On Saturday, a photo of the man with BJP MP Gopal Shetty, identifying him as the party’s north Mumbai minority cell chief, surfaced on social media.

The Congress, seizing the opportunity, launched a scathing attack on the BJP, which has promised to rid the country of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants, the NDTV reported.

“The chief of the north Mumbai BJP minority cell has turned out to be Bangladeshi. We want to ask the BJP, is this Sangh Jihad? Are there special provisions under the CAA for BJP? One law for the country, another for the BJP,” Sawant tweeted.
