Ved Prakash of the Aam Aadmi Sena threw the shoe at Kejriwal, alleging fake CNG stickers were being distributed in Delhi ahead of the Odd-Even vehicular scheme. He said he had a video evidence of the “scam”. The man has been detained by police after the incident.
Cars running on CNG are exempt from the Odd-Even scheme.
Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai condemned the incident, saying it “would not deter our aim to provide good governance and our commitment towards a cleaner environment”.
“It’s an act done by a frustrated man. Incidents like these keep on happening,” he added.
Earlier, Bhawana Arora of the same little-known group had thrown ink on Kejriwal’s face at a event held to celebrate the success of the first phase of the Odd-Even motor rationing scheme at a stadium here in January.
