AAP Worker Death: Maharashtra Minister alleges political involvement in shooting incident

NCP leader Nawab Malik said that the attack on AAP MLA Naresh Yadav and his party workers is a “serious matter” and can’t be tolerated in a democracy.


Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson, Nawab Malik on Wednesday demanded a probe into the recent attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers and an MLA in Delhi. 

The NCP leader said that the attack on AAP MLA Naresh Yadav and his party workers is a “serious matter” and can’t be tolerated in a democracy. 

While speaking to the media, Nawab Malik alleged political involvement in the attack on AAP MLA and its workers stating that it is the responsibility of the Home Ministry to arrest the culprits as soon as possible.

“The convoy of AAP MLA Naresh Yadav was attacked and one of the party workers was killed. This is a serious thing. Violence just after the election results in Delhi shows that there is some political involvement in the incident,” Malik was quoted by ANI. 

Meanwhile, the Delhi police arrested a man in connection with the attack while ruling out any political motive behind the shooting incident. The police are further investigating the matter. 

On Wednesday night, after AAP swept Delhi assembly elections with 62 seats, the convoy of party MLA Naresh Yadav was attacked leading to the death of a worker while another got injured. Four rounds of shots were fired at them, Yadav said.

Reacting to the Delhi polls result, Nawab Malik ridiculed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which managed to win only 8 seats saying that people “didn’t vote for anti-nationals”.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders had appealed to the people to not vote for anti-nationals. This is why people there voted for the AAP,” said Malik. 

The Maharashtra minister also pointed out that people are tired of BJP’s politics of hate.
