New Delhi, Oct 4 (IANS) The BJP on Tuesday dubbed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders as “anarchists” after Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra confronted Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on the issue of terrorism at an event here and later walked out.
“This party is working like an anti-national party, whether it is the case of Jawaharlal Nehru University or the case of its Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is acting and speaking as the spokesperson of Hafiz Saeed,” Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unit chief Satish Upadhyay told IANS.
“They are demoralising the soldiers of our nation. They are anarchists and they are spreading anarchism,” Upadhyay alleged.
Upadhyay’s remarks came after Mishra created a flutter at a tourism event here by asking Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti if she considered slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani a terrorist and said that tourism and terrorism cannot go together.
“Can tourism and terrorism go together? How will tourism grow in India? Before leaving she has to tell us if she considers Burhan Wani and Afzal Guru terrorists,” Mishra said.
“It cannot happen that you (Mehbooba Mufti) do not accept that Burhan Wani was a terrorist, and seek boost in tourism,” Mishra said, before staging a walkout.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by Mehbooba Mufti and the Bharatiya Janata Party are ruling Jammu and Kashmir in an alliance. The Aam Aadmi Party leader’s comments were apparently directed at the PDP-BJP ruling alliance.
