Goyal's graffiti led to a controversy and a war of words between the AAP and the BJP. AAP MP Sanjay Singh had alleged that the BJP was involved in the matter.

"The BJP has been in a state of panic ever since Arvind Kejriwal came out of jail. The BJP is now plotting to launch a deadly attack on Arvind Kejriwal.
