    Ahmedabad, Aug 17 (PTI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)office here was today vandalised by members of a little knownBrahmin outfit, which has claimed responsibility for the act. The outfit, Brahma Padkar Group, said it attacked theparty office to protest against a "derogatory" statement madeagainst Brahmin community by an AAP member at Una. Head of Brahma Padkar Group, Amrish Jani said, "AAPparty worker from Una, Sangeeta Chadpa, had used derogatorywords against Brahmins during her address there. Our demandwas that she should be expelled from the party. But since itwas not fulfilled, we registered our protest." AAP meanwhile alleged that the attack was organised by"BJP-sponsored goons", in which plastic chairs, glass cabins,a fan, a fax machine were among the items that were broken. "Around ten persons entered our office and without anyprovocation, they started breaking glass cabins of theconference room, chairs, table, fax machine and other itemsplaced there," said party spokesperson Harshil Nayak.

The AAP had started functioning from the office arounda month back even as it tries to expand its base in the statein view of the Gujarat Assembly election in 2017. Nayak said the daylight attack, despite having apolice station in the vicinity, indicated that the attackershad the backing of the ruling BJP government. "BJP goons are behind the attack. They are resortingto their tried and tested tactic of intimidating the opponentsinto submission through threats and attacks like these," hesaid.
