Karnataka minister's new solution - 'shoot -at -sight'

Karnataka minister BC Patil has come out with a new solution to stop the anti-India slogans. It has slightly differed from the 'goli maro' slogan. “I will ask the Central government to bring in an ordinance to shoot- at -sight people who shout slogans against India," Patil said. The minister first mentioned the topic last week, at the peak of the violence in Delhi, that was seen as fallout of hate speech by a section of BJP leaders ahead of the assembly elections in Delhi. The BJP minister Anurag Thakur and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had endorsed the use of guns on people considered traitors and terrorists. The BJP -- which started focus on anti-India slogans after an event in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University – has repeatedly accused the Arvind Kejriwal government of shielding the perpetrators by withholding assent for their trial.
