Union Home Minister Amit Shah mounted a scathing attack on the opposition on Thursday over the violence in the capital over Citizenship Amendment act and for anti-Sikh riots of 1984. Shah targeted both – the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress, the two main opposition of the Bharatiya Janata party in the upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.
Addressing a crowd on the occasion of laying the foundation stone of integrated development of East Delhi hub, Amit Shah said, “Recently, opposition politicians under the leadership of Congress spread rumours about the Citizenship Amendment Act. People came out on the roads and disturbed the peace and calm of Delhi. These politicians disturbed the peace of Delhi.”
He further said, “Congress could never deliver justice to the victims. The moment the Modi government came to power, an SIT was formed. Today the rioters are in jail.” Referring to Gautam Gambhir, Union Minister Shah also appealed to people to vote for MLAs who are ‘equally hard working’ when Delhi votes for assembly elections next year.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicked off the election campaign for Bharatiya Janata party at Ramlila Ground.
