Lashing out at anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters in Shaheen Bagh and other places in the city, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party leader Kapil Mishra on Thursday termed the assembly elections next month a contest between India and Pakistan.
Mishra, a former minister in the Arvind Kejriwal government, is the BJP's candidate from Model Town.
In a series of tweets, Mishra said, "India vs Pakistan 8th February Delhi. There will a contest on Delhi Roads between India and Pakistan on February 8."
"Pakistan has already entered Shaheen Bagh and small pockets of Pakistan are being created in Delhi," he added.
In another post, Mishra asserted that the BJP will win the February 8 elections and Kejriwal will resign from his post when votes are counted on February 11.
The former AAP leader was removed as minister by Kejriwal in 2017. Last year, he was also disqualified as AAP MLA under the anti-defection law.
Mishra faces AAP MLA Akhileshpati Tripathi in the elections.
