“Those who are unsafe in this country are anti-nationals and do not deserve to be [here]. Give me a ministry and I will attach bombs on their posteriors and blast,” the BJP aspiring minister expressed outrage at a flag raising ceremony in UP’s Muzaffarnagar.
When asked about his aggressive demeanour he responded by saying that it was his usual parlance and of the people in his village.
The BJP leader lashed out at the Congress for repealing previously mandatory recitation of Vande Mataram in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
“A law should be introduced against such people who are against Vande Mataram and they should be considered anti-nationals.”
Saini has encouraged violence along communal lines even in the past. Earlier he shunned New Year celebrations saying that they were ‘christian’ not ‘hindu’ festivities.
