NEW DELHI: The venom of hate mongering which was spilled during the Delhi poll campaigning continues to spread in the national capital. Only the slogans have become more chilling, dangerous, and they have come closer.
Inside Rajiv Chowk Metro station on Saturday, some opposing and targeting those protesting against the Citizenship Amen-dment Act began shouting, “Desh ke gaddaor ko, goli maro saron ko (Kill all the traitors). During Delhi polls, Union minister Anurag Thakur and his men had raised the slogan, “Goli maro saalo ko.” “Saalo ko” has now been changed to “saron (all) ko.”
Six men, wearing saffron T-shirts and kurta, started the sloganeering when a train was about to halt at the Metro station on Saturday. After deboarding the train, they continued chanting pro-CAA and provocative slogans like “Shoot all the traitors”.
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.
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.
