Aap march for BJP office

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, along with senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, is set to lead a protest march to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters today. Kejriwal’s bold move comes in response to the recent arrest of his aide, Bibhav Kumar, in connection with the alleged assault on AAP MP Swati Maliwal. The tension between AAP and BJP has escalated, prompting Kejriwal to take a stand against what he calls the BJP’s systematic targeting of his party.

Key Details:
