Defending the conduct of his party Ashutosh said it was AAP workers who helped the Gajender Singh and admit him to the hospital.
Passing the buck to the Delhi Police another AAP leader Sanjay Singh said, "When we got to know of man who had climb the tree, Viswas appealed to the police to save the farmer."
AAP leader Kumar Vishwas said, "Police rejected our pleas to save the farmer, it was the AAP workers who took the man to the hospital."
He further added, "The news of the farmer's death come only after Arvind Kejriwal finished his speech."
Meanwhile, the BJP has alleged that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal knew that he was dead immediately after the victim was brought down from the tree.
Both the BJP as well as Congress have condemned Arvind Kejriwal's action of continuing with the speech even after a farmer committed suicide just to gain political mileage.
"This is a conspiracy by Chief Minister of Delhi. Knowing very well that he (farmer) was dead you continued with your politics for 74 minutes. I am no one to ask you questions but the people of the country and the world will ask," said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.
Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he was deeply pained to hear the news of farmer committing suicide at Jantar Mantar and even instructed Delhi Police Commissioner to institute an inquiry into it.
