Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was on Monday attacked with ink outside Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s residence. Ink was thrown at Sisodia while he was speaking with the media after leaving LG Najeeb Jung’s residence. Sisodia had gone to meet Jung soon after returning from his visit to Finland.
The attacker reportedly claimed that he had no political affiliation and did it to show his anger over absence of AAP ministers while Delhi was suffering from increased cases of Dengue in Chikungunya.
Capital’s Deputy CM returned to the city from Finland on Monday morning, as scheduled, notwithstanding the Lt Governor’s order to cut short his visit in the wake of sudden spurt in dengue and chikungunya cases in the national Capital.
Brajesh Shukla, the one who attacked Sisodia with ink, says “He is going abroad on our money and people of Delhi are suffering.”
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had on Saturday asked Sisodia to cut short his trip to Finland and immediately return to Delhi in view of the outbreak of chikungunya and dengue which trigged further tussle between the Kejriwal government and the LG office.
On the directions of Jung, Chief Secretary KK Sharma had sent an urgent fax to the Deputy Chief Minister, saying “Your kind presence is required in the NCT of Delhi to deal with emergent administrative matters.”
Refuting the allegation of the opposition that he was “holidaying” in Finland, Sisodia had on Saturday said it was not a “sin” to study the schooling system of other countries to fix the problems in Delhi’s education system.
