Slamming the anti-CAA protests in Delhi, specifically the agitated protests in Shaheen Bagh, Kapil Mishra on Thursday called these protest sites "mini-Pakistan" and said the upcoming assembly elections will be a contest "on Delhi roads between India and Pakistan".

In another provocative tweet, Mishra said, "Pakistan has made its entry in Shaheen Bagh. Many mini Pakistans are being formed in Delhi. Indian law is not  being followed in Shaheen Bagh, Chandbagh, Indralok."

"Pakistan rioters have encroached on the roads of Delhi (Pakistan ki entry Shaheen Bagh mein ho chuki hain. Delhi mein chhote chhote Pakistan Banaye ja rahe hain. Shaheen Bagh, Chand Bagh, Indralok mein desk ka kanoon nahi mana jaa raha hain. Pakistani dangayiyo ka Delhi ki sadko pe kabza)," he tweeted.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said such comments, be it from the Congress, the AAP or the BJP, are against democracy. He cited the example of BJP raising the slogan of a "Congress-free" India in 2014. 

Elections in Delhi will be held on February 8 and results will be announced on February 11.
