New Delhi: With Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Naresh Yadav booked for trying to incite riots in Punjab following a recent case of alleged 'desecration' of the Quran, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today demanded a thorough investigation into the matter and said it clearly reveals the fact that the Arvind Kejriwal-led party has been playing with the sentiments of the people.

BJP leader Zafar Islam said this is a very serious issue as it is connected to religion.

 

"Kejriwal and his party stand exposed. They have set an example of how they are going to play with the people's sentiments and religion," Islam told ANI here.

"The way Naresh Yadav has got this thing done through the power of money it feels that he might be a target (mohra). The whole thing is somewhere connected with Kejriwal. Proper investigation must be done. Police must do a thorough investigation on Kejriwal and all of its party leaders, as they show as to how low they can go in the name of politics," he added.

Yadav earlier today downplayed the allegations levelled against him and said that the 'restless' SAD-BJP alliance in Punjab was hatching conspiracies.

Yadav told ANI that the alliance has become restless as the people of Punjab have decided to give absolute majority to the AAP in the upcoming assembly elections.

The fresh charges against the AAP MLA came as a major blow to the party, which is gearing for the 2017 polls in the state.

The Sangrur Police booked Yadav after the alleged mastermind in the case, Vijay Kumar, disclosed that he had desecrated the Quran at the behest of the Mehrauli MLA and was offered Rs. one crore for the same.
