Taking a sharp dig at Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Gautam Gambhir questioned the intentions of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal behind allegedly backing suspended leader Tahir Hussain.
Mr Gambhir took to social media as he tweeted: “Came to teach sunderkand… and nothing sundar (beautiful) happened… but a planned scandal did happen!” It was a direct dig at AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj organising ‘sunderkand’ at his constituency.
Mr Gambhir added, “@ArvindKejriwal, Ankit Sharma, who protected the country, suffered 400 blows. The accusations are against Tahir! The question is on the intention of “AAP”!”
This sharp attack by BJP’s East Delhi MP came after AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan tweeted: “Today, Tahir Hussain is being punished only because he is a Muslim. Perhaps the biggest crime in Hindustan today is to be Muslim. It is also quite possible that it will be proved in the coming days that Tahir Hussain organised the violence in Delhi.”
Hussain’s role came under scanner after purported videos surfaced where he is seen to be on the roof of a house holding a stick.
