BJP slams AAP for 'hurting religious sentiments' in Punjab
BJP on Thursday staged a demonstration against the Aam Aadmi Party, accusing it of "disturbing communal harmony" and "hurting religious sentiments" of people in Punjab.
The BJP also demanded that AAP should expel party leaders Naresh Yadav and Ashish Khetan, and apologise to the people of Punjab for hurting their sentiments.
"AAP leaders are continuously trying to disturb the communal harmony in Punjab. Arvind Kejriwal should immediately expel Ashish Khetan and Naresh Yadav from the party and apologise to the people of Punjab," BJP's National Secretary R.P. Singh said.
AAP legislator Yadav was on Tuesday questioned by Punjab Police for his alleged involvement in the case of desecration of a Quran at Malerkotla (in Punjab) on June 24.
A police complaint was also filed against AAP leader Khetan for allegedly comparing his party's Punjab manifesto with holy Sikh book Guru Granth Sahib.
