Delhi CM is Modi of 2013, he defamed Tablighi Jamaat, disappeared during riots: Owaisi

New Delhi, Nov 27 (PTI) AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, alleging he defamed the Muslim community in the entire country and "wants to break all records of Narendra Modi".

Campaigning for All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) candidates in Delhi's Seelampur ahead of the civic body polls, he alleged that Kejriwal disappeared at the time of riots in the national capital and spoke against those who protested against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at Shaheen Bagh.

"When people were reeling under COVID-19, struggling for oxygen and hospital beds, the Delhi chief minister spewed venom and said coronavirus was spreading because of Tablighi Jammat. He defamed Tablighi Jamaat.  "The lists of Covid cases in Delhi had a column that mentioned Tablighi Jamaat members as super-spreaders. The entire country started doubting Muslims. The hatred increased and many people were attacked. The Delhi CM is responsible for this," the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief said.     At the gathering, Owaisi alleged the Delhi chief minister said he would have removed the (anti-CAA) protesters at Shaheen Bagh in half an hour.
