New Delhi: Union Minister Smriti Irani again targeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Irani was campaging along with Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani for BJP candidate Jai Prakash. In the campaign she addressed people from Sadar Bazar, Delhi.  Smriti Irani called Kejriwal a supporter of tukde-tukde Gang. Further she alleged Kejriwal for supporting the family of Nirbhaya rape case convict.

Addressing a public gathering in North East Delhi’s Shastri Nagar, the BJP leader said Kejriwal was playing politics over the protests against the new citizenship law.

On the Nirbhaya gangrape-murder case, Irani alleged, “When the rape accused was released, he was gifted a sewing machine, and was given Rs 10,000. What sort of political ethics are these… They supported a rapist. Whenever you are angry about Nirbhaya, remember this.”

Smriti Irani interacted with local people of Sadar Bazar and asked them, ” If you want a safe world for your girls then choose BJP and I have come here to request you that if you think women deserve the right of respect, you go to the polling booths and give your answer through your votes.”

Irani also targeted her statement at JNU PhD scholar Sharjeel Imam, who is accused of sedition, and accused AAP of endorsing the ideology. “When Shaheen Bagh issue was raised, Manish Sisodia said we are with them. They raised a slogan that said they want to break up the nation,”Smriti Irani said.

The voting for the Delhi Assembly is scheduled on February 8. The results of assembly election will be announced on February 11, 2020.
