Attacks on me are attacks on people of Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal
Speaking in the Delhi Assembly on Monday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief said that he has been attacked four times in the last three years but no action has been taken against his attackers involved in the incidents. The Delhi CM also said that the attacks on him are attacks on Delhi as he is a common man elected by the people.
“I have been attacked four times in the last three years. I have no standing; I am an insignificant man. I was attacked because the people of Delhi made a common man the Chief Minister. The attacks have not been made on me but the people of Delhi,” Kejriwal said.
