Amit Shah Rally in Kolkata

BJP Supporters Shout Inflammatory ‘Goli Maro’ Slogan in Kolkata At Amit Shah’s Rally


The slogan ‘Goli Maro’, which has become a riot with violence in Delhi, was heard this time in Kolkata. When Union Home Minister Amit Shah was in the meeting of the Shaheed Minar, a group of BJP activist supporters were heard saying ‘Desh Ke Gaddaron Ko / Goli Maro Salon Ko’. But the police stopped the BJP workers in the middle of the procession.


At 2.20 pm on this day, seven to eight BJP workers came out of the gate no. 6 at the Esplanade Metro Station. They had party flags in their hands. At that time some people were protesting in the alley next to the Grand Hotel. In their hands are posters against the Amended Citizenship Act (CAA) and National Citizenship Registration (NRC). Anti-Amit posters were also in the hands of the protesters. At that time, the BJP activists and supporters of the protestors were giving the slogan ‘Goli Maro’ in Delhi.


Those BJP workers came to the barricade to offer slogans. Some of the protesters tried to bar outside the counter barricade. The moment the excitement arises. Top officials of the Kolkata Police were present at the scene. They came between the two sides to control the situation. They quickly separated the two sides. Three men were arrested. At the scene, Joint Commissioner (Crime) Muralidhar Sharma, Additional Commissioner DP Singh, along with several police officers were present.

The policemen present spoke to the protesters. He requested them to move away. In the end, the gathering was removed. However, protests were still going on in the street up to the municipality building. There was no unpleasant situation as there was a huge police force on the spot that day.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur raised the slogan for the first time to protest Shaheen Bagh in campaigning for the Delhi assembly vote. The slogan was widely debated in the face of votes. After the huge win over Amit Shah, Amit Shah confessed that it was not right to say provocative and hateful words.

But within a few days, the situation changed. It has been alleged that BJP leaders such as Kapil Mishra, Prakash Burma, have been carrying out provocative slogans freely in the wake of the Delhi Violence. Last Tuesday, BJP MLA Abhay Barma also raised the slogan ‘Goli Maro’. The slogan also became controversial on Saturday at Rajiv Chak, a busy metro station in Delhi.
