Two AAP leaders in Varanasi allegedly by BJP workers - Times of India

Out of the two, one of the member is Ankit Lal, Head of Social Media for AAP and a member of our circle. Such acts by BJP are shameful and demonstrate frustration. Hope Ankit and Nandan recover soon and come out even stronger!!

Two Aam Aadmi Party leaders were injured in an alleged attack by BJP workers in Varanasi late on Monday night. The two were campaigning at Assi Ghat when a mob of 20 people attacked them. The injured AAP leaders were rushed to the hospital.

According to reports, Ankit Lal, AAP national IT cell coordinator, and Nandan Mishra, an IITian who left his job to work for AAP, were going around the ghat along with other volunteers singing songs in favour of AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal, when a mob attacked them with sticks and rods.

The attackers fled the scene, leaving the two leaders bleeding. A complaint was later lodged at Bhelupura police station. Soon after the incident, social media was full of tweets by AAP volunteers condemning the attack. They also tweeted pictures of the two injured leaders.

AAP's UP spokesman Vaibhav Maheshwari told TOI that while Nandan's nose bone has broken, the assault damaged left ear drum of Ankit.

AAP's national spokesman Sanjay Singh accused BJP workers of attacking AAP volunteers and leaders and questioned Modi wave in the country. The incident, he said, shows that BJP is worried and frustrated by AAP's growing popularity in Varanasi. A few days back AAP leader and former minister Somnath Bharti was also attacked allegedly by BJP workers during a TV shown in Varansi.

Journalist-turned-politician and AAP leader Ashutosh tweeted "attack on AAP volunteers by BJP goons can't intimidate us but it's sad to see administration in Varanasi keeping quite. These are organized attack, fascist in nature. Modi wants a violent India."

AAP leaders also blamed the Election Commission of not taking cognizance of attacks on AAP volunteers and leaders in Varanasi.

AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal is contesting against BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Varanasi. more

When doctors, teachers and "poojaris"/priests (not self-proclaimed god-men) can be fraudulent and can have inclination towards political parties, why not EC officers? They are also human beings and can fall a prey to corrupt practices!

Probably corruption is the single most deadly and democracy-threatening ailment of India as a nation and political parties who have tasted and are happy with corrupt procedures, cannot live without it. They are ready to take one rupee as salary to show to the world that they do not care for money when they mint millions of rupees every month though various corrupt and unscrupulous means.

What AAP has embarked up on is the trump card of all political parties and even apolitical administrators who cannot do away with corruption. Anti-graft (anti-corruption) legislation for detecting corruption and legislating punishments have to be drafted very carefully involving intelligencia so that even good and straightforward people should not fall into a trap of corrupt people and deterrents and punishments should be strong/severe enough to prevent even the thought of corruption. more  
The persons, who have committed this dastardly act, must be gloating over their cowardliness, also getting pats on their backs from their seniors, because none from the BJP has come out in condemnation of this despicable act-a blot on our other wise largely peaceful election campaigning. Its the betrayal of the mind set-success at all cost & fair play be damned! This indicates a mere superficial commitment to democracy, but who is bothered?! more  
IT IS REALLY A SHAMEFUL ACT OF ATTACKERS.I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND AS TO WHY NO
ACTION IS TAKEN AGAINST SUCH MISCREANTS.I WISH THESE LEADERS A SPEEDY
RECOVERY.

There is apparently no Modi wave, but there is a wave of BJP violence & frustration which is aimed only at AAP . The EC ought to send a senior observer to Varanasi to oversee matters. We must not forget all are watching the Varanasi election and if Modiji wins, by employing muscle, and a 56 inch chest, India will lose though AK will emerge as a hero of democracy; not to forget, this is not the last election, to be won what ever the cost! more  
DEAR SYED JI, THOROUGH CHANGE WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER SOME MONTHS OR YEARS, BUT IT IS ASSURED. ALL CORRUPT ONES SHALL HAVE TO PAY FOR IT. "SAU SUNAAR KI EK LAUHAAR KI". WE WILL WIN AFTER WE HAVE UNITED IN MOST MAJORITY. THAT DAY WILL BE WRITABLE & WILL BE THE INSTANCE FOR WHOLE OF THE WORLD TO LEARN FROM US. more
