BJP leader Kapil Mishra has filed a police complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj for fear-mongering, trying to cause trouble and spreading lies through social media about NRC.
In a letter addressed to DCP, New Delhi, Mishra has stated that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj spread falsehoods regarding NRC implementation in Delhi as well as about the guidelines issues by the Supreme Court regarding the same and to compare the migrant workers from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha to illegal immigrants living in India.
He states that Delhi CM knowingly spread falsehood regarding National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the media so that the common citizens get wary of NRC and it could lead to a law and order situation in the state. CM Kejriwal along with his aide AAP MLA Bharadwaj lied that if NRC is implemented in Delhi, the migrants from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Odisha and Bihar who live in work in the national capital will be thrown out of Delhi.
The letter further states comparison of migrant workers with illegal immigrants has hurt the sentiments of those who have made Delhi their home. People in Delhi are angry and this could lead to law and order situation.
He further alleges that this could be a ploy of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to shield the illegal Rohingyas and Bangladeshi immigrants and to create obstructions in path of central government which is trying to identify these illegal immigrants.
He has requested Delhi Police to file a case against Delhi CM and AAP MLA for spreading rumours, trying to create law and order situation, spreading lies on social media and hurting the sentiments of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh migrants in the national capital.
On Wednesday, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal while answering media query had displayed his ignorance about citizenship and domicile and said that if NRC is implemented in Delhi, BJP leader Manoj Tiwari would be the first one to leave Delhi. Delhi BJP leader Manoj Tiwari had said recently that the situation in Delhi is worsening due to the presence of illegal immigrants who pose a threat to the safety of people in Delhi. Tiwari assured that the BJP government will implement the NRC in Delhi as well just like they have done it in Assam.
The NRC is strictly to identify the illegal immigrants living in the country and is not aimed at Indians living in states different from their birthplaces.
However, Aam Aadmi Party leaders who have often resorted to cheap tricks to fool the common man, continued to spread the lies. AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj, who is best known for using a toy EVM machine to ‘hack’ it, took to Twitter to spread lies.
उत्तर प्रदेश, राजस्थान, उड़ीसा और बिहार से लोग दिल्ली रोज़गार के लिए आते हैं, दिल्ली के विकास में बराबर के भागीदार हैं, वे चोर नहीं है।
अगर दिल्ली में NRC लागू होगा तो इन सबको दिल्ली छोड़कर जाना होगा, आप इनके ख़िलाफ़ क्यों हैं? @Saurabh_MLAgk pic.twitter.com/3JUFFFcfkE
