A auto used by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier was stolen here on Thursday and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) later slammed the Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal for the "poor" law and order situation in the city. FIR has been registered.
Later in the day, AAP Chief Spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said "Chief Minister's personal auto was stolen today" and added that "there can never be a bigger question mark on the law and order situation (of Delhi)". One theory doing the rounds is that the vehicle may have been stolen purposefully to show Kejriwal in a weak spot.
Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has a lot of supporters from middle class income groups, and this is exactly why the Wagon R was being used extensively to create a favorable image of AAP among the masses. "It went missing around 1 pm", a senior police official said. "The Car earlier belonged to CM Delhi", said DCP (Central Delhi) on stolen car. The Wagon R is one of the most widely used cars by the middle class households in India. The same happened when Arvind Kejriwal's "AAPmobile" which is a symbol of commitment towards fighting the VIP culture with simplicity was stolen. The Delhi CM has been using this auto since he campaigning for the elections and made a decision to continue to ride in the same even after becoming the CM.
