"I am amazed on the selective silence (of Congress). AAP corporator Tahir (Hussain) who has been involved earlier in violence in December and an FIR has been lodged against him. Since today morning, TV channels showing incriminating evidence have been found at his place. All the materials used in riots have been found at his place. But Congress and AAP is silent on it. AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan had said you won't be allowed to wear skull cap, where is it mentioned in CAA that wearing skull cap is not allowed? Isn't all this an instigation? 'Jinnah wali Azaadi' if this is not instigation then what is it? 15 crore will go tough on 100 crore, if this is not instigation then what is it? Cutting off Assam from mainland India, neither Congress nor AAP speaking on it. During such a tense situation, instead of appealing for peace, you are playing dirty politics?" Javadekar said raising questions over the selective silence of Congress.
