Updated:1 month, 2 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Jan 01 (ANI): In an exclusive interview with ANI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi touched upon the issue of political violence in the country. PM Modi said, “As a worker of the BJP, I strongly condemn it. We have suffered a lot. In West Bengal, BJP is not even allowed to exercise its democratic rights. During elections, the way our workers are killed, it does not reflect well on democracy. In Kerala, our workers are killed day in and day out.” “In Karnataka, so many of our workers have been killed that we can’t even fathom. Our workers have been killed in Tamil Nadu. In Assam, our workers have been killed. In Jammu and Kashmir, our workers are being killed. The question is not whether our workers are killed or not, but this political violence is not good for our democracy and all political parties will have to think about it. I want to assure BJP workers and their families that the government does not tolerate any form of violence, be it by any party. We are committed to ensure justice to everyone.”
