Ludhiana: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had a narrow escape on Monday when some men armed with iron rods attacked his car here coming "within an inch of grievously injuring" him the AAP said.

Kejriwal whose five-day tour of Punjab ends later in the day tweeted that his car was attacked with sticks and stones breaking the front glass pane.

"Badals and Congress nervous? They can't break my spirits" the Aam Aadmi Party leader added.

AAP leader Ashish Khetan called it a "well orchestrated attack" and said the "goons sent by Badals attacked Kejriwal's car with stones and rods as police stood by.

"The attackers came within an inch of grievously injuring Kejriwal. It was only by god's grace that he escaped unhurt" Khetan added.

The AAP gave no further details. It was not immediately clear if Kejriwal who usually sits to the left of the driver continued with his journey or not.

The AAP put out a photograph showing the shattered front glass pane with a visibly worried Punjab police officer standing close by. The car appeared to be stranded on a rural road with a police vehicle in the front.

The AAP has emerged as a major player ahead of assembly elections in Punjab due next year.
