The man, arrested on Monday for throwing ink on deputy CM Manish Sisodia, has been engaged in a legal tussle with Arvind Kejriwal alleging that the Delhi chief minister had misled people by saying the municipal corporations were not under his government’s control.
The man, identified as Brijesh Shukla, had filed a criminal complaint seeking lodging of an FIR against Kejriwal in a Delhi court which has kept the matter for October 18 for hearing further arguments.
Shukla, president of Swaraj Janta Party, had claimed in his plea that Kejriwal had come out with full-page advertisement in newspapers in October last saying it was wrong to say that the municipal corporations fell under the Delhi government’s jurisdiction.
His counsel had earlier argued that public money was wasted for “spreading lies” and misleading the people.
Shukla was today arrested by Delhi Police for throwing ink on Sisodia when he was getting into his car outside LG Office. The resident of Karawal Nagar in North East Delhi had claimed he was angry at the Deputy Chief Minister for his Finland tour at a time when the city was grappling with a health crisis.
