AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today alleged that Tuesday’s attack on his vehicle, when he was going to Nihal Singh Wala to address a rally, was an attempt by the Badals to scare him away from Punjab. “They can never break my resolve to work for the welfare of Punjab which has been ruined during the misrule of Akalis and Congress,” he said while addressing a rally here on the fourth day of his 11-day tour of poll-bound Punjab.

Blaming the SAD-BJP government for the “deliberate” breach in his security, Kejriwal alleged, “It was an attack on me by the Badals to scare me away from Punjab.”

“I myself saw a police officer indicating towards a group of 15 to 20 people, who came rushing towards me and started attacking my vehicle with canes,” he claimed and asked, “Can someone dare to do that with the Badals in Punjab? I think it was a deliberate attack”.

“I don’t need security by the Badals, I have come here to sacrifice my life for the sake and cause of Punjab. I am ready to fight till my last breath for the people,” Kejriwal said.

Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for causing inconvenience to the people through demonetisation, he alleged, “It is the farmers, shopkeepers, women and government employees who have suffered the most and are forced to stand in the queues to withdraw their own hard-earned money.”

He alleged that Modi was only making fool of the people as demonetisation has actually benefited business tycoons.

“If Modi really has brought back black money, then the black money amassed by the Badals and those stashed by Amarinder in foreign banks should have been brought back,” he said.

On the attack on Preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale, Kejriwal asked, “If religious preachers are openly attacked, how can Badal ensure safety and security of the common man?”.

He alleged that the SAD-BJP government, which claimed to be panthic, has “failed” to arrest the culprits in a series of sacrilege incidents in the state and assured that if AAP forms government in the state the culprits will be nabbed.

Who will say that you are so much educated, no one on earth will always cry foul. Sir common, now its high time, you should start working instead of blaming Modi and others all the time. We are fed up of you, we feel so much irritated when start blaming others. U act like a baby, grow up sir.. we have voted for you do something, we don't want to hear what modi is doing or who has black money.. Central government will take care of it. You look after Delhi first and improve its condition
