Mishra, however, did not elaborate in his tweet as to which of the two rival parties he was referring to as Pakistan -- Aam Aadmi Party or the Congress.
Later, Mishra tweeted on the anti-CAA protests in Shaheen Bagh and compared the area with Pakistan.
He went on to say that Shaheen Bagh was being turned into 'Mini Pakistan'.
"Pakistan has been given entry in Shaheen Bagh, a small Pakistan is being made in Delhi. Pakistani rioters are occupying the streets of Delhi," he wrote.
