Ink-attacks are not new to Aam Aadmi Party members. So when Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was “attacked” with ink on Monday while leaving Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s residence, Twitterati once again got the opportunity to troll the minister.

Sisodia returned from his official visit in Finland to New Delhi on Sunday despite Jung’s insistence on his earlier return. Reports suggest that the attacker, Brajesh Shukla, was infuriated because the deputy chief minister was travelling as the national capital battled dengue and chikungunya. Police said that Shukla has been detained and was being interrogated.

As the city continues to reel under rising cases of chikungunya and dengue, the Delhi government has launched an awareness drive apprising people on the do’s and dont’s related to dengue. The government has asked people to devote 30 minutes to check stagnant water in their residential complexes that might give rise to mosquito-breeding.

Despite the in-your-face advertisements, CM Arvind Kejriwal and his party members have been facing a lot of flak for the capital’s heath crisis.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:

Issuing a clarion call to fight dengue and chikungunya, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain had appealed to Delhiites on Saturday, saying, “There are 42 lakh households in Delhi, and if all of you cooperate then we can together root out dengue and chikungunya from the city.”
