When BJP goons attacked me

AAP volunteer attacked

We were sitting in a car stuck in traffic near Ravidas gate, Lanka. Around 200-300 BJP workers surrounded our car and started banging on its glass windows. Those hooligans dressed in saffron caps and scarfs seemed to be scary. They were chanting modi....modi... and hitting our vehicle with their fists. If it would not have been Tata Safari, the glass panes would have got broken by the physical force of these 200 men. We three volunteers sitting in the car were terrified.
