Kapil Mishra slapped during fast; AAP, BJP clash over attacker's affiliation

It said AAP workers are riled by the fact that Mishra levelled serious allegations against Kejriwal and Satyendra Jain.

Mishra alleged that the attacker, who was identified as Ankit Bhardwaj was associated with the Mohalla Clinic programme run under Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

Mr Mishra questioned the alacrity with which Mr Kejriwal's party declared the attacker a BJP man saying, "Whatever followed that incident was very unusual; the police had just taken him away when Sanjay Singh did a presser saying that the man who was trying to attack me was a BJP agent.why did you rush to lie?" However, the AAP claimed that Bhardwaj was BJP's Yuva Morcha Delhi executive committee member and retweeted a series of tweets in this regard. "Government officials are sending information to me", Mishra claimed.

BJYM "office-bearer" Bhardwaj also interacted with the media and accused AAP of hatching a conspiracy to defame the BJP.

After ousted Delhi minister Kapil Mishra was attacked by a person, while he was on a hunger strike, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said that the incident was shocking and shameful, adding that it showed how low the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) could stoop to. The police must increase Kapil Mishra's security. "I will continue to sit on hunger strike till details of global travel expenses of five AAP leaders are shared", he had said.

He claimed that the details of the foreign trips by AAP leaders would "reveal a lot" about alleged corruption by them.

Kapil Mishra who is sitting on a hunger strike questioned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's silence by singing a popular Hindi song, "Chup chup baithe ho zaroor koi baat hai".

The former Delhi water minister also wrote a letter to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal informing the latter about the attack that took place on him on Wedensday.

He had on Tuesday filed a graft complaint with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against Kejriwal, his relatives and other AAP leaders.
