“Strict action should be taken on BJP leaders,” says Chirag Paswan over Delhi violence

Ram Vilas Paswan, also spoke to media and said: “The fact riots continued during US President Donald Trump’s visit is a blot on India

New Delhi: Lok Janshakti Party leader Chirag Paswan has demanded strict action against three BJP leaders accused of instigating the violence in some parts of Delhi, killing 38 people and injuring over 300. While addressing media he slammed at Union Minister Anurag Thakur, Lok Sabha MP Parvesh Verma, and local leader Kapil Mishra. He claimed that a trend of making hate speeches began with Thakur and his call to “goli maaro (gun down) traitors”.

Paswan said “I demand that BJP central leadership take strict action against BJP leaders guilty of instigating violence in Delhi: Kapil Mishra, Anurag Thakur, and Parvesh Verma. Administrative action must also be taken against them,”.

He added “This trend started during Delhi Assembly polls when Anurag Thakur said “goli maaro (gun down) traitors”, which led to a firing incident and also violence. Recently Mishra threatened anti-CAA protesters in front of police. If action had been initiated against him promptly then perhaps violence would not have spread,”.

Ram Vilas Paswan, also spoke to media and said: “The fact riots continued during US President Donald Trump’s visit is a blot on India. Strict action must be taken against all those who are guilty”.

LGP Chief also said he would make his objections known if a similar strategy were employed during Assembly polls in his state later this year; the BJP and the LJP are allies.

Meanwhile, Paswan also criticized the central government and Delhi Police of failing to suspend mobile internet in affected areas – a tactic employed frequently by the Modi government to quell agitations.
