Delhi polls: 'Shoot down traitors' chants emerge at Anurag Thakur's rally

New Delhi/IBNS: Union Minister Anurag Thakur was caught on camera on Monday chanting the first half of the slogan to which the people present at a rally in Delhi concluded saying "gun down traitors."

In the video, which has been widely shared, Thakur was heard saying: "desh ke gaddaron ko", to which the crowd enthusiastically replied "goli maaro sa***n ko" which means the "traitors of the country should be shot down."

Thakur is the BJP candidate in North West Delhi.

The BJP has reacted to this stating that it was not Thakur but the public present at the rally who chanted the second half of the slogan, which is the "shooting down of traitors" part.

But controversy has been raised since Thakur was present at the rally where this kind of chant was heard and that the Union Minister remained unfazed by them.

The Election Commission has told NDTV that they would take necessary action against a video speech received from Rithala constituency.

Earlier BJP leader Kapil Mishra made an alleged communal tweet against those protesting the Citizenship Amendment Act ahead of the Delhi assembly polls.

The poll body had then asked micro-blogging site Twitter to remove the post that called the protest areas in Delhi against CAA as "mini-Pakistans."

The EC had slammed the comment as "highly objectionable" and that it "appeals to communal feelings."

In a post in Hindi, Mishra wrote: "Pakistan is entering through Shaheen Bagh, and mini-Pakistans are being created in Delhi...Shaheen Bagh, Chand Bagh, Inderlok. The law is not followed here and Pakistani rioters are occupying the roads."

In another post, he had termed the Delhi Assembly Election as "India vs Pakistan" clash.

Delhiites will vote for the Assembly polls on Feb 8.
