Praising them as “young revolutionaries”, the Delhi BJP garlanded and welcomed its eight Yuva Morcha workers who were let out on bail for protesting and indulging in vandalism outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s house.
They were arrested on March 31.
“Eight workers of BJP Yuva Morcha, who were jailed while protesting against anti-Hindu Kejriwal, got bail by the court after 14 days. Welcoming these young revolutionaries in the state office today. Each of our workers will always fight against the anti-Hindu forces,” Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta tweeted Thursday along with the photos.
हिंदू विरोधी केजरीवाल के खिलाफ प्रदर्शन करते वक्त जेल गए भाजपा युवा मोर्चा के 8 कार्यकर्ताओं को 14 दिनों बाद कोर्ट द्वारा जमानत मिली।
आज प्रदेश कार्यालय में अपने इन युवा क्रांतिकारियों का स्वागत किया।
हमारा प्रत्येक कार्यकर्ता हिंदू विरोधी ताकतों के खिलाफ सदैव लड़ता रहेगा। pic.twitter.com/O3Lo6I9RRd

The move attracted a swift response from the Aam Aadmi Party, saying it sent a message to its workers all over the country that they too will be felicitated if they indulge in “hooliganism and vandalism”.
“The high court did not grant bail to the accused for days. When they got the bail, the BJP office honoured these goondas,” said AAP leader Atishi at a press conference.
The accused, who staged a protest and vandalised the residence of the Chief Minister, had approached the high court after their bail pleas were dismissed by a trial court.
The BJP workers were protesting against Arvind Kejriwal’s remarks on the controversial film ‘The Kashmir Files’. The BJP has been demanding an apology from Mr Kejriwal.
