The Aam Aadmi Party AAP claimed on Friday (January 31) that the BJP is planning a 'big disturbance' on February 2 in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Millia Islamia, where anti-CAA protests are underway and urged the Election Commission to take cognisance.
The Aam Aadmi Party AAP claimed on Friday (January 31) that the BJP is planning a ‘big disturbance’ on February 2 in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Millia Islamia, where anti-CAA protests are underway and urged the Election Commission to take cognisance.
Delhi BJP’s media in-charge for polls Ashok Goyal, however, dismissed the claim as ‘nonsensical’.
Speaking to reporters, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh claimed that he had proof and would approach the EC. “I have proof. A lot of messages and videos are doing the rounds on WhatsApp. We are planning to approach the Election Commission with the proof,” he said.
In his response, Goyal said the AAP was staring at a certain defeat in the Delhi polls and hence, was issuing “nonsensical” statements.”(Delhi Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal, (Pakistan Prime Minister) Imran Khan and (Pakistan minister) Fawad Hussain are speaking the same language. They want to defeat Modi. Shaheen Bagh is AAP’s own creation. They are staring at a certain defeat in Delhi polls so they issuing nonsense statements,” Goyal said.
Singh, a Rajya Sabha MP, further claimed that Union Home Minister Amit Shah was behind the disturbance in Delhi. “He encouraged a BJP minister to deliver hate speech and then violence breaks. A man walks openly with a gun in public and opens fire,” he told reporters.
“Shah is controlling the Delhi Police’s hand. Law and order has gone from bad to worse after Shah took over. Now, they plan to do something big on February 2 at Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Millia Islamia. I wish to warn the people and the Election Commission,” the AAP leader added.
He further claimed that the BJP was set to lose in the Delhi polls and hence, wanted to “postpone the elections” by disturbing the atmosphere.
AAP to hold silent march against BJP’s Parvesh Verma
The Aam Aadmi Party will hold silent march across all 70 assembly constituencies in Delhi till Sunday to protest against BJP MP Parvesh Verma over his alleged remarks that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is a “terrorist”. AAP candidate Raghav Chadha led one such march in Rajender Nagar on Friday.
The AAP, in a statement, said it will go door to door to tell people that if they feel that Kejriwal is a son of Delhi, they should vote for him and if they believe that he is a terrorist, they should vote for the BJP.
Over the next few days, the party volunteers will be on the ground, connecting with the voters and seeking their disapproval of the “hate remarks” made by the BJP.
Verma, addressing an election meeting in Madipur Assembly constituency, had reportedly said, “Kejriwal jaise natwarlal, Kejriwal jaise atankwadi is desh mein chhupe baithe hain (Natwarlals and terrorists like Kejriwal are hiding in this country).”
