of the BJP pelted stones at my public meeting today, in which a small child got injured," he tweeted in Hindi.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal said that there is a huge craze for AAP among women and youth in Gujarat and the party would win more than 92 out of 182 seats in the next month's Assembly election.
Kejriwal also said that women and youth will vote for AAP even though they are not saying so openly "due to fear of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)".
