'Political design' behind the anti-CAA protests in Jamia, Shaheen Bagh: PM Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke his silence on the national capital on Monday and said there was a political design behind the stir.

When launching a scathing attack against the opposition, he said: The protests in Seelampur, Shaheen Bagh and Jamia over CAA are not a coincidence but an experiment.

Blaming the Aam Aadmi Party and Congress for playing the politics of voting banks in the national capital, Prime Minister Modi said that these people are saving those who want to break India into pieces.

If the protests had been against a law, they would have ended after government guarantees. But the AAP and Congress are provoking people. The Constitution and the tricolor remain at the forefront and attention is diverted from the royal conspiracy, said Prime Minister Modi.

Referring to the ongoing turmoil in Shaheen Bagh, Prime Minister Modi criticized protesters for causing inconvenience to people traveling between Delhi and Noida.

Urging people to give a decisive mandate for the BJP, Prime Minister Modi said that anarchists cannot be allowed to take control or else tomorrow some other path will be blocked.

Hitting Congress, Prime Minister Modi said that those who questioned the Batla House meeting are saving those who raised the slogan 'tukde tukde'.

These people (AAP and Arvind Kejriwal) even questioned the Army for surgical attacks, the prime minister said.
