In the history of Indian Politics, AAP has emerged on the top as the leaders are being targeted for ink attacks and the party always blame BJP for the ink attacks. A question arises in everyone’s mind that why AAP leaders victimised, and they blame BJP only?

It’s just a stunt to gain political mileage or divert the attention of public from the core issues. A creative uploaded on Aam Aadmi Party-Punjab projected the Chief Minister of Arvind Kejriwal as a hero. A two liner has been describing that the party would write the new chapter of revolution with the ink thrown at Arvind Kejriwal and blaming BJP for the attacks.

The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia was the victim last week when he was briefing the media about his meeting with LG Najeeb Jung. The national capital has been witnessing tough time as Dengue and Chikungunya broke out in the state. At least 18 people died because of the disease.

When the disease broke out in the state, the entire AAP cabinet was touring in other states for upcoming assembly polls. The Chief Minister was in Bengaluru so his deputy Sisodia was supposed to handle the responsibility of Delhi. However, the Deputy Chief Minister was enjoying holidays in Finland.

Najeeb Jang wrote a letter to Sisodia and called him at his residence to explain the situation of the state and the measures taken by Delhi government. Suddenly, a person hurled ink at Sisodia during the media briefing.

The party blamed BJP’s hand behind the ink attack. However, the facts speak something different. The accused Brajesh Shukla is an old critic of AAP party, and moreover, he was angry because Sisodia was in Finland when the disease broke out in the state. Shukla told the police that Sisodia should have cancelled his tour as the health care facilities in government hospitals are not up to the mark.

However, this was not only the first attack on AAP leader. In April 2016, a man threw a shoe at Arvind Kejriwal when he was announcing the next round of the odd-even scheme. The thrower used to work in AAP party and later formed his group.

It is evident that the Odd-Even scheme was a failure and shoe throwing was stage-managed by AAP party. In January 2016, a woman threw ink at Kejriwal in thanksgiving rally for Odd-Even pilot project.  The woman has easily reached on the stage and threw ink. In fact, Kejriwal himself told his commandoes not to come near the stage. At least 60 armed commandoes with Delhi police were guarding him at that time and how come it was so easy for a woman to come closer to Kejriwal. And the party had blamed BJP for the ink attack.

In 2014, a person attacked Kejriwal during the poll campaign at Varanasi when he contested against Prime Minister Narendra Modi fro the same constituency. Kejriwal not only had ink thrown at him, but the people egged his car. So, it was so difficult to defeat a candidate who successfully became the CM of Gujrat state. The attack was stage-managed to get the political mileage only.
