The political rhetoric of political parties has intensified as the date of assembly elections in Delhi draws closer. On the very first day of the new year, the BJP made serious allegations against the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party over the protests in Delhi over the CAA Act. On behalf of the BJP, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the AAP and the Congress party were behind the recent violent incidents in Delhi. He accused both parties of provoking people and demanded an apology. Javadekar, the election in-charge of Delhi (BJP), referred to the violence in Jamia, Seelampur and Daryaganj in protest against the amended Citizenship Act (CAA). Javadekar named the leaders (AAP and Congress) and said that he instigated the people which led to violence. Javadekar named Congress leader Chaudhary Matin of Seelampur, AAP leader Isharaq Khan, Abdul Rahman, Amanatullah of Jamia. Javadekar accused AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan of inciting people against the CAA.

He said, Amanatullah gave provocative speeches, Amanatullah told the people in his statement that Azan will be banned in the country, there will be a burqa ban… Such things were said. The Union Minister said that the leaders of both the parties together raised doubts in the minds of the people for the law (CAA). Javadekar said, “Violence was perpetrated in a quiet city like Delhi by creating suspicion”. Javadekar once again said that the Citizenship Amendment Act is not a law to take away citizenship but to give citizenship. He said that Congress and AAP should apologize for spreading confusion. It is a law to give citizenship to refugees, now people have understood this, so all is quiet. Javadekar said that the Aam Aadmi Party also takes credit for someone else’s work. He said that dengue deaths in Delhi did not happen this time because the MCD did a good job. At the same time, there was little control because the trucks came out of the Eastern Peripheral Way. He said that the AAP government did not give its share of the peripheral way. Along with this, the file of Phase 4 of Delhi Metro was also withheld. Javadekar said, ‘Someone should work in Delhi, someone is wearing a hat’.
