New Delhi, Feb 4: Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is constantly 'trying to incite violence in the society to get votes, but the people of Delhi have thwarted the conspiracy to incite tension'.
Addressing the media persons, the senior BJP leader said, "The youth who shot in Shaheen Bagh turned out to be members of the AAP. On the one hand, the AAP felicitates youths with party caps and garlands and on the other hand, it uses them to shoot for creating tension.”
BJP’s in-charge of Delhi Assembly Elections, Mr Javadekar said that the accused person was given Membership of AAP in the presence of MP Sanjay Singh and Atishi and the party is misusing youth for its political selfishness.
National Vice-President and in-charge of Delhi, Shyam Jaju, Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel, National Secretary and Convener of Delhi Election Management Committee Tarun Chugh, National Media Co-Head Sanjay Mayukh and Pradesh Media Head Ashok Goel Devrah were present in the press conference.
Mr Javadekar said that AAP leaders like Amanatullah Khan and Abdul Rahman "tried to incite violence first by making fiery speeches, bus burning, stoning the Delhi Police but the people of Delhi did not get enticed by them'.
“The AAP is working to incite violence in Delhi out of fear of its defeat. It is plotting to divide the society but its real face has been exposed to Delhi,” he said.
Mr Javadekar said that Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal sometimes asks for proof of surgical strike, Balakot, holds a sit-in to stop the January 26 parade and does not give permission to prosecute those who raise anti-national slogans in JNU.
“The voters of Delhi are watching the conspiracy of the Aam Aadmi Party and will definitely take cognizance of it,” he added.
The Delhi polls for the 70 seats is scheduled to be held on February 8, and the counting of votes will be done on February 11.
AAP had won 67 seats in the previous election, limiting the BJP to three and the Congress to zero seats. (UNI)
