Delhi polls: EC seeks report on BJP candidate Kapil Mishra's 'India vs Pakistan' comment

New Delhi/IBNS: The Election Commission on Friday sought a report from the Delhi Chief Electoral Officer on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kapil Mishra's controversial comment where he had literally compared the Delhi assembly elections with a match between India and Pakistan, media reports said.

Mishra, who is a BJP candidate from Delhi's Model Town, in a tweet on Thursday said, "𝗜𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗮 𝘃𝘀 𝗣𝗮𝗸𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻 8𝘁𝗵 𝗙𝗲𝗯𝗿𝘂𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗗𝗲𝗹𝗵𝗶."

The report will have to be submitted within 24 hours.

Mishra had also gone on to say that Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress have created Mini Pakistans like Shaheen Bagh, the site in the national capital where several Muslim women are protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) for over a month. 

Retweeting a news article which states Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is supporting the Shaheen Bagh protests, Mishra said, "AAP, Congress have created Shaheen Bagh-like Mini Pakistans. The Hindustan will rise on Feb 8. Whenever the anti-nationals will create Pakistan in India, the Hindustan of nationalists will stand up."

Delhi will go to polls on Feb 8 and the votes will be counted on 11th of the same month.

In the last state elections, the AAP had won 67 of 70 assembly seats leaving just three for the BJP.

The stakes are high for the BJP as the saffron party is keen to wrest power in Delhi after five states slipping out of its hands in last 13 months.
