After posters in Central Delhi announcing a bounty of 15 laks on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, now a BJP worker in Gujarat has said that the JNU students and professors should be shot to get a quick fix solution.
According to report, Sanjay Rathod, convener of BJP’s information technology cell in Junagadh, Gujarat in the we hours of Wednesday tweeted as “Shoot Anti-National JNU students & Proff and close the chapter. But one problem is that our Govt doesn’t allow to kill dogs.
“#Wake-UpIndia or it will be too late. There are big forces who want to break India. They are funding #antinationals & paid media.”
In yet another tweet in Hindi, he wrote, “Kal se jo 10 aatankwadi Gujarat mein ghuse hain, unme se kaun kiska beta, beti, bahu hai, yeh abhi se tay kar lein, baad mein Ishrat Jahan ki tarah lafda nahin chahiye. (Decide son, daughter, daughter-in-law among the 10 terrorists who infiltrated Gujarat yesterday. Don’t want an affair like Ishrat Jahan later.)”
“As a BJP member, I am supposed to express my opinion and counter views opposed to my party. I am also supposed to support those supporting our line of thinking,” Rathod told the Indian Express.
Rathod’s Twitter account says he is a “social media expert, director Gujarati TV, IT cell convener of Junagadh BJP and a member of state working committee of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM). His Twitter account has more than 1.19 lakh followers, including Gujarat’s Minister of State for Science and Technology, Govind Patel.
He works as a public relations consultant with an agency in Rajkot. The tweets were later found deleted though Rathod says he stand by what he tweeeted.
It is to be noted that, hee had been felicitated by the Gujarat government in August 2012 for “creating the largest Facebook group in India, having more than 16 lakh members”.
