Cannot say ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’, are you from Pak: Sonali Phogat

Sonali Phogat, BJP candidate from Adampur, on Monday landed in a controversy when she referred to a section of people in her public meeting as Pakistanis, saying she was ashamed of such people.

The nominee of TikTok fame was addressing a public meeting in Balsamand, the largest village in the segment. As she was called to address the gathering, she urged people to raise the slogan “Bharat Mata ki jai”.

In a video which went viral on social media, she pointed to people on the right side of the stage, asking them why they were not chanting the slogan with her.

“Tum Pakistan se aaye ho kya? Agar Hindustan ke niwasi ho to Bharat Mata ki jai bolo. (Have you come from Pakistan? If your are Indians, raise the slogan of Bharat Mata ki jai),” she said.

She raised the slogan again and then commented, “Sharam aati hai aise logo pe ki aap jaise bhi Hindustani hote hai jo chhote star ki rajniti karne ke liye apne desh ki jai nahi bolte. Thoo hai aise logo pe. (It is a shame that such people are in Hindustan who do not sloganeer for the country due to petty politics. Spit on such people).”
