NEW DELHI: After Union minister Anurag Thakur and BJP parliamentarian Parvesh Verma, Uttar Pradesh Chief Ministe Yogi Adityanath became the third key leader to trigger a ‘goli ‘controversy.
“Goli se” advise
During a rally in East Delhi’s Karawal Nagar Chowk, Adityanath said that those who attack Kanwariyas will have to face police bullets.
Adityanath warned that if “boli” (words) cannot convince the protesters, “goli” (bullet) will does.
Addressing a rally, Adityanath said, “We do not obstruct anyone’s festival or faith. Let everyone celebrate festivals within the framework of the law. Lekin Shiv bhakto par goli chalayega koi vyakti, danga karayega, boli se nahi manega toh goli se toh maan hi jayega” (If anyone opens fire at devotees of Lord Shiva or cause riots. If they don’t listen to words, they will be dealt with bullets).
Earlier on Saturday, Adityanath alleged that those who support terrorists in Kashmir are staging protest and raising slogans of ‘azadi’ at Shaheen Bagh.
Over the past month-and-a-half, hundreds of women, young and elders with children, have been protesting against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh.
Ahead of the coming assembly elections in Delhi, the leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party and supporters have been openly instigating violence and advocating the use of extreme force against the protesters.
