AAP, BJP workers clash over TV debate in Delhi
Saturday January 3, 2015 10:24 PM, IANS

At least five people were injured Saturday in a clash between AAP and BJP workers following a debate show on a Hindi television channel, police said.

The clash broke out over an issue after the debate show in Tughlakabad area of south Delhi.

Workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Aam Aadmi Party pushed each other and pelted stones. Both the parties accused each other of abusing and using derogatory remarks.

The vehicle of an AAP candidate was also torched in the incident. Police immediately cordoned off the area and rushed the injured persons to the hospital.

Police said five persons suffered injuries during the clash. They were also verifying the allegations.

The AAP strongly condemned the clash and said that its members were attacked by the "hired goons" of BJP parliamentarian Ramesh Bidhuri.

"The hired goons of the BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri, attacked our volunteers and burnt the vehicle of AAP candidate Sahi Ram," a party statement said.

"The violence unleashed by the BJP on AAP volunteers is a clear indication that it wants to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere in the national capital ahead of the assembly election," it said.

Ramesh Bidhuri, however said the AAP men attacked his nephew and three BJP members after the debate.

"At least 20 people attacked our men. AAP men have themselves set the car on fire and blamed us for it," Biduri told IANS.
