"Did any big politician die in the Hindu-Muslim violence? Why does not the politician die? Burn the politician, who tries to make you fight on the basis of religion and tried to create violence. Through this, he will understand that we won't burn others," Rajbhar said at an event in Aligarh.

"They try to divide Hindus and Muslims. Try to think once that as per the Constitution of India, a person who can vote is the citizen of India. You can't throw him out," he added.

Earlier on Saturday, Rajbhar had said that his party will part ways with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not want to continue with the alliance. Rajbhar, a minister in the Uttar Pradesh government has always been a bit critical of the BJP government.
