AAP’s Ashutosh breaks down on live TV before Gajendra’s daughter

April24/ 2015

New Delhi, April 24: Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh broke down on live television as he talked to the daughter of Gajendra Singh, the farmer from Rajasthan who killed himself during an AAP rally at New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.

“I am your guilty, Megha. I could not prevent the death of your father,” he said crying vigorously on Aaj Tak. “I hope you are able to forgive me for your father’s death,” the journalist-turned-politician said.

“I didn’t enter politics for this kind of blame game. I want to request Rajnath Singh, Ajay Maken and Sambit Patra to stop politicising the death of a farmer,” a tearful Ashutosh said.

BJP spokesperson Patra, who was a part of the panel discussion on Aaj Tak, later said he is not interested either in politicising the issue. “I understand his tears. I don’t want to play the blame game either,” he said.

Shortly after Gajendra committed suicide at Jantar Mantar, Ashutosh in a press conference had said one could not have expected Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to himself climb the tree to save the man. He later apologised for the remark.
