As the elections are round the corner, people have started wearing their hearts on their sleeves(literally) to express their support for their favoured political party. But this has been unpalatable for Congress loyalists who have once again exhibited their propensity for violence against the supporters of their political rivals.

In the constituency of PM Modi, Varanasi, a third-year college student wearing ‘NaMo Again’ sweatshirt was heckled and intimidated by the lumpen Congress elements. The Congress goons literally sweated over ‘NaMo Again’ sweatshirt donned by one of the Modi supporters at the Congress rally venue.
When the Republic TV news reporter asked about her views on Congress, the college student responded that Priyanka Gandhi was absent from the electoral scene in the last 5 years, she has come now only to rescue her brother. This shows their opportunistic approach, she said. Congress goons present in the vicinity were further annoyed when she claimed that when Rahul Gandhi is asked to prove ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ jibe, he says he doesn’t know it.
This rattled the Congress supporters present at the venue so much so that they started name-calling and heckling the student. As if this was not enough, she was also physically intimidated by the Congress goons for extending her support to Modi and criticising Rahul Gandhi-led Congress. She had to leave the venue in face of mounting threats from the truculent Congress supporters.
A couple of days back, Congress supporters in Bengaluru attacked techies in Manyata tech park when they chanted Pro-Modi slogans on the arrival of the Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Shockingly, the techies were also lathi-charged by the Karnataka Police for raising pro-Modi slogans. The recent spurt in attacks by unnerving Congress supporters against those expressing their allegiance to Modi reveals their despondency on their party’s fate in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
