NEW DELHI: Accusing Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of trying to "cover up" the alleged attack on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari today said that violence has no place in politics and administration.

Prakash has alleged that he was attacked by two Aam Aadmi Party MLAs during an official meeting at Kejriwal's residence on Monday night.

The ruling party has denied the allegations.

"Instead of taking action against the guilty MLAs, the chief minister tried to cover up the incident which shocked everyone," Tiwari said.

He accused Kejriwal of being a "mute spectator" in other similar cases, and said a few officers of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi and the Delhi Jal Board had been beaten up, but the chief minister did not take action against his MLAs.

"Similarly, a BJP delegation was (also) attacked at his residence and the chief minister remained a mute spectator," he said.

Tiwari was referring to an alleged attack on BJP leaders, who had gone to Kejriwal's residence to discuss ways to provide relief to traders hit by the sealing drive in Delhi.

The BJP had accused AAP MLAs of misbehaving with them during the meeting.

He also wondered whether the AAP MLAs had treated officials involved in sealing drive and regularising unauthorised colonies, the same way as they allegedly did with the chief secretary.

"Did the chief minister have an altercation with any officer for providing relief to the people of Delhi suffering from sealing, or his MLAs misbehaved with any officer for regularising the unauthorised colonies in Delhi," he said
