A shopkeeper from Laxmi Nagar market confirmed to Hindustan Times that he saw the MLA coming from Mangal Bazar and walking towards Vikas Marg at around 7 pm. His followers are seen with sticks and heard sloganeering on the streets in the video.
However, Verma claimed that he had gone to the market only to reduce tensions after rumours of stone-pelting in the area surfaced. He also said that his supporters didn't chant any provocative slogans.
Meanwhile, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari in an all-party meeting chaired by Union home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday appealed to all BJP leaders to establish peace in the national capital. He urged all leaders not to engage in anything that causes confusion and sends a wrong message to people.
"Everyone should refrain from making inflammatory statements. Intentionally, some people are trying to mislead the common people of Delhi. Efforts have been made for several days to end peace, goodwill, and brotherhood, in which residents are being instigated and provoked," he said.
