BJP leader’s threat to those raising slogans against PM, CM

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Raghuraj Singh has courted a major controversy by saying people raising slogans against Prime Minster Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath “will be buried alive”.

Singh issued the shocking threat on Sunday while addressing a rally in Aligarh to create awareness about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya was also present on the dais.

Warning “these handful of people, one per cent criminal and corrupt people” against saying ‘murdabad’ to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minster Yogi Adityanath,” he said, “I will bury you alive.”

“Yogi and Modi are not the ones who will get perturbed. Yogi-Modi will run the country and run it like this only,” Singh said.

“Those taking money from Dawood Ibrahim and troubling our officers and Muslims will be beaten up badly,” he said.

Singh, who hails from Aligarh, was apparently referring to the recent protests held by students of Aligarh Muslim University against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

The BJP immediately distanced itself from Singh’s controversial remarks, with party spokesperson Chandramohan saying “Raghuraj Singh is neither a minister nor an MLA.”

Labour Welfare Council Chairman Sunil Bharala said Raghuraj Singh was an adviser in a unit of Labour department.
