For the second time, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had ink thrown at him in Bikaner while visiting former party treasurer Krishna Kant Seveda. Reportedly, those who threw the ink were members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), who were angry at the CM for his comments on the Indian Army and the surgical strikes carried out by in India across the LOC.

In a video released online, Kejriwal had urged the Centre to put an end to the ‘false propaganda’ by Pakistan by providing evidence on the surgical strikes that carried out by the Indian Army on September 29.

The last time a similar incident had happened, it was by a woman, when Kejriwal was addressing a gathering on the success of odd-even scheme in the Capital.

Of the three youths who had attacked the CM, two have been detained and third fled. “The chief minister was coming out of the home of former party treasurer Krishna Kant Seveda. He had barely stepped out when three youths hurled ink at him, along with the bottles, which landed on him and those standing nearby. One person managed to flee while two were apprehended,” party worker Prashant Kumar was quoted as saying.

Responding to the attack, Kejriwal tweeted, “Hmmm… God bless those who threw ink at me. I wish them well,” and people on social media couldn’t stop themselves from commenting. While some mocked him, some said it’s a regular occurrence.
