While campaigning for Faridabad Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Krishan Pal Gurjar in Haryana, Union Minister Kalraj Mishra on Sunday said that it had it been his state, he would have shot those creating problems.
The BJP MP from Deoria, Uttar Pradesh said, “Agar hamara pradesh hota to mein gadbad karne walo ko neeche utaar kar abhi goli mar deta (If it were my state, I would have got down from the stage and shoot the people creating trouble).”
Mishra was referring to people who were raising slogans against Gurjar.
Mishra’s comments didn’t go down well with Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala who said that the former’s statement reflected the violent mindset of the saffron party.
Read his tweet below, which also includes the video showing Mishra making that statement:
भाजपा की हिंसक मानसिकता का ताज़ा नमूना-
कलराज मिश्र जी ने फरीदाबाद सांसद के विरोध में नारे लगाने वालों को धमकी भरे लहजे में कहा-
“अगर यह उनका प्रदेश होता तो इस तरह गड़बड़ करने वालों को वह स्टेज से उतरकर गोली मार देते”
क्या ये है भाजपा का संदेश-
सवाल पूछो तो गोली खाओ!
