New Delhi: High drama was witnessed at the AICC headquarters here on Monday when a person posing as a journalist tried to attack party general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi with a shoe, apparently miffed over the treatment meted out to Ramdev.
The person, who was carrying an identification as Sunil Kumar of Nav-Sanchar Patrika from Rajasthan, came close to Dwivedi, removed his shoe and stopped short of hitting him with it.
The middle-aged man, wearing a striped T-shirt, was heard telling Dwivedi that “you cannot stop us from asking questions.”
The man was immediately caught by the a AICC staffer and some journalists and was removed from the briefing hall while being beaten up. He was then taken away by police.
Dwivedi described the incident as “pre-planned” attack as he was to speak against Ramdev and his agitation which Congress leader said was conducted at the behest of Sangh Parivar.
“Whatever, I said has been proved by this one man. Had this (attack) not been orchestrated, the person would not have asked favourable questions so that there were no doubts,” he said.
