Jaipur: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Shazia Ilmi, who was attacked with stones during a rally in Madya Pradesh, said frequent attacks on party leaders showed the panic among their rivals.

"I was in Neemuch (MP) last night for a road show where we were attacked with stones by people shouting slogans in support of Narendra Modi. Policemen did nothing to protect us.

"This is a dangerous trend and I fear that our people would be attacked during polling also," Ilmi claimed.

"The rivals are in panic and they are becoming violent," she said at a press conference here.

Ilmi alleged that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had copied Arvind Kejriwal by not shifting to official residence after coming to power last year.

"But she does not tell what her government has done in past four months," she said.
