AAP claims that the assaulter Ankit Bhardwaj is associated to the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha. Ankit Bhardwaj, the man who allegedly attacked sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra on Wednesday, is a chartered accountant who sidelined his work after getting inspired by Arvind Kejriwal's politics, said a senior police officer after interrogating him.
Mishra arrived at the ACB office at 12 pm to record his statement and spent around one-and-a-half hours there. Police officials and his aides caught hold of Bhardwaj. But the Aam Aadmi Party has alleged that Ankit Bharadwaj is a member of a BJP youth wing. "We don't support violence of any kind", said AAP leader Sanjay singh.
On being asked whether the party has diverged from its original principles, Mishra told reporters that it isn't the party but four or five members who have forgotten their principles, in an veiled reference to Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia.
Mishra on Wednesday began his indefinite hunger strike, demanding details of foreign tours undertaken by five AAP leaders.More news: Boko Haram commanders released in exchange for 82 schoolgirls

His reference to the Mahatma before undertaking the fast was a reminder of not only Kejriwal's own style of agitation, it was also similar to his press conference at Gandhi's samadhi on May 7 where he accused Kejriwal of receiving Rs 2 crore in cash from Jain. He submitted a complaint to Anti Corruption Bureau and then submitted three complaints to the CBI in the water tanker scam.
"If I would have done something wrong, I would have observed everything from the hiding, like you". People around you-guards, drivers-are revealing the truth.
