“If you raise slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi or Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, I will bury you alive,” Raghuraj Singh threatened.
ALIGARH — While addressing a rally in Aligarh to muster support for the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) 2019 on Sunday, Uttar Pradesh Minister Raghuraj Singh has said that people who raise slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath “would be buried alive”, courting a fresh controversy.
BJP leader Raghuraj Singh said, ” I will bury all such people alive who raise slogans against prime minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.”
“If you raise slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi or Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, I will bury you alive,” he threatened, reports IANS.
He was apparently referring to protests held by students of Aligarh Muslim University against the CAA during which they allegedly raised slogans against the Prime Minister and the chief minister.
The minister further said: “These one per cent people are opposing the CAA. They stay in India, eat up our taxes and then raise ‘murdabad’ slogans against the leaders. This country belongs to people of all faiths, but slogan shouting against the Prime Minister or chief minister is unacceptable.”
Indirectly Threatening anti-CAA protesters, BJP leader said, “beware! Modi is at the Centre and Yogi in Uttar Pradesh, you will be jailed under POTA, No bail, don’t spoil your future,’ reports Dainik Bhaskar.
IANS reports that Raghuraj Singh also launched an attack on India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. “What was Nehru’s caste? He did not have a ‘khaandan’,” he claimed.
