"I am your guilty, Megha. I could not prevent the death of your father. I hope you are able to forgive me for your father's death," Ashutosh broke down and said to her on television as per a Indiatoday report.
This happened while a panel discussion on Aaj Tak in which AAP leader Ashutosh, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra were there along with Gajender's daughter on phoneline.
AAP spokesperson Ashutosh came to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's defence after he was criticised from all side for continuing with speech despite a farmer committed suicide during AAP rally.
The AAP spokesperson came up with a sarcasm and told media persons, "AAP men do not know to climb tree. If next time any such incident takes place, Delhi CM will himself climb trees to save the lives."
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."
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.
