BJP hatching conspiracy to kill Arvind Kejriwal; Manoj Tiwari involved: Manish Sisodia

"Due to the fear of defeats in the Gujarat and MCD polls, the BJP is hatching a conspiracy to kill @ArvindKejriwal," Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday accused the BJP of hatching a conspiracy to assassinate Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, fearing poll defeats in Gujarat and the MCD, and alleged Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari’s involvement in it.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is not scared of such petty politics, he, however, said.

According to sources, Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena has directed the city police commissioner to take cognisance of the allegations.

"LG has taken note of tweets and statements by AAP leaders, including Dy CM Manish Sisodia and asked the Police Commissioner to ensure that such eventuality - orchestrated, or otherwise, does not happen, to the farthest possible extent," the sources said.

AAP in a statement said that if anything happens to Kejriwal or any other party leader, BJP should be held responsible.

"Due to the fear of defeats in the Gujarat and MCD polls, the BJP is hatching a conspiracy to kill @ArvindKejriwal," Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi.

"Their MP Manoj Tiwari is openly asking his hooligans to attack Kejriwal and he has done complete planning. The AAP is not scared of their petty politics and people will give a reply to their hooliganism," he wrote.

His remarks came in response to Tiwari's tweets earlier in the day, in which he had expressed concern over Kejriwal's security, while highlighting recent allegations of corruption and "selling of tickets" for the MCD polls.

"I am concerned about the security of Arvind Kejriwal because people and AAP volunteers are angry over sustained corruption, selling of tickets (for the MCD polls), friendship with rapist and massage in jail incidents. Their MLAs too have been thrashed. It should not happen with the chief minister of Delhi ...," the North East Delhi MP said in a tweet in Hindi.

In its statement, AAP condemned the alleged threats and said that the BJP is "horrified" by the huge public support AAP is receiving in Gujarat and Delhi.

"Threatening to kill Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister elected with a huge mandate, the man who is the national convenor of the party running governments in two states, is an insult to the people of Delhi and the country.
