TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ Union home minister Amit Shah has disapproved of statements like ‘goli maro’ and ‘Indo-Pak match’ by a few Bharatiya Janata Party leaders during the Delhi assembly poll campaign and said these remarks may have been one of the possible reasons for the party’s defeat.
He, however, said the BJP does not fight elections just for victory or defeat but believes in expanding its ideology through polls.”Such statements should not have been made. Our party has distanced itself from such remarks,” he told.
Shah was asked a question about a few BJP leaders raising slogans like ‘goli maro’ and talking about the ‘Indo-Pak match’ during the Delhi elections campaigning. He admitted that the BJP may have suffered in the polls because of the statements made by some of its leaders.
“It is possible that our performance may have suffered because of this,” he said. Shah said his assessment on Delhi elections went wrong but asserted that the result of the polls was not a mandate on the Citizenship Amendment Act or the National Register of Citizens. He said anyone who wants to discuss issues related to CAA with him can seek time from his office. “(We) will give time within three days,” he added.
