Delhi elections: Fadnavis warns PM will not spare any anti nationalists


Election in Delhi is round the corner, and BJP senior leaders from various states are busy doing election campaigns in Delhi. Former Maharashtra CM and senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis, slammed the ruling AAP in Delhi on Tuesday and dubbed the February 8 Assembly polls in the national capital as a fight between “nationalism” and “anarchy”.


Addressing poll meetings in the Kalkaji, Deoli and Badarpur constituencies, Fadnavis said Sharjeel Imam’s arrest had proved that the Modi government was not going to spare those involved in “anti-national” activities.


“The entire Opposition is supporting the Shaheen Bagh protest in Delhi. If Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had not supported the tukde tukde gang, there would have been no Shaheen Bagh,” he said.


While the BJP was in favour of nationalism, the Opposition was supporting “anarchists, Fadnavis said.


“The Delhi election is a fight between nationalists and anarchists and the people here have to decide who they want in power,” he said.


Campaigning for the party candidate from the New Delhi constituency, Sunil Yadav, BJP national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav alleged that Kejriwal, his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress were standing with “anti-nationals”.


Himachal Pradesh CM Jairam Thakur addressed poll meetings and claimed that Delhi had taken steps backward, instead of moving ahead, under the AAP government.


Bihar’s Deputy CM Sushil Modi said people of other states played a crucial role in Delhi’s development, but Kejriwal considered them as “infiltrators”.


Adarsh Nagar BJP candidate, Raj Kumar Bhatia asked the crowd, “Do people from Bihar need Kejriwal’s permission to visit Delhi?”

Meanwhile, Kejriwal said in a tweet that 250 senior leaders of the BJP, including 200 MPs and 11 chief ministers, were reaching the national capital to defeat Delhiites and their “son” Kejriwal.
