Delhi BJP activists on Friday staged a demonstration near All India Congress Committee office on Akbar Road to protest against objectionable remarks made on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and for linking Uri terror attack casualties to the deaths during demonetisation. Hundreds of protesters raised slogans and took out a protest march under the leadership of Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay. They were stopped and detained by the police while marching towards the Congress office.

The demonstrators raised slogans against Congress leader Gulam Nabi Azad for comparing the deaths during demonetisation drive with the martyrs of Uri terror attack and Congress leader Pramod Tiwari for calling Prime Minister Modi as “Hitler” in the Parliament.

Addressing the demonstrators, Upadhyay said “It is regrettable that the Congressmen who imposed emergency in the country and amassed black wealth from the coal block auctions are today denouncing Modi government which is fighting against the black money.”

He charged that the parties opposing Modi and his demonetisation are those whose “black money” is “destroyed” by the move.
