As three members of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were arrested on Monday for raising ‘desh ke ghaddaron ko…’ slogans in Esplanade area in Kolkata, #GoliWaleBJPGunde became one of the top trending topics on Twitter.
On Sunday, BJP workers had shouted the provocative slogan en route to the Shahid Minar ground, where Home Minister Amit Shah was addressing a rally.
The action by police was taken after a complaint was registered against them at New Market Police Station.
Here is compilation of some of the tweets with the #GoliWaleBJPGunde slamming the ruling BJP
Earlier, on Saturday, pro-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) sloganeering and incendiary chants of "shoot the traitors" were made inside a train on Delhi Metro's Blue Line and also at the Rajiv Chowk metro station by a group of young men.
About half a dozen men, wearing saffron T-shirts and kurta, started shouting the provocative slogan when the train was about to stop at the metro station, according to a PTI reporter who was at the spot.
After deboarding the train, they continued chanting pro-CAA and provocative slogans like "shoot the traitors" and one more literally meaning that the "youth of the country is out to support and defend CAA".
While some commuters joined the CAA supporters in their sloganeering, others were quick to get their cameras out to make videos. Many at the station were seemingly taken aback by the spontaneity and the unusual choice of the venue.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, responsible for the security of the Delhi Metro, intercepted the protesters and handed them over to the Delhi Police.
