New Delhi: BJP today relocated the scheduled 'nukkad sabha' venue of Union minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, whose controversial speech recently had stalled parliament for days, following police instructions.
Jyoti, who was to address a 'nukkad sabha' this evening in the Block-36 of Trilokpuri, which witnessed communal violence last month, will now be holding the meeting at a venue in Block-34.
The police asked BJP this morning to look for a new venue. "We have changed the venue of Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti's nukkad sabha following instructions by police. We have shifted the venue slightly in view of law and order situation. The new venue is in Block-34," said a BJP spokesperson.
Jyoti's speech in another part of Delhi recently had triggered a furore following which she had to tender an apology in the Parliament on the orders of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Modi then urged the opposition to get back to work and forgive the minister, who, he stressed is a first-timer MP and has "a rural background."
