There is a deliberate attempt to disrupt communal harmony and peace in Delhi, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal said on Thursday. He said he has directed the party’s former MLAs and Vidhan Sabha convenors to form peace committees against efforts to divide communities.
“There is a pattern of deliberate attempts to arouse communal passions in the recent incidents in Trilokpuri, Bawana, Mundka and Okhla. I appeal to the prominent personalities and all the citizens of Delhi to participate in the efforts to maintain communal harmony,” Kejriwal said.
“Those willing to become part of the harmony committees can send in their names and we will contact them urgently,” he said.
Kejriwal said the party has decided to take a a slew of steps in all 70 constituencies to ward off any attempts to organise an inflammatory meeting and peacefully but firmly oppose them. The party will encourage participation of people from other religions in all festivals.
The former Delhi chief minister also said volunteers should work “to expose the real design of the BJP”.
“In case any incident takes place in your area, do not hesitate to hand over mischievous elements to the police and ensure such elements are not able to give any incident a Hindu-Muslim colour,” he said.
