Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Thursday challenged AAP convener and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as well as Delhi Congress chief Subhash Chopra for a discussion on the new citizenship law.
Over the last few days, Delhi has witnessed relentless protests over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) with some of them at Jamia Nagar and Seelampur turning violent.
The BJP, AAP and Congress have indulged in an intense blamegame over the agitations and the subsequent police action.
In a tweet, Tiwari asked Kejriwal and Chopra to “rise above politics” and “clear doubts and confusion” of the Muslim community over the Citizenship Act. He tweeted
“If they do not come… their pictures will be put on a chair and I will read out the CAA provisions for the people present there,” Tiwari said.
“I am deeply saddened by the ongoing protests against CAA. No citizen of India will be sent anywhere. This country belongs to every Indian…,” Tiwari said further.
The BJP in turn has accused the two parties of spreading “rumours” about the law.
