BJP MP Gautam Gambhir says strict action must be taken against BJP Kapil Mishra who made a provocative speech ahead of violent protests in Delhi. Pro-CAA protests in Delhi have killed seven innocents so far.

Two days after the violent protests broke out in Delhi the death toll has risen to seven. The pro-CAA violent groups have taken to the streets to chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogans as they pelt stones, gaslight buildings and cars on fire. The Delhi Police has been issued with ‘Shoot at Sight’ orders given the rising tension in the national capital.

Former cricketer and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir visited a hospital in East Delhi where injured policemen have been admitted. Talking about Kapil Mishra, his fellow party member Gautam Gambhir said, ‘“Whoever, no matter which party he belongs to, whether he is Kapil Mishra or anyone else, who gave speeches to provoke people, action should be taken against them.’

Gautam gambhir also talked about peaceful protests at Shaheen Bagh. He said, ‘Shaheen Bagh was a peaceful protest all this while. But Trump is here and there are violent protests happening here – this is not fair. Right to peaceful protest is okay. But picking up stones is not. How can you stand with a pistol in front of a cop?’

Ahead of the violent protests in Delhi, Kapil Mishra gathered a group of pro-CAA members on Sunday afternoon. Later, Mishra posted a video of him where he gave an “ultimatum” to the Delhi Police to clear the anti-CAA protesters within three days. He said that ’till he (Trump) is in India, we are leaving the area peacefully…after that, we won’t listen to you (police).”

The stringent comments from Gautam Gambhir came after 10 people including a Police constable named Ratan Lal were killed in Delhi. The violence has engulfed the national capital in terrorizing fear as anti-CAA and pro-CAA members clashed against each other on Monday.

A Delhi NGO has already filed a police complaint against three BJP leaders Kapil Mishra, Anurag Thakur and Pravesh Verma for their malicious ways of instigating violence in the national capital. The petition has already been presented before a bench headed by Justice G S Sistani.
