A war of words has broken down on Twitter between activist Kavita Krishnan and Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi over the events that took place at Nizamuddin between March 1 and March 15.
Justifying the action taken by the Delhi government against the Tablighi Jamaat, Atishi tweeted that the Arvind Kejriwal-led administration had called for a ban of 50 or more people on March 13, but the organisation continued holding the event till March 15.
