While speaking to ANI in the national capital on January 24, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) BJP candidate from Model Town constituency Kapil Mishra spoke on his statement on Delhi Assembly elections. He said, "I received a notice from Election Commission last night and I will give my reply today. I don't think I said anything wrong. Speaking truth is not a crime in this country. I spoke the truth. I stand by my statement." "Roads are encroached upon in Shaheen Bagh, people aren't being allowed to go to schools, offices, hospitals and inciting slogans are being raised," he added. "The shamelessness with which Manish Sisodia said he stands with Shaheen Bagh means that this is a political movement," Kapil Mishra further stated.
