AAP has resorted to playing dirty politics over First Lady Melania’s visit to a Delhi government school during her visit next week.
Bengaluru: The worst kind of politics has shrouded the visit of Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump to India.
Melania Trump was scheduled to visit a Delhi government school during her visit.
But there are reports that Delhi CM and his deputy Manish Sisodia have been asked not to accompany her.
As the reports began trickling in, the AAP has left no stone unturned to point fingers at the BJP, saying it has a role to play in it.
The two leaders were to accompany Melania on her visit and brief her about the endeavours they have taken up to inculcate moral values in children.
But, on the other hand, the BJP has maintained that it has no role to play in such events.
BJP’s Sambit Patra said, "There shouldn’t be low-level politics on some issues. India comes under disrepute if we start pulling each other’s legs. The Indian government doesn’t influence the US, as to whom they invite or not."
A prominent website added that sources in the central government have said that Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia "have not been edged out" and that it is "as per the laid-out protocol".
It further said, that even "the Gujarat CM will be not there during the roadshow and the UP CM will not be there at Taj Mahal" to accompany Donald Trump.
Donald Trump will be flying to India for a two-day visit on February 24 and 25. He will be landing in Ahmedabad where he will get a grand reception. He will later hold bilateral talks with PM Modi.
The visit happens to be the first one for President Trump.
The two will also be visiting Rajghat, the samadhi of Mahatma Gandhi on their second day stay here.
But the politics over dropping the names of Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia must end.
