New Delhi, Jun 29 (PTI) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday alleged that BJP leaders and 'goons' vandalised his official vehicle while protesting the construction of a school in Rohtas Nagar.
The BJP in counter allegation claimed attack on its workers and accused Sisodia of using 'intemperate' language against them.
Sisodia also alleged that the BJP men ransacked the school and misbehaved with engineers and teachers there.
'BJP leaders and goons protesting construction of school in Rohtas Nagar sabotaged the school and vandalised my official vehicle. They misbehaved with female teachers, engineers and workers by breaking into the school. Why the BJP people are so much irritated by education,' Sisodia, who holds the education portfolio, tweeted in Hindi.
Delhi Home and PWD minister Satyendar Jain mentioned the incident in a tweet and said 'even if the BJP carried out thousands of such attacks, the AAP government will continue to serve the people'.
Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri alleged that AAP cadre had attacked and beaten BJP workers at the behest of the Deputy Chief Minister. He said the Deputy Chief Minister had gone to Rohtas Nagar to inspect the civil work on construction of a school. The Rohtas Nagar BJP MLA, Jitender Mahajan, had already conveyed to the authorities that they would submit a memorandum to Sisodia during his visit, he claimed.
The memorandum was related to termination of services of guest teachers and non-payment of salaries to teachers, and compensation of Rs 10 lakh and job to dependants of COVID-19 patients who died due to oxygen shortage, Bidhuri said.
'As soon as Mahajan made a move to submit the memorandum to Sisodia, the AAP cadre started misbehaving and beating BJP workers,' he charged.
A BJP delegation will soon meet the Delhi Police Commissioner and take up this matter with him urging fast-track investigation to punish the culprits, Bidhuri said. PTI VIT SMN SMN
