Hours after BJP Panaji bypoll candidate Siddharth Kunkolienkar's car was attacked, the opposition refuted allegations that its workers could be behind the incident.

Kunkolienkar filed a complaint with station in the early hours of Friday after two unidentified youth threw bottles on his car.

"In the light of cowardly attack, I request my @BJP4India karyakartas and people of Panaji to remain united and calm. We will not get disturbed by such acts of #Goondagiri. Let us stay focused and work hard to ensure a @BJP4India win in Panaji with a historic margin," he tweeted Friday morning.

said his party had nothing to with the incident and, in a sarcastic vein, asked the to provide Kunkolienkar a security detail of "100 guards and five escort vehicles".

The bypoll is slated for May 19.
