Speaking to the media, BJP MP Pravesh Verma said that he can clear Shaheen Bagh within an hour if his party is voted to power in Delhi. He also said that he would remove all the mosques that are built on government lands in his Lok Sabha constituency.
New Delhi: BJP MP Pravesh Verma on Tuesday (January 28) said that the ongoing protests at Shaheen Bagh would come to an end within one hour if BJP forms the government in Delhi.
"If the BJP forms government on February 11, not a single person will be found at (the protest site) Shaheen Bagh," Verma said during a meeting at Vikaspuri Assembly constituency.
"If our government is formed, then give me just a month after February 11, and I will remove all mosques built on government land in my Lok Sabha constituency," the BJP parliamentarian added.
"Lakhs of people gather there (Shaheen Bagh). People of Delhi will have to think and take a decision. They will enter your houses, rape your sisters and daughters, and kill them. There's time today, Modiji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) and Amit Shah will not come to save you tomorrow. It will be a whole lot better if the people of Delhi wake up today," Verma addressed Delhi residents while speaking to the media.
The BJP MP from West Delhi alleged that the Shaheen Bagh protesters could harm residents of Delhi and urged people to wake up "while there's time”.
"Arvind Kejriwal says he is with Shaheen Bagh, and so does Manish Sisodia. The people know that a fire engulfed Kashmir in which their mothers and sisters were raped. This happened in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Hyderabad," Verma said.
Protests have been going on in different parts of the country against the amended Citizenship Act (CAA) which grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
