An employee at a Gurgaon-based company, Anil Sharma told the cops on camera, “Woh mera target hai. Jitni meri koshish thi, woh meine ki. Mein sacha deshbhakt hun (I am a patriot).
The BJP’s Delhi unit, however, condemned the incident. “This should not be tolerated or justified. The matter should be investigated,” Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said.
Former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav, who had a public falling out with Mr Kejriwal, spoke out against the attack. “Sad and shocked to hear about this attack. Relieved that the CM is safe and unhurt. Everyone must condemn this. Period. Blame game can wait, please. In any case, blaming the victim shows moral degradation,” he tweeted.
