Arvind Kejriwal attacked with shoe at AAP rally in Rohtak

New Year Day shocker Shoe hurled at Delhi CM Kejriwal in Rohtak

The incident happened when Kejriwal was speaking at "Tijori Tod Bhanda Fod" rally against demonetisation, during which he targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The alleged shoe-thrower Vikas, a resident of Haryana's Dadri, was overpowered by AAP volunteers and eventually handed to the police.

With ten Delhi metro stations going "cashless" from today, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he will be seeking an inquiry and also look into the files leading to the decision taken "forcefully", an allegation earlier denied by DMRC.

Kejriwal also denounced Delhi Metro's fiat that only Paytm transactions would be considered valid in select metro stations.

Kejriwal's rivals have tried to attack him with shoe and ink on several occasions in the past.

He said after all the hardships that people endured, none of the stated objectives in Modi's November 8 speech were achieved. In January past year a woman had thrown ink at Kejriwal.

The shoe did not hit the AAP chief and landed on the edge of the dais. Kejriwal also targeted Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar and ex-CM Bhupinder Hooda, accusing them of creating a divide in the society. He warned Modi that his fight to expose the prime minister both on demonetization and the latter's involvement in Sahara/Birla bribery case will continue.

"Mr. Modi has demanded 50 days to implement the exercise, but there's no sign of people recovering from its aftershocks", Mr. Kejriwal had said on Friday. "Then why are you scared of a probe?" "He has become a subject of ridicule internationally", Kejriwal tweeted.
