Mr Kejriwal tweeted, “Someone hit me hard on my neck jst now. This kind of violent reaction is expected of them. It only shows their true character n desperation (sic).”

    It s vital to identify correctly the assailant and assess his real motive.being carried away by emotions due to the seriousness of the incident ,perhaps the aam aadmi supporters will be getting played into the hands of adversaries who want to benefit from violence, which is not an AAP agenda.
