BJP leader Kapil Mishra on Saturday, 21 December, took to Twitter to share a video of a rally in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act where he and others can be seen shouting slogans in favour of shooting ‘traitors’.
“Goli maaron saalon ko, desh ke gaddaron ko (Shoot them, the anti-nationals) “, people can be heard chanting in the video.
Mishra tweeted saying, “We too have come out on the streets; let there be no misunderstanding: We know how to win in Parliament, we also know how to win on the street. I have come out on to the streets with thousands of youths of Delhi.”
Former AAP Minister and disqualified MLA, Mishra joined the BJP in August 2019 after Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel disqualified him under the anti-defection law him earlier the same month.
As an AAP Minister, Mishra has a controversial history, criticising the AAP supremo after being removed from office in May 2017. He often even shared the stage with BJP leaders in public events while in office.
