No Clue About Arvind Kejriwal's Missing WagonR, Party Offers Award

Arvind Kejriwal used the blue WagonR to campaign during his early days in Delhi politics.


New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Delhi Chief Minister's iconic car stolen from outside government HQ
  2. Police examines CCTV footage, so far no clues
  3. Haryana leader of AAP offers reward for clues, no amount stated
With no sign of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's blue WagonR which was stolen yesterday, his Aam Aadmi Party or AAP has offered a reward - amount undisclosed - for any information that can lead to the hatchback.

"I want this car back. There are a lot of emotions, memories attached to it. Whoever returns the car, I will give him a suitable reward, which will be much more than what he will get from selling the car," announced AAP's Naveen Jaihind, a senior leader from Haryana. But his offer may fail to enthuse a response since he did not disclose the amount he's offering as a reward.

Mr Jaihand had borrowed the car from the Chief Minister to campaign in 2014; he lost the parliamentary election.

Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal's Maruti WagonR was dubbed the "AAP Mobile"

Yesterday, the WagonR, which is circulated among AAP leaders, was parked outside the Delhi government headquarters by its current user - Vandana Singh, a youth wing leader. Three hours later, at about 2 pm, it was reported missing.

The Chief Minister, who tenants an uneasy relationship with the Delhi Police, tweeted to ask "dhyan kidhar hai", upbraiding it for negligence.

The police in the capital reports not to him, but to the union Home Ministry, one of many stress points between AAP and the centre.

The WagonR was an essential part of Mr Kejriwal's image as an everyday man. During a protest against the police in 2014 in the heart of the capital, he held a cabinet meeting in the "AAP Mobile"; at night, he slept next to it on the pavement during his sit-in, a much-photographed moment.

Many AAP workers have been posting videos of him using the car. It was donated to him in 2013 by an NRI supporter. 

The police is scanning CCTV footage to uncover clues about the thief.
