BJP’s Yogi and Javadekar call Kejriwal ‘terrorist’

Kapil Mishra says AAP should be renamed to Muslim League

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh on Sunday demanded that the Election Commission (EC) ban Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath from campaigning in the national capital over his allegedly provocative speeches and also demanded that an FIR be lodged against him.

 

 

At a rally on February 1, the UP CM had allegedly stated that those who supported terrorists were the ones who were staging a protest at Shaheen Bagh and raising slogans of ‘azaadi’.

 

 

Later, Sanjay Singh told reporters at a press conference that it had been 48 hours since the AAP had asked the EC to meet them, but their request hadn’t been considered.

He had said, “If the EC does not give us time, we will stage a sit-in in front of the ECI office on Monday.”

 

 

However, the terrorist trope against Kejriwal doesn’t seem to die down. After BJP Minister Parvesh Varma allegedly called Kejriwal a terrorist and was banned from campaigning by the EC, his words have now been reportedly repeated by BJP election-in-charge Prakash Javadekar who also asserted that there was “plenty of evidence” to prove the claim.

 

 

After this statement, Sanjay Singh tweeted to BJP saying that if they had proof of Kejriwal being a terrorist, they should dare to arrest him.

 

 

Not only this, BJP leader Kapil Mishra too once again made a contentious remark when he said that the AAP should be renamed to ‘Muslim League’ and accused them of doing ‘Jinnah politics’.

Kapil Mishra had been banned by the EC from campaigning for the elections for 48 hours after he had said that Delhi would witness India v/s Pakistan on February 8, the day of the assembly elections.

The situation in Delhi has worsened after back-to-back incidents of firing on peaceful protestors, first near Jamia Millia Islamia University and then at Shaheen Bagh. With provocative speeches instigating the right-wingers to take law into their own hands, Delhi has become a hotbed for violence against those protesting against the CAA-NPR-NRC
