BJP MP from North East Delhi and Former Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari was rushed to Safadarjung hospital after being hit by a water canon during a demonstration in front of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal`s residence.

Tiwari climbed on the barricade when the police used water canon to disperse the protestors which hit Tiwari.

The state BJP president Adesh Gupta and Mr Tiwari today was leading a massive protest demonstration against the anti-cultural Kejriwal government’s decision to ban celebrations of Chhath festivities in the city near the chief minister’s residence.

A large number of protestors from poorvanchal morcha of the party rent the air with anti-Kejriwal slogans and demanded the decision be reviewed.

Beside Manoj Tiwari, General Secretary SDinesh Pratap Singh and Poorvanchal Morcha President Kaushal Mishra, B N Mishra, Prabhash Chandra, Nivedita Tiwari, Rohit Kumar Singh, Abhishekh Dubey, Shri Prince Singh, sustained injuries as police used water cannons to prevent them from going ahead. One of them Shalendra Singh sustained major head injury.

Manoj Tiwari has been admitted in the emergency ward of Safdarjung Hospital. He has received injuries on his neck, and head. He was also under gone for a city scan। However doctors said that he has received injuries but out of danger.

“He has been admitted in the emergency ward of Safdarjung Hospital and is under treatment,” Neelkant Bakshi, a BJP leader said.

For past one week, Tiwari has been demanding lifting of ban on Chhath puja and has also started ‘Chhath Yatra’ to mobilize people against the ban.

Addressing the protestors, Gupta charged the Kejriwal-led Delhi government with being anti-Hindu and added it is rather strange to put a ban on Chhath puja celebrations when markets, shops, cinema halls and even swimming pools in Delhi are open. He assured that while Kejriwal government may not make arrangements for the chhath pooja, but the BJP- governed corporations will make adequate arrangements for our poorvanchalis brothers and sisters so that they can celebrate the festival .
