Impose Prez rule, postpone Delhi poll: Hindu Mahasabha

New Delhi, Jan 31 : Saffron outfit, Hindu Mahasabha, on Friday demanded Presidents rule to be imposed in the nation capital here in view of the Shaheen Bagh protest and the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking to IANS, the outfit chief Swami Chakrapani said: "The Shaheen Bagh blockade has created a law and order situation.

The JNU violence has also contributed to the break down.

In light of this, postponing the Delhi Assembly election scheduled for February 8 will be a logical decision."

Chakrapani also condemned the gun assault at the protest site on Thursday that left one student injured.

This is not the first time, the outfit has lashed out at the Shaheen Bagh president.

Earlier, Chakrapani called Shaheen Bagh as the "anti-national version of Jallianwala Bagh massacre".

Speaking to IANS, Swami Chakrapani had then alleged: "Jallianwala Bagh was a congregation for nationalist cause where patriotic slogans were raised.

In constrast, Delhi's Shaheen Bagh protesters are raising anti-India slogans and Hindu-phobic posters.

"No wonder, this is the anti-national version of Jallianwala Bagh."

Protestors at Shaheen Bagh have blocked the main road for over a month demanding rollback of the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.
