BJP leader threatens to 'bury alive' those raising anti-Modi, Yogi slogans
Aligarh: Stirring controversy by delivering a tendentious statement, BJP leader Raghuraj Singh, threatened people to “bury alive” those who raise slogans against Prime Minster Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Singh’s disputable remark came when he was addressing a rally in Aligarh, on Sunday, to create awareness about the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Warning “these handful of people — one per cent criminal and corrupt people against saying murdabad to Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minster Adityanath, he said, I will bury you alive.”

“Yogi and Modi are not the ones who will get perturbed. Yogi-Modi will run the country and run it like this only,” Singh said.
“Those taking money from Dawood Ibrahim and troubling our officers, and Muslims will be beaten up badly,” he said.
Singh, who hails from Aligarh, was apparently referring to protests held by students of Aligarh Muslim University against the CAA recently.
The BJP immediately distanced itself from Singh’s controversial remarks, with party spokesperson Chandramohan saying “Raghuraj Singh is neither a minister nor an MLA.”
Labour Welfare Council chairman Sunil Bharala said Raghuraj Singh is an advisor in a unit of Labour Department.
