Slanderous slogans raised in Delhi Metro

29 Feb 2020 Delhi: A group of people broke out into chants of “desh ke gaddaron ko, goli maaro saalon ko” (“shoot the traitors”) in the heart of Delhi inside the Rajiv Chowk metro station on Saturday morning. The slogan has become a popular war-cry used by Hindutva groups and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party to threaten violence against anti-government protestors, including those who have been opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Register of Citizens across India. Saxena, who was having coffee when he heard the slogans, told Scroll.in: “There were about 10 people in the group”. They stood near the platform where blue line trains depart for Noida.
