Coming out in support of BJP MP Anurag Thakur, who is facing flak for his ‘provocative’ slogans against anti-CAA protesters at a rally in Delhi, Karnataka Tourism Minister CT Ravi has said anti-nationals should get bullet and not biryani.

Ravi tweeted his support for the Union minister, two days after the latter had egged on the crowd at a poll rally in Delhi, to raise an incendiary slogan – “shoot the traitors” -- after he lashed out at anti-CAA protesters.

“Those attacking Union MoS @ianuragthakur for His statement against Traitors are the ones who- Opposed death to Terrorists Ajmal Kasab & Yakub Memon, Supported Tukde Tukde Gang, Spread lies against #CAA.

Anti-Nationals should get Bullet not Biryani. #IStandWithAnuragThakur,” Ravi said in the tweet.

The Election Commission on Tuesday had issued a showcause notice to Thakur for his alleged provocative slogan. PTI
