AAP, Congress react sharply to video

A controversy erupted on Sunday after a video purportedly showing Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari breaking the lock of a sealed house surfaced.

Reacting to the video, the AAP and the Congress linked it with the ongoing sealing drive by the BJP-ruled municipal corporations in the city.

AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleged that after demonetisation and the GST, the sealing by the BJP now has “destroyed” Delhi.

CM’s tweet

“They conduct sealing in the morning and break the lock in the evening. Do they feel people are fools [sic],” Mr. Kejriwal tweeted.

The Delhi Congress, which is running ‘Nyay Yudh’ campaign against “illegal” sealing of household industries, demanded resignation of BJP MPs in Delhi, including Mr. Tiwari, for failing to protect people affected by the sealing drive.
