A car carrying Aam Admi Party leader Manish Sisodia was attacked by unidentified men on Himmatnagar highway in Sabarkantha district of Gujarat on Thursday. The party alleged that the attackers were the workers of Bharatiya Janata Party.
"Some unidentified men threw stones at Manish Sisodia's car on Himmatnagar highway," AAP Gujarat spokesperson Harshil Nayak said while Sisodia tweeted after the incident that "our car attacked by BJP goons in Himatnagar (Sabarkantha)."
However, Sabarkantha SP Chirag Koriadia said "his car was not stopped by anybody, it seems that there was no attack. What Sisodia claims is somebody threw stones from behind, we are investigating it". Local police said there was no damage to the car.
On Wednesday, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal's car was also attacked by BJP workers in the Kutch district.
The clash between the two parties began with a group of AAP workers staging demonstration outside the BJP office in Delhi protesting against the brief detention of Kejriwal by police in Gujarat on Wednesday.
Kejriwal and other AAP leaders are touring the state to "verify" Chief Minister Narendra Modi's claims of development.
