Arvind Kejriwal says 'God bless them' after 2 men throw ink at him

Two ABVP activists were taken into custody after the ink attack.

Two ABVP activists threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his comments on India army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the LoC.

The ABVP activists on Tuesday raised slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party national convener and threw ink at him in Bikaner district in Rajasthan.

Following the ink attack, ABVP activists Dinesh Ojha and Vikram Singh were taken into custody.

Kejriwal was in Bikaner to visit the house of AAP worker Hiralal Sevta to console him on his wife’s death.

Reacting to the ink attack, Kejriwal tweeted, “Hmmm… God bless those who threw ink at me. I wish them well,” he tweeted last night.

Earlier, several activists of a right-wing group had showed black flags to Kejriwal in Nokha town when he was on his way to Bikaner from Jodhpur.

While Kejriwal, in a rare gesture, “saluted” Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the surgical strikes by the Army on terror launch pads across the LoC, he urged the Centre to counter the smear campaign by Pakistan and international media.

BJP alleged that Kejriwal had in the garb of his statement questioned the Army’s “assertion” on surgical strike and “insulted” the armed forces.

Claiming that Kejriwal “sought proof” on the anti-terror operation, the BJP had asked him not to belittle the armed forces by getting influenced by Pakistani “propaganda”.
