Arvind Kejriwal’s blue WagonR stolen, AAP leader announces reward

New Delhi: The famous blue Wagon R used by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been reported stolen from right outside the government’s headquarters in the Indian capital on Thursday.

A day later, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) remains clueless as to where might be with Naveen Jaihind, a senior AAP leader from Haryana, announcing a reward for anyone who provides information about the car.

The Delhi police have registered a case and investigations are on.

“We received the complaint at around 3:30 pm today after which we started investigating into the case,” said Mandeep Randhawa, Deputy Commissioner of police.

When asked about the guards or security around CM’s car, the officer said that they are checking all the factors and will be able to ascertain the modus once the prima facie investigation is done. “The investigation has just started and we will be able to get more details in the further course of time,” he added.

The Wagon R, gifted by an Indian living abroad, was dubbed the “AAP Mobile” and got plenty of mileage in the news when the Chief Minister used it to camp and sleep in during a controversial protest against the Delhi Police in 2014.

Naveen Jaihind was quoted as saying that AAP leaders had a lot of emotions and memories attached to the car and they want it back.

While Jaihind did not disclose the amount of the reward, he said it would be more that one would get by selling the car.

It may be noted that Jaihand too had used the car for election campaign in the run-up to 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

The car made headlines when AAP used it while campaigning for the chief minister’s post which he won in January 2014.

The news has made social media lose its calm with “Wagon R” a trending topic on Twitter.
