New Delhi: In New Delhi’s Jahangirpuri, miscreants pelted stones at a religious procession organised on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti. The procession is called ‘Shobha Yatra’. According to the reports, a ruckus was reported between the people of the two communities. During the incident, a few policemen received injuries.
Soon after the incident was reported, Delhi BJP leader Kapil Mishra shared his reaction on Twitter in Hindi. In the tweet, he blamed the illegal immigrants of Bangaladesh for the incident.
दिल्ली के जहाँगीर पूरी में हनुमान जन्मोत्सव पर हुआ पथराव आतंकी हरकत है
बांग्लादेशी घुसपैठियों की बस्ती अब भारत के नागरिकों पर हमलें करने की हिम्मत करने लगी है
इनके एक एक के कागज चेक करके गैर कानूनी घुसपैठियों को देश से निकालना अब जरूरी हो गया है #JahangeerPuri
