Bhushan accuses BJP, Says attack reflects their frustration
New Delhi, Jan 8: The Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan blamed BJP, Sangh parivar for attack on AAP's Kausambi office on Wednesday.

"The attack reflects their frustration", he said.

The BJP was quick to hit back saying Bhushan's allegation is an attempt to malign BJP.

The office of AAP was ransacked in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh around 11 am on Wednesday. Reports said 35-40 unidentified men pelted stones at the office which didn't have much security arrangements in place. The Hindu Raksha Dal is allegedly behind the attack.

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, however, alleged that right-wing forces including the BJP and the Sri Ram Sena was responsible for the attack.

The attackers vandalised flower pots and abused Dilip Pandey, an AAP leader, who was present on the spot. They also misbehaved with the women, sources in the AAP said.

They also threatened to attack AAP leaders in the future before leaving the spot, an IANS report said.

"All our volunteers were asked to get inside (the office) when the attack took place," Pandey said, adding the attackers raised slogans against a particular community. Sources said that the attack was carried out in protest against AAP leader Prashant Bhushan's recent statement on seeking a referendum on army rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

The AAP office at Kaushambi is located not far from the personal residence of Arvind Kejriwal, AAP leader and currently the chief minister of Delhi.
