Muslim candidate threatens Hindus: SP govt coming, ‘chun-chun kar badla lenge’

'Insha'Allah, chun-chun kar inse badla lenge, inko chhodenge nahin; hamari sarkar aa rahi hai,' the Muslim candidate of the SP from Meerut (South) says

Samajwadi Party from Meerut, Aadil Chaudhary

A video showing the Muslim candidate of the Samajwadi Party from Meerut, Aadil Chaudhary, has gone viral where he is heard saying that his party is going to form government in the state after the Assembly polls and that they will take “chun-chun kar badla lenge (pick one target at a time and exact revenge)”.

“Our government is coming to power in the state, Insha‘Allah, we will not leave them. The way we are being persecuted by them, we will take revenge so that they would think 100 times before exploiting us,” the Muslim candidate of the SP tells a group of party members in the video, in an apparent reference to Hindus, supposedly the core voters of the BJP government.

The SP has fielded Chaudhary from the Meerut South seat for the assembly election to be held here in February. The Muslim candidate later said that not he but the voters will take revenge on the BJP and that his statement was being misconstrued.

Taking note of the video, police in Meerut said that they were examining the video and assured appropriate action. Superintendent of Police, Meerut, Vineet Bhatnagar said that if the SP candidate’s statement was found to be violating poll norms, police would initiate action against him.

The SP had released its first list of 159 candidates yesterday for the upcoming Assembly elections.

SP chief Akhilesh Yadav will contest the polls from Karhal in District Mainpuri while his uncle and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) president Shivpal Singh Yadav will contest from Jaswantnagar.
