Is Kejriwal so dumb to understand the reason for him being slapped?
A visibly swollen and sunken Arvind Kejriwal after being slapped on his face by an auto rickshaw driver tweeted, "I am just thinking - why am I being repeatedly attacked? Who are the masterminds? What do they want? What do they achieve??'' The slap incident took place during a road show in Sultanpuri area in Northwest Delhi yesterday.

This was not for the first time that the leader was slapped, but it was second such attack on Kejriwal in the last four days. He was also attacked by a 19-year-old youth while campaigning in Dakshinpuri area of South Delhi on Friday.

In fact Kejriwal has been attacked a number of times in the past as well. On March 28, he was attacked in his election rally in Haryana. During his visit to Varanasi, eggs were thrown at him.

As expected he started orchestrating the blame game and directed his resentment at BJP after the attack, throwing charges on Modi and BJP. Kejriwal also stated that he does not understand why people resort to violence to become the PM of India.

Is he really so dumb to understand why is he getting repeatedly slapped?

As per my knowledge, he is an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and a former civil service employee, which means that he has some aptitude and sense. Then what's the rocket science in understanding behind these "eggs, ink, slaps and punches?" Did he forget when Sharad Pawar was slapped what he had termed it then?

Let me remind him - he had termed it as "Logon Ka Gussa" (Anger of People) and he was right that time also. People were annoyed at him. When people supported you, it was an Aam Aadmi revolution and now when people are angry at you, it's a political conspiracy?

In fact how can he ignore the fact that he and his party have actually endorsed such people doing such acts? The best example is Jarnail Singh "famous for throwing shoe at Chidambaram" AAP candidate from West Delhi. This is called the Circle of Life.

Is there anything astronomical in all these ugly turn of events? Even a nursery kid can see and understand the frustration and fury of people who were involved in such acts with AK, which could be reflective of severe disenchantment and bitterness of people with AAP in Delhi (Logon Ka Gussa).

And on what logic is he blaming the BJP, Modi or Congress. With polls on 10th April, have these seasoned politicians or parties lost their mind to involve in such small acts? There should be a limit to logical fallacy, seriously!

Interestingly there has been no FIR against anybody doing such acts. Why didn't he register an FIR? Isn?t it not necessary to go for investigation? Why not - is it because - as many people feel these are AAP?s self scripted attacks to grab attention?

Honestly, I strongly feel IITs certainly have to revisit their criteria for awarding degrees. It is really a disgrace if person like AK who can't even think at the level of a primary school child can get degree from there.

Any act of violence is always condemnable. Democracy never entertains violence. But democracy also does not entertain disillusioning people and cheating them.

At least in the last two attacks, desperation and frustration of common people with AAP and Kejriwal is clearly evident. Instead of a public show offs of Dhyan or Dharna, Kejriwal should revisit his soul immediately in tranquility and find out answers where he went wrong. Else, in the near future he could be a subject of uglier scene as well. People are really angry with Kejriwal.

इस खुजली को कुछ काम नहीं है क्या? कहन तो मोदी के खिलाफ चुनाव की बात करता है और यहाँ देल्ली में अपने को थप्पड़ मारने वाले के घर चाय पीने जा रहा है! लगता है इसकी अम्मा सोनिया ने थप्पड़ खाने के लिये भी इसको पैसे दिये हैं. शर्म करो आप वालों और अभी भी अगर तुम्हारी आखें नहीं खुली तो खुजली जैसे नक्सली इस देश को बर्बाद कर देंगे. वैसे भी यह तो शुरुआत है. चुनाव खत्म होने दे खुजली, फिर देख दिल्ली वाले तेरा क्या हाल करते हैं.
