After Borivali, people in Malad greet Congress candidate Urmila Matondkar with ‘Modi Modi’ slogans

BJP MLA from Kandivali, Atul Bhatkhalkar asserted that the shouting of pro-Modi slogans in Urmila Matondkar's rallies is a crystal-clear indication of the presence of Modi wave.

Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar who was scheduled to begin her campaign from Malad (East) and go up to Kandivali (East) on Tuesday was once again greeted with citizens chanting pro-Modi slogans for the second day on the trot.

Matondkar is the Congress candidate for Mumbai North and is currently on a campaign trail to woo the voters. A video, which is doing the rounds on the internet shows how a few bystanders started chanting pro-Modi slogans as soon as Ms Matondkar’s rally entered the thickly populated area of the diamond market in Malad. However, Urmila didn’t lose her calm and kept waiving at the people.

“I don’t know who they were. If some people want to disrupt my rally, they can do it. I believe in the Freedom of Expression which the present government has tried to suppress in the last four and a half years. I remained calm in the rally. I don’t know who would want to shout pro-Modi slogans in the diamond market area which crashed overnight after the demon of demonetisation hit all of us,” Urmila said.

BJP MLA from Kandivali, Atul Bhatkhalkar asserted that the shouting of pro-Modi slogans in Urmila Matondkar’s rallies is a crystal-clear indication of the presence of Modi wave. He also held Congress workers responsible for the scuffle that broke out on Monday in which Congress workers had beaten up people shouting pro-Modi chants.

The BJP candidate Gopal Shetty claimed that like the candidates have a right to campaign, people can also voice their support freely. He alleged that it was wrong on the part of Congress workers to beat up people who chanted Pro-Modi slogans and urged the Election Commission to look into the matter.

In a similar incident that had happened on Monday, Urmila had sought police protection after a scuffle broke out between Congress workers and BJP supporters at Borivali station. A video has emerged in which the outraged Congress supporters can be seen resorting to violence against the people chanting “Modi Modo” slogans in Urmila Matondkar’s rally in Borivali.
