Q1) Your comments on Jahangirpuri violence.
Tarun Chugh: It is unfortunate. Some political people, organisations do not want peace in Delhi. So, again and again, they do such things which insult the nation. They want to hurt PM Narendra Modi’s government which for the past eight years is working with the motive of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas.
Q2) FIRs are lodged against Delhi BJP leaders like Naveen Kumar by Punjab police. Your reaction.
Tarun Chugh: It is unconstitutional and unlawful. AAP (which is ruling in Punjab) is stopping freedom of expression! Is there an emergency in Punjab? People understand everything.
Q3) Your reaction to Aam Aadmi Party’s nationwide survey seeking people’s opinion on itself, BJP.
Tarun Chugh: Which poll you are talking about? People already expressed their will when they voted (for BJP) in Lok Sabha Polls 2019.
