Bhartiya Janata Party and Aam Aadmi party took to protest politics on Saturday and launched demonstrations against each other on separate issues.
BJP leaders gathered outside Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence this morning to protest against AAP’s plan to procure snooping equipment for its Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB), a charge the party (AAP) has denied. Led by party chief Satish Upadhyay, the protest involved 1,000 party workers demanding justification over the snooping row. Upadhyay was reported saying, “AAP wants to break into people’s privacy. Who gave them the right to tap phone calls of the citizens of Delhi?”
Following the BJP protests, AAP workers staged agitation against Human Resources and Development Minister Smriti Irani holding her responsible for the IIT Madras row where a student group was banned for criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his policies. Irani had previously said, “IIT Madras is an autonomous institution which takes its own steps.”
In the Centre vs State turf war, both the parties have been active in continuous and simultaneous clashes.
