Congress spokesperson openly threatens a journalist during a debate on Zee News

Sharma later clarified that he meant those who have gone against the nation to be jailed under sedition.

Congress spokesperson Alok Sharma was caught live on camera threatening a journalist that in 2019 (if Congress comes to power) you won’t be able to count how many people will be jailed.

In a 70 second clip shared by BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia on Twitter, it can be seen that Sharma, on being questioned about the derogatory words used by various Congress leaders for PM Modi as well as Raj Babbar‘s downplaying Naxalism by likening Naxals to ‘revolutionaries’, loses his cool and threatens the journalist. Sharma can be heard saying, “after 2019 you will not even be able to count how many would go to jail.”

When the journalist questioned him whether he is threatening him that he will be jailed for sedition, Sharma clarified that he didn’t mean the journalist but those who indulge in sedition will be jailed by Congress in 2019.

A similar threat was recently issued by Sanjay Jha, Congress spokesperson after journalist Arnab Goswami was appointed the member of Nehru Museum.

It would appear as though Congress is all set to indulge in revenge politics if it is voted back to power in 2019.
