New Delhi: After the news of widespread violence in North-East Delhi picked up heat, filmmaker and producer Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter to hit out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He asked whether Kejriwal’s party has sold its conscious to Amit Shah. His tweet read, “This Aam Aadmi Party won the Delhi elections, no. Where are you now Arvind Kejriwal and him? Your Delhi is burning.” Amit Shah has bought you or you have sold your conscience? “

Twitter users reply to Kashyap

However, Twitter users were quick to react to Kashyap’s post. Actress Simi Grewal, while replying to his tweet, wrote, “Delhi Police, Law and Order do not fall under the jurisdiction of the common man. They are under the Ministry of Home Affairs.” Meanwhile, lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar hit out at BJP leader Kapil Mishra for the violence in the national capital. “The level of violence in Delhi is rising. All Kapil Mishra is unmasked. On average, the people of Delhi are being made to understand that everything is happening because of the CAA protests and in a few days the police will be the last Will go for a solution,” Akhtar’s tweet read.

What had Kapil Mishra said?

Kapil Mishra had recently warned that if the protesters are not removed from the streets of Delhi within three days, then ‘even the police won’t be able to stop him’. He had said, “A 3-day ultimatum to Delhi Police – Remove anti-CAA protesters from the streets of Jaffrabad and Chand Bagh. Don’t come to us after that, we will not listen to you. Just three days”.

What happened in North-East Delhi?

It started after a large group of people, mainly women, gathered in North East Delhi’s Jaffrabad area on Saturday night to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act or CAA. It was said that the protesters had blocked one side of the road. Later on Sunday, clashes erupted between two groups – one of which was pro-CAA while the other was against is. The situation was later controlled by the Delhi Police. Further, the violence continued on Monday and Tuesday as well. Stones were pelted in both Jafrabad-Maujpur and houses, shops and vehicles were set on fire. There were also reports of violence in Chandbagh and Bhajanpura areas.
