New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: A larger number of BJP workers on Thursday protested outside the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his comment mocking unit chief Manoj Tiwari.

Several protesters were detained by the police while many of them were seen climbing up barricades, waving BJP flags and shouting slogans against Kejriwal.

This comes a day after Kejriwal said that Tiwari would have to leave Delhi if the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was implemented.

Taking a swipe at Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said if the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is implemented, the BJP leader will have to first leave the city.

In the past, Tiwari has on several occasions demanded that NRC should be implemented in the national capital like Assam.

Responding to a question at a press conference, the chief minister said,"If NRC is implemented in Delhi, Manoj Tiwari will have to first leave Delhi."

Last month, Tiwari had said that the situation in Delhi had become "dangerous" due to the presence of a "large number" of illegal immigrants including Bangladeshis and Rohingyas who have been found involved in "criminal activities".
