After a prominent Gujarat politician was “attacked by the BJP thugs,” Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel to punish those responsible in a late-night tweet. AAP leader Manoj Sorathiya was assaulted and injured in the state on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, and Kejriwal pleaded with his Gujarati counterpart, Bhupendra Patel, to take stern punishment against the attackers.
In response to a tweet about the event from an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member, Kejriwal remarked that although winning and losing elections is a part of politics, violently suppressing the opposition is against Gujarati tradition.
“It is wrong to criticize members of the opposition in this manner. Elections include both winning and losing, but crushing the opposition with violence is against Gujarati culture, and the public does not like it, the AAP national convenor said in a Hindi tweet.
The Gujarat state general secretary of the AAP, Manoj Sorathiya, got a head injury. The AAP leader also released pictures of him. I want the chief minister of Gujarat to safeguard everyone and guarantee that the offenders get harsh punishment.
The Delhi CM tweeted in response to an AAP member named Vikas Yogi, who claimed that “BJP goons attempted a homicidal attempt” on the Gujarat unit general secretary of the party images of Sorathiya on Twitter with what seemed to be head injuries.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), according to top AAP politician and deputy chief minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia, has once again shown its fear of Kejriwal’s efforts in the health and education sectors by assaulting Sorathiya.
Sandeep Pathak, the party’s Gujarat in-charge, said on Twitter that “BJP thugs” had assaulted Sorathiya and warned that voters would respond appropriately to the saffron party in the state Assembly election that is expected to take place later this year.
