Those who chant ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ will stay in India, according to BJP Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh Jai Ram Thakur.

At a press conference in Shimla on Tuesday, he said that those who said ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ would stay, and those who did not do that; those who opposed India; those who disrespected the constitutional system again and again; and those who, for purely political reasons, were working with a mindset to prove that things were not alright in the country should be dealt with firmly.

Mr. Thakur was reacting to a question whether the Delhi violence was a result of politics in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit.
