Ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections, AAP MP Sanjay Singh on Sunday slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his 'Boli nahi goli se samjhaya jaayega' statement at an election campaign rally. Singh also said that Yogi must be arrested and interrogated over his remark on CM Arvind Kejriwal's link with Pakistan Prime Minister. While campaigning for BJP candidates in Delhi on Saturday, Yogi had accused Arvind Kejriwal of having Pakistan links which is why Pakistan federal minister was seeking votes for him.

Following his remark, AAP on Saturday had asked the Election Commission to direct the police chief and other agencies to take appropriate measures to prevent unrest and violence planned by "certain political parties" in the city to sabotage the Delhi elections.

Speaking to the media Singh said, "Here, people are shooting and you (Yogi) are saying 'boli goli'. Your students are not getting proper mid-day meal and all you do is incite violence. He says Kejriwal has a link with Pak PM. Arrest Yogi and ask him how does he know about Kejriwal's links with Pak PM. Has the BJP gone mad? Sometimes they call Kejriwal monkey and sometimes a traitor. BJP needs a medical attention. I'll give Yogi a free check-up in Delhi. Amit Shah is the one instigating violence and provoking everyone."

Delhi election 

New Delhi will go to polls in a single-phase on February 8 and the counting of votes will take place on February 11. The last day of filing nominations for the candidates was on January 21. The BJP has fielded Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha president Sunil Yadav against Delhi CM Kejriwal from New Delhi constituency, and the Congress has pitted former NSUI Delhi president Ramesh Sabharwal against him. BJP is trying to make advances in the upcoming Assembly elections after the 2015 debacle where it won only 3 seats. During the 2015 elections, AAP won 67 seats out of the 70-seat Assembly. The Assembly elections take place in the backdrop of an extremely communal, hate drive campaign and various violent protests. On Thursday, a man opened fire before being arrested by the Delhi police. A similar incident took place on Saturday as well.
