Gajendra's brother seeks action against AAP leaders, says Manish Sisodia invited him for AAP rally

New Delhi: While the blame game between political parties is underway, Gajendra Singh's brother on Thursday demanded action to be taken against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders immediately. Accusing AAP and the other leaders present at the AAP rally at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday for his brother's death, he said that an elaborate drama was played out.

"All leaders should have tried to save Gajendra. If immediate action would have been taken my brother would have been alive today. Such people do not deserve to be in politics," said a grief stricken Singh's brother.

He also accused Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia to have known about the incident. "Sisodia had asked Gajendra to attend the rally," he accused.

The 41-year-old Singh, a father of three, committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree in public view at an AAP rally on Wednesday in the presence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The last rites of farmer Gajendra Singh were conducted at his native village in Dausa in Rajasthan in the presence of a large number of villagers but just a few politicians even as Parliament debates the tragedy with leaders from almost every party expressing their shock and anger over the tragedy.
