Including several other residents. On social media, he said that the protests were led by right-wing groups. 

Protest leader Ajit Swami, who is also chairman of the All Dwarka Residents Federation (ADRF), said on the contrary, he said it was the association of more than 300 villages near Dawrka that led the protest . 

 “We have written to Deputy Governor Anil Baijal, who is also the chairman of the DDA (Delhi Development Authority), asking him to cancel the allocation of the Hajj building. If the Hajj building is built here, there will be problematic lawyers.” Swami said. 

LG did not respond to a request for comment.
