The Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari has provided with an unverified video as a proof of his claim that the anti-Citizenship Act protesters were raising slogans against PM Modi. In an interview with Sreenivasan Jain, NDTV, the BJP leader Manoj Tiwari was questioned about his claim that protesters at Shaheen Bagh raised slogans to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In response to this, Manoj Tiwari said, "I will give you video proof, you run it during our interview. If proof is not there, then you can say that Manoj was lying.”
Posting an update on Wednesday morning, Sreenivasan Jain tweeted, “Still waiting for proof, Manoj Tiwari.”
Responding to Jain’s tweet, Tiwari shared an unverified video of a small girl wearing a hijab and criticising PM Modi and Citizenship Act.
“Video have been released by the handle Know The Nation many days ago and they have gone viral. Everyone knows about it including you Sreenivasan Jain Ji , as you wanted again sharing now in a hope that senior journalist like you will run on NDTV today itself .. Bye for now!,” tweeted Manoj Tiwari while sharing the video.
Responding to Tiwar’s tweet, Jain said, “Manoj-ji, thanks for responding. Am afraid if this is the 'proof' - sharing an unverified cellphone video (of children) circulated by a Twitter handle - where is the credibility? Expect better from a Member of Parliament and state president of BJP, sir!”
Earlier on January 30, Reacting on Jamia firing incident, BJP leader Manoj Tiwari had linked it with the alleged plans to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"There were talks of shooting PM recently, now shooting has taken place. They [anti-CAA protesters at Shaheen Bagh and Jamia] are raising anti-Hindu slogans, are asking for 'Jinnah-wali azadi'. Despite the kind of slogans raised there, the Aam Adami party's deputy CM says they are standing with the Shaheen bagh [protesters]," Manoj Tiwari said.
The BJP leader said, "If you [AAP government] cannot remove such people from the protest site and are supporting them.. and if Congress is organising such protests, the Election Commission should question Arvind Kejriwal as it is against the model code of conduct."
