Instead of replying on Delhi riots, BJP’s Manoj Tiwari blames it on opposition calls it ‘riotous’
The opposition needs to be called the riotous opposition, who by their fiery speeches spread riots in Delhi, said Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari
Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari has stoked a controversy saying that opposition should be called ‘riotous opposition’.
He said, "The opposition needs to be called the riotous opposition, who by their fiery speeches spread riot in Delhi. Let the speeches of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi be investigated.”
"First they give hate speeches and vitiate the atmosphere in Delhi and the country. They can't understand the pain of Delhi. If they have raised questions, Home Minister Amit Shah will answer in the House," Tiwari said outside Parliament on Monday.
When asked about the provocative speeches by some BJP leaders, Tiwari said, "If you are taking some names of the BJP leaders, then take everybody's name. When it comes to making hate speeches, why single out only BJP leaders? Some opposition leaders like Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Rahul Gandhi have also given hate speeches."
Meanwhile, death toll in Delhi's violence rose to 46 on Monday as the situation remained tense but peaceful.
While 38 have been reported dead at the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, three at Lok Nayak Hospital, four at Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and one at Jag Parvesh Chander Hospital.
Four bodies were fished out from the drains in Gokalpuri and Shiv Vihar areas of the violence-affected northeast area on Sunday.
