Mumbai: A senior BJP leader on Friday said that the Delhi-Madhya Pradesh border may become a major flashpoint between the two states as the two sides continue to foment tension between the communities.
In a meeting with BJP workers, Kirti Azad, a leader of the BJP in Maharashtra, also said the party’s top leadership in the state was considering creating a special police force at the Mumbai-Delhi border to monitor the situation.
He said the state government has asked the government to submit a proposal to the Centre within two days for creating the unit.
“The government of Maharashtra is very clear.
The government of Delhi is very strong and they have the authority to do so.
We are looking at it,” Azad told reporters after the meeting.
He also said that BJP would soon release a manifesto aimed at highlighting the state’s issues.
“We have a manifesto and will release it on Thursday.
We will launch it on the same day,” he said.
The BJP has faced mounting criticism from across the country over the border tension, with some commentators accusing it of appeasing the Hindu nationalists and appeasing its own leaders.
