The slogan was raised by BJP workers during a roadshow organized in West Bengal's Hooghly district on Jan 20, 2021.At a roadshow organized by the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) on Jan 20, 2021, at the Chandernagore city in the Hoogly district of West Bengal, the party supporters shouted slogans demanding the shooting of the betrayers of the country. The slogan said, “desh ke gaddaron ko, goli maaro saalo ko,” reported the Times of India.

According to the report, the party’s district youth wing chief Suresh Shaw justified the statement saying, “We are not spreading violence”. Shaw added, in fact, he was asking the army to shoot the traitors of the country.

However, according to a report by The Hindu, the party leaders distanced themselves from the slogan. BJP spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said that the party does not endorse the slogan.

According to the report, following the incident, the district police registered a Suo Motu case and arrested three party leaders, including the Hooghly district youth wing chief.

According to a New Indian Express report, the other two workers have been identified as Robin Ghosh, the convener of the BJP’s health cell, and Prabhat Gupta, president of the Bandel Mandal Youth Front.

A similar slogan by BJP leader and Union minister Anurag Thakur had triggered a massive row in the country in Jan 2020.
