Congress workers in poll-bound Rajasthan’s Bikaner had gathered for campaigning ahead of the state elections and former state education minister Dr BD Kalla was also present. The supporter next to him began to chant “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, but he was immediately stopped. After receiving some instructions from BD Kalla, he later chanted “Sonia Gandhi Zindabad, Rahul Gandhi Zindabad, Ahmed Patel Zindabad, Sachin Pilot (Zindabad)…” and other leaders’ names.
BJP President Amit Shah slammed the Congress party after a video went viral and said that Congress party should be ashamed for refusing to chant ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. He questioned the priorities of the Congress party and its leaders.
“The Congress should be ashamed. What is your priority? What is in your heart? You have no right to eat grains of this earth if a slogan hailing mother India does not inspire you to do something for the country. This shows the ugly mindset of the Congress,” said Mr Shah.
The elections to 200 seat Rajasthan legislative assembly will be conducted in a single phase on December 7, 2018, and the results will be announced along with the results of four other states on December 11, 2018.
