Mumbai: The AAP claimed on Thursday that Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s house had been “attacked by BJP goons”.
The Delhi BJP, however, denied the allegations, stating that their protest was peaceful.
BJP workers had earlier staged an alleged conspiracy near Sisodia’s residence to kill the mayors and leaders of party-ruled municipal corporations, who had staged an indefinite dharna demanding the Kejriwal government’s bailout.
Addressing a press conference, AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj alleged that the police did not prevent the goons from entering Sisodia’s residence and also removed barricades around the house.
He also played an alleged video of the outer area of Sisodia’s residence, where a group of people can be seen forcibly entering.
Bhardwaj said, “BJP goons attacked the house of the Deputy Chief Minister when he was not at home. Delhi Police helped BJP goons in this act.”
Reacting to the allegations, Delhi BJP vice-president Ashok Goel Deora claimed that AAP leaders were trying to divert attention from the conspiracy to kill the BJP mayor and other corporate leaders.
“We protested outside Sisodia’s residence, which made it clear that BJP workers are capable of responding to any challenge,” he said.
Delhi BJP on Wednesday filed a police complaint against Sisodia and AAP leader Durgesh Pathak, alleging that they were plotting to kill leaders of party-organized municipal corporations.
