New Delhi: A day after BJP leaders claimed links between Jahangirpuri violence accused Md Ansar and the AAP, MLA of Delhi’s ruling party Atishi on Tuesday shared pictures on Twitter claiming that the accused can be seen with saffron party leaders. She claimed that the main accused in the riots is a BJP leader. She also alleged that BJP got the riots done.
Taking to twitter, she alleged, “He played a major role in getting BJP’s candidate Sangeeta Bajaj to contest and plays an active role in the BJP. It is clear that the BJP got the riots done. The BJP should apologise to Delhiites. The BJP is a party of goons”.
Earlier, she tweeted, “I will be making an explosive revelation about the Jahangirpuri riots at 5pm! Watch this space!”
During the Hanuman Jayanti processions, the clashes broke between two communities in Jahangirpuri. In the clashes eight police personnel and a local resident were injured. According to police, incidents of stone-pelting and arson were reported during the clashes and some vehicles were also set on fire.
The police has stated that behind all this Md Ansar and Md Aslam are the main accused. On Monday, in a letter to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor asked him to expel Ansar from the party.
“Delhiites want a reply from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leadership over the involvement of the youth, apparently an AAP worker, in the Jahangirpuri riots. Earlier too, we saw AAP councilor Tahir Hussain as the main accused of 2020 Delhi riots,” Kapoor said in the letter.
