Surat, Mar 21 IBNS | 5 months ago

A Congress supporter allegedly put up anti-Narendra Modi posters at Udhna and Pandesara areas of Gujarat's Surat city on Thursady night.


Anup Rajput, whose uncle Dhansukh Rajput fought the Lok Sabha polls in 2009 on a Congress ticket, put up posters which showed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in conversation with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) supremo Raj Thackeray.

The posters read: "'Jaage UP, Jaage Bihar .. kare matadaan toh jeete Hindustan' (Rise UP, rise Bihar, vote to make India win)."

"'UP, Bihar ke logon ko chun chun ke maara tha Maharashtra mein, ab aaya hain mauka, aapke chunaav ka, hamare chunaav ka' (People from UP, Bihar were killed in Maharashtra, now we have got an opportunity for your election, our election)," read the posters.

"Dushman ka dushman dost hota hain .. toh dushman ka dost dushman kyun nahi?' (If an enemy's enemy is a friend, then why should an enemy's friend not be an enemy?)," the posters said.

Pertinently, MNS is infamous for its violence towards North Indian people residing in Maharashtra.
