In the backdrop of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi’s statement that he would not chant Bharat Mata ki Jai , BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, on Tuesday, said those who did want to say the slogan have no right to stay in India.
“I feel that those who don’t want to chant Bharat Mata Ki Jai have no right to stay in India. They should go to some other country,” Mr. Vijayvargiya told reporters.
Mr. Owaisi had said he will not chant Bharat Mata ki Jai even if a knife is put to his throat.
On March 3, Mr. Bhagwat had said the new generation needed to be taught to chant slogans hailing Mother India, comments which came against the backdrop of the row over alleged anti-India sloganeering on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus.
