Mishra, who has been fielded as the BJP's candidate from the Model Town constituency, courted controversy recently when he tweeted on 23 January that the upcoming polls will be a contest "between India and Pakistan". Mishra was criticising the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in different parts of the city and tweeted, "India vs Pakistan 8th February Delhi. There will be a contest on Delhi Roads between India and Pakistan on February 8."

The Election Commission on 25 January imposed a 48-hour campaigning ban on Mishra.
