New Delhi (25/09/2019): Today, Delhi Chief Minister’s comment drew a strong reaction from BJP leader Kapil Mishra, who described the AAP National Convenor’s remark as “shameful” and “pointless”.
Arvind Kejriwal took a jibe at Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari this morning, declaring that the Bihar-born MP would be among the first required to leave the city if the NRC were to be carried out in the national capital.
Tiwari, who has frequently called for a verification drive like the one in Assam that excluded 19 million people, repeated the demand after a journalist was assaulted in a South Delhi neighbourhood on Sunday evening in an attack he attributed to “infiltrators”.
“If NRC (National Register of Citizens) is implemented in Delhi then Manoj Tiwari will be the first one who will have to leave Delhi,” Chief Minister Kejriwal told reporters today, when asked for his reaction to Tiwari’s demand.
Kejriwal’s comment drew a strong reaction from BJP leader Kapil Mishra, who rushed to record a video statement that he posted on Twitter. In the statement, Mishra, who is seen sitting in the front seat of a car wearing his seat belt, blasts the Delhi Chief Minister’s remark as “embarrassing”.
