Watch: Congress MLA Alpesh Thakore’s hate speech in Gujarat, inciting mob to take to violence against non-Gujaratis

Days after widespread violence in Gujarat, shocking videos have emerged where Congress MLA from Gujarat, Alpesh Thakore is giving a hate speech against non-Gujaratis and instigating the mob to take to violence.

In a video which is believed to be from Becharaji, Gujarat, from last month, Alpesh could be heard saying, “all these outsiders who come here, they commit crime here which has led to increase in ‘goondagardi’. Villagers are beaten up and run off to their own hometown in other state after committing the crime. Is our Gujarat for such people?” Inciting people present there to take to violence, he said, “The trucks of these companies will be stopped and their doors will be broken.”

He then asks people how many are in a mood to fight? “Containers will be stopped, trucks will be stopped, and if needed, we will burn tyres.

In another video, he could be seen justifying violence.

The above video is edited by Japan Pathak, who tweeted it to put relevant portions. Full video could be seen here. He says, “Our system of protest is very clear. We don’t take to violence, we don’t break the law.” In the same interview, he says, “If these companies (which invest in Gujarat) do not give 85% of the jobs to Gujaratis, then tyres will burn, trucks will be stopped and trucks will be broken. I believe we should fight aggressively and now that same Alpesh Thakore is getting into the field to play his cards. We will then see how these ‘lions’ are dragged on to the roads.”

Adding how much he loves the colour of blood, he said, “We are going to put up an aggressive fight where you will be able to see blood on my white shirt. Because the red colour on your screen and that red colour is my identity. Along with that red and blue colour, we will lead a bloody protest.”

The recent violence in Gujarat followed a rape of a minor girl in a Thakor dominant village, after which a labourer from Bihar was arrested by police accusing him of the crime. After it was known that a person from Bihar has allegedly raped a Gujarati Thakor girl, it was reported that Kshatriya Thakor Sena instigated revenge violence against people from Bihar and UP working in the state, in various industries as well as people working as street vendors. The attacks were instigated by messages circulated in various social media networks. Following the attack, hordes of people from the two north Indian states have been leaving the state via buses and trains.

Later, evidence emerged that another Congress leader MV Thakore, also associated with Kshatriya Thakore Sena led by Alpesh Thakore, was seen threatening violence against non-Gujaratis. In the video, Thakore was seen threatening non-Gujarati people of massive violence if they don’t leave the state, and he had given them time till 9 PM on 8th October to do so. He said that after the deadline is over, he does not want to see anyone from Bihar and UP in his village. Everyone from Bihar and UP will have to leave, and they will come again to check, he added.

Gujarat minister and chief minister have urged the migrant workers who had left to come back and assured them of safety.

Meanwhile, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, instead of questioning leader of his own party for such hate speech, has decided to brazen it out by blaming ‘unemployment’ for the violence.
