‘Stop intimidating youth’: Amit Shah slams Rahul Gandhi over arrest of techies who raised ‘pro-Modi’ slogans

New Delhi/ Bengaluru: BJP president Amit Shah Tuesday targeted Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over the alleged arrest of some techies in Bengaluru for raising pro-Modi slogans. He accused the grand old party of “intimidating the youth of India.

“Hugs for ‘Tukde Tukde’ gang and arrest of peaceful youth raising pro-Modi slogans? Where are the champions of ‘Free Speech’? Yuvraj (prince) of CONgress must know that time follows the course taken by youngsters. Stop intimidating youth of India, which has rejected your brand of politics,” Shah tweeted.

This comes after a few youths were held by the police on Monday after they raised pro-Modi slogans at an event in Bengaluru where Congress president Rahul Gandhi was addressing entrepreneurs.

The BJP chief in his tweet tagged a post by his party’s Karnataka unit which said the state police had arrested some techies for raising pro-Modi slogans at Manyata Tech Park in Bengaluru. Gandhi was to address a meeting at the venue.

“This is the real face of democracy in a Cong-JD(S) ruled state. It’s total dictatorship where freedom of choice & expression of citizens is suppressed,” it had said, posting a purported video of some people being taken away by cops.
