This comes days after a man allegedly threw chilli powder at Kejriwal outside his office in the Secretariat. The man had packed the chilli powder in a cigarette  packet. Following the incident, the Aam Aadmi Party had blamed both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Delhi Police accusing them of protecting the attacker.

“They all want to kill me. There would not be any CM, who has been attacked four times in two years. I have become eyesore for them,” Kejriwal had said.

Hitting out at Delhi police and Narendra Modi-led Centre,  AAP’s national spokespersons Saurabh Bharadwaj had said,“Rogue elements who are attacking the Delhi Chief Minister are backed by the BJP. They wanted to attack the Chief Minister even on the inauguration of Signature Bridge. The message from the Central Government and the Delhi Police is clear – anyone can attack the Delhi CM. The attacker will be protected by police and no action will be taken.”

Earlier, the Delhi CM was attacked with ink, shoes and slippers while campaigning for elections.
