Arvind Kejriwal-led party is expected to discuss its future plan if BJP forms the government in the national capital. Arvind Kejriwal-led party is expected to discuss its future plan if BJP forms the government in the national capital.

Convener of the AAP Delhi unit Ashutosh met senior Delhi Police officials on Saturday after a sting operation by news channel News 24 revealed a conversation in which an attack on national convener was being planned during a meeting in Kirari on Sunday.

The party alleged that the “attack” was being planned by people connected with BJP MLA from Kirari Anil Jha. In a memorandum submitted to Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Deepak Mishra, the AAP sought Jha’s arrest.

“Questioning of the individual shown in the sting, along with the BJP MLA from Kirari, Anil Jha, will reveal the scale of the conspiracy and to what extent the BJP leadership is involved in launching physical attacks on Arvind Kejriwal. The sting operation confirms the apprehensions expressed by the AAP since March-April, when in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, Kejriwal was attacked a number of times in Delhi and other parts of the country,” Ashutosh said. In April, Kejriwal was assaulted by an auto-rickshaw driver while he was campaigning in Kirari.

Mishra confirmed the meeting with the AAP leader. “We had a detailed meeting on the issue. We are looking into the matter,” he said.

The AAP memorandum states, “In a major expose’ by a TV news channel on Friday night, it has been revealed that the attack was allegedly orchestrated by the local BJP MLA Anil Jha and he had advance knowledge of the incident. Jha’s close associate, one Lokesh, has been shown in this sting… saying that they were planning to carry out an attack on Arvind Kejriwal in his meeting scheduled in Kirari area on August 24 (Sunday). We, hereby, request you to immediately take cognizance of the admissions made by this person called Lokesh, arrest him and BJP MLA Anil Jha immediately to foil any conspiracy to carry out another attack on Kejriwal on Sunday.”

              You are showing your smartness by talking blindly. The sting clearly shows that the autowala was paid by BJP.

                keep living in the imaginary RSS terrorist world which wants hindus and muslims to fight just like stupid al qaida and taliban and boko haram and ISIS also wants. i think we must lock all islamic terrorists and RSS-bajrang dal shiv sena etc. in one island and let them fight and die and rest of world can be in peace.

                    At least now AK should stop equating Congress with BJP. They both may be neck deep in corruption thanks to the system and but BJP has dangerous elements, more poorly educated leadership, more lumpen/ goon elements, more money to throw, greater desperation to win regardless of violent, reckless means.

                      We all have seen the giant like auto driver hitting AK on the face with all his might and AK's face literally bulging as a result. The people of India were shocked. We can naturally ume the criminals who contracted this auto driver to inflict physical damage on AK's face might have told him to inflict maximum damage on AK and more the damage more the money.Arackal Narayana Pillai Ajith K, who in your opinion among the parties of Congress, BJP, BSP, ADMK, TC, RSS, DMK, IUML, VHP, JD, JDU are the criminals who igned this auto driver???????????

                              And which party is paying to speak rubbish on news forums. Violence is nothing new to BJP and that even the most ardent supporters of BJP know it.You can support a party because you thinks its good, but don't support henous acts of your part just because you support them.

                                            Attacks by Congress and your community also got a bad name for others. Auto driver and office boy who attacked Keju and Yadav belonged to AAP only. So don't show your smartness.
