Tiwari was caught on camera while provoking people for violence in northeast Delhi in presence of police. She had made several hate speeches before the February violence. However, no action was initiated against her.
Now Tiwari has threatened the government in connection with farmers protest. She stated that Centre and state governments will be responsible if any mischief takes places.
She also vilified the farmers’ protests saying that “traitors” like Sharjeel Imam and Umar Khalid are being favoured at these protests.
It is noteworthy that the release of all political prisoners including Imam and Khalid was sought during an event organised by Farmers’ organisation BKU Ekta Ugrahan at the Tikri border on 10 December. The organisation leaders said that the release of all politician prisoners has been one of their demands.
Tiwari’s remarks sparked criticism on social media. Several activists and journalists raised their strong concerns on the same.
Journalist Prashant Kannojia criticised authorities for their inaction against her.
