Who is 'Shree 420' in Delhi elections 2020? Netizens divided over this tweet
New Delhi, Jan 13: Delhi election 2020 is a closely contested three-dimensional political battle where the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has much at stake for this is the only place where it is in power.
Stakes are also high for the BJP as it has failed to make a comeback in Delhi since 1998. For the Congress, which formed three consecutive governments in the national capital under late Sheila Dikshit, can practically claim victory if it dampens BJP's chances of a return to power in Delhi.
The voting for the Delhi election 2020 will take place on February 8 and the results will be declared on February 11. However, one tweet by the BJP's Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Monday has netizens scratching their heads. Why do you ask?
Taking to Twitter, Swamy wrote,'' The more opposition parties oppose CAA, the better for BJP in elections. If these protests continue then Shree 420 may lose Delhi State elections.''

The Act, under which non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will be given Indian citizenship, came into force from January 10 after a gazette notification was issued by the Centre.
The CAA was passed by Parliament on December 11. There have been widespread protests against the CAA in different parts of the country. Those opposed to the legislation are saying it is for the first time that India will grant citizenship on the basis of religion, which violates the basic tenets of the country's Constitution. However, the government and ruling BJP have been defending the Act, saying minority groups from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have no other option but to come to India when they face religious persecution there.
