Delhi minister Gopal Rai said all party MLAs, and office-bearers will gather at Shaheedi Park to protest against the BJP. “I appeal to the countrymen to protest outside BJP offices across the country against this dictatorship. We will gather at the AAP office [in Delhi] at 10 am on Friday and then protest outside the BJP headquarters,” he said.

AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sandeep Pathak said the fight was no longer between the BJP and the AAP. “This is a fight between the country’s people and the BJP…and of those who want clean politics in the country.”
