BJP on Wednesday condemned the attack on Aam Aadmi Party office near New Delhi allegedly carried out by some right-wing activists, saying no one has any right to resort to violence.
“We surely condemn the attack on AAP office, because no one has any right tio take the law unto their hands. We will never support anyone doing such an act,” party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.
She was commenting on an attack on AAP office in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad, on the outskirts of Delhi on Wednesday morning, apparently to protest against its leader Prashant Bhushan’s comment that deployment of army in Jammu and Kashmir should be on the basis of opinion of the people of the state.
Ms. Sitharaman at the same time slammed Mr. Bhushan for the comments on Kashmir.
“We also should remember Prashant Bhushan’s comments on Kashmir, which is an integral part of India. What Prashant Bhushan has said on Kashmir, we condemn that also,” she said.
Around 40 activists of Hindu Raksha Dal broke flower pots kept outside the AAP’s office and tore party posters. Some glass doors were also smashed in the attack. Police said no one was injured in the attack.
“We today staged a protest against AAP’s stand on Kashmir. AAP leader Prashant Bhushan’s remark on Kashmir are very sad for Hindus due to which we staged a protest outside the party office,” said Pinky Choudhary, national convenor, Hindu Raksha Dal.
