Statements like 'Goli Maaro' shouldn't have been made - Amit Shah on Delhi loss


New Delhi, Feb 13 (Agencies) : Union Minster Amit Shah today admitted that hate speeches by a section of BJP leaders should not have been made ahead of Delhi assembly polls. Such speeches could have hurt the party's chances in the election, he said while speaking at the Times Now Summit 2020.

"No one has said bahu betiyon ka balatkar karenge (wives and daughters will be raped). But the rest -- goli maaro, Indo-Pak match -- those also should not have made. The party distanced itself immediately," Amit Shah said, speaking for the first time since the Delhi election results were announced on Tuesday.

"All kinds of workers there who may say something but the public knows how the party is. But this is not the outlook of the party. May be we have also suffered because of this. We don't know exactly as voters could not write why they didn't vote. But maybe this could have been a reason," he said.

Many on social media pointed out that the BJP has not taken action against any of the leaders who crossed the line. A few of them, including Anurag Thakur, had received penalties from the Election Commission.

Shah also added that his "assessment" about the number of seats the party would have won has gone wrong. "I firmly believed our party would have won with majority. I don't mind accepting it... Most times I have been correct, this time i wasn't," he added, as elsewhere, the party conducted a post mortem of its poor performance.

The BJP performance in the Delhi elections fell far short of expectation.

Talking about the performance of BJP in the recently concluded assembly polls in the national capital, Shah said that people of Delhi had not rejected BJP. “It’s not like the people rejected us. Kejriwal was third in the Lok Sabha elections. That doesn’t mean that he was rejected by the people of Delhi. Election results are not a reflection on ideologies. We haven’t abandoned our ideology ever," said Shah while answering a question.

The home minister further said that there was no clause in the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which was against the minorities of the country and he was ready to debate on the issue. Shah also added that the union government would take steps that were beneficial for the nation and there was no personal stake in CAA.

“I want to tell all journalists not to talk about just anti-CAA protests but also about why the people are protesting. I have not found a clause in CAA due to which they feel that it is anti-Muslim. I am ready to debate if someone finds it," he said.

“There is nothing to protest against CAA. They should protest when there will be action. If they have a problem, they should talk to us about it. I have answered all the questions in Parliament. If they have more questions, I’m ready to answer," the minister added.

    Yogi Adityanath mentions Pakistan 8 times in 48 seconds at BJP rally for Delhi polls. Statements like 'Goli Maaro' shouldn't have been made says Home Minister Amit shah which saw four live shooting incident later on the protester after his own parties Junior Finance Minister Anurag Takur raised the slogan in the rally.
    The UP chief minister the Essence of Adityanath's Delhi Poll Speeches in each of which he gave speeches which ranged from mildly incendiary to outright hateful has Bullets, Biryani, Shaheen Bagh and Pakistan.
    When the information and culture minister of Punjab in Pakistan, Fayyazul Hassan Chohan, came up with anti-Hindu remarks in a recent speech, he was criticised by the country’s minorities and some senior party leaders too. Following a vigorous social media campaign in which scores of Pakistanis called him out, he was sacked. The Pakistani media reported that the sacking order came straight from Prime Minister Imran Khan.
    In Pakistan anti-Hindu minister fired .But Modi 's india the government won't act on 12 hate speech leaders the use of hate by high-profile politicians has increased almost 500% in the past four years.

    But the citizens of Delhi choose 'Development vs Division'. Why is Narendra Modi government is more obsessed with Pakistan?

    If BJP had won majority then "Goli Maro" - would not have been an issue I guess!

    The real issue perhaps was :
    1. Not condemning the Goli Maro statement then and now . He does not state it is wrong even now.
    2. No action taken against hate mongers with these virulent statements.
    3. Being silent when elected representatives from BJP blow " Dog whistles" and instigate people or communities against each other.

    I hope BJP does not destroy any progress made during the congress rule of 70 years in just 6 years!!!

    No use of fooling people...... the 7 seats which BJP won is also by cheating paying money to voters and by threatening..... . People now understand what BJP is.....
    People gave BJP 6 years..... and what you have done is nothing...... only Congress made half projects completing or pending Congress made projects renaming and giving new names....
    In 6 years what you have done is only humiliating... mokering... making fake news and threatening opposition.... .. and trying to make new rules against constitution.,...
    Economy in icu.. unemployments 50 years high . Criminals are like old bhraminians and takoor rule........frauds .... raping....showing superiority.... and main game play is looting the nation and it's people as much as possible.....this only BJP has done ...

    Kejriwal kept his focus to provide basic infrastructure.

    Also their innovative and people friendly schemes became popular.

    In last 2 years Kejri went for image makeover by focusing on work and not yelling on Modi and central govt

    How can a Tadipar, murder accused can be an angel???.
    8 seats you got are from blind Bhakths and from people who still believe in your unfulfilling fake promises.
    Kejriwal got 62 seats by fulfilling promises made by you.
    You claimed those 8 seats you got because people accepted CAA without question. Now why are you contradicting your party's opinion that ' Goli Maaro' shouldn't have been said.
    BTW, your party doesn't utter any parliamentary, decent words which reflects your party's principles and agenda. Next time say 'Balathkar Karke Goli Maarna Chahiye'. It suits you. Authentic . All rights reserved for BJP.

    Delhi people are more cleverer than you think and rejected you. Talking about surgical strikes- It was carried out my army and air force and not by BJP. Your party has not even given them proper gear and armaments according to recent reports.

    People read the news and listen to the news and well informed about what is happening around them.
