Law and order is under Centre says AAP on protests at Shaheen Bagh
| Friday | 14th February, 2020
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) stuck to its winning formula of steering clear of any discussion on the anti-CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) protests at Shaheen Bagh.
In an interview, Chadha told NDTV, "We are a small political party in Delhi concerned with issues of basic amenities, healthcare, education, pollution... we have nothing to do with it (CAA and Shaheen Bagh)."
Amid a mega campaign by the BJP that focussed extensively on the protests, AAP practically repeated its historic win of 2015 –retaining 62 of the state assembly's 70 seats while BJP bagged only 8 seats.
The BJP had targeted Shaheen Bagh –the epicentre of anti-CAA protests in which hundreds of women and children spent two months sitting on an arterial road – over traffic blocks which caused inconvenience to many people living in the national capital.
Arvind Kejriwal was accused of aiding the protesters - "serving biryani in Shaheen Bagh" was how Yogi Adityanath said in a speech.
