My car attacked with sticks and stones in Ludhiana. Front glass pane broken. Badals n congress nervous? They can’t break my spirits,” the Delhi Chief Minister said on twitter.
Kejriwal was in the city on the last day of his five-day tour of Punjab during which he visited various cities including Jalandhar, Amritsar, Ferozepur, Sangrur and Bathinda to reach out to people ahead of 2017 Assembly polls.
His party claimed that he had a narrow escape. “The attackers came within an inch of grievously injuring Kejriwal. It was by only God’s grace that he escaped unhurt,” tweeted AAP leader Ashish Khetan.
Mr Khetan called it a “well-orchestrated attack” and alleged that “the goons were sent by Badals” and the police stood by doing nothing.
Mr Kejriwal is on a five-day visit to Punjab, which goes to polls later this year.
On Friday, he faced black flags and protests by reported Akali Dal and BJP workers during a public meeting at Chandigarh.
Mr Kejriwal hit out at political rivals and said he would “go to the villages and homes of people” instead of making manifestos in air-conditioned rooms.
AAP is looking to make a big splash in Punjab after it won four Parliament seats in 2014.
