New Delhi: Delhi Water Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kapil Mishra has stirred up a hornet's nest by saying that if the legendary freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh would have been alive today, he would have hurled 2-4 bombs inside the Parliament.
“Seeing the country's condition, I believe that even today the freedom struggle would have continued and if Bhagat Singh was there, he would have thrown 2-4 bombs at empty benches inside the Parliament to make the deaf hear,” the AAP MLA representing Karawal Nagar constituency said.
The AAP leader also said that Mahatma Gandhi would have also continued with his 'Satyagraha' movement.
Mishra made the comments on Friday.
The minister taunted the BJP by asking whether it would form government with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir if its president Mehbooba Mufti did not raise 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' slogan.
In an open letter to BJP president Amit Shah, the AAP leader posed four queries attacking the BJP-PDP coalition whose "cost" will have to be "borne" by the country in the near future, he said.
"Does Mehbooba Mufti believe in Bharat Mata ki Jai? If not, will the BJP form government with her? Will she raise slogans saying Afzal Guru was a terrorist? If not, then what is the compulsion for you (BJP) to form a govt with her?" Mishra asked in his letter.
