By Desher Samay: The aftershocks of the Delhi violence — said to be fuelled by hate speeches — still continuing, the hate spewing “goli maaro” slogan was heard near a rally in the heart of Kolkata this evening. The rally was addressed by Union minister Amit Shah, who spoke in favour of the contentious citizenship law and accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of “triggering riots” and “burning trains” to stop the law.

Video footage from the spot showed men, dressed in saffron and waving BJP flags, shouting the slogan, which roughly translates as “shoot all those who betray the nation” while on their way to the rally. A policeman could be seen shepherding the crowd.
