Aligarh: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Raghuraj Singh has said people raising slogans against Prime Minster Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath will be buried alive.
Singh made the statement on Sunday while addressing a rally in Aligarh to create awareness about the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Warning "these handful of people, one percent criminal and corrupt people” against saying “murdabad” to the prime minister and the UP chief minster, 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 protests held by students of Aligarh Muslim University against the CAA recently.
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 is an advisor in a unit of Labour Department.
