He did not name any party but said that “vested political interests” were behind the incidents of “pre-poll” violence. He said so while answering a question posed by Rajdeep Sardesi to the Aam Aadmi Party in relation to incidents of recent clashes between Hindu and Muslim communities in Delhi’s Tirlokpuri area.

“Manish spoke to police comm yesterday. We r also in touch wid local police. (2/3)”
“Pre-poll commnal violnce becming pattern.Togethr v hv to frustrate efforts of vested political interests,who behind it(3/3”.
