BJP General Secretary Saroj Pandey on Sunday warned CPI (M) cadres that if they continue to stare at BJP-RSS cadres in Kerala, then their eyes will be gouged out, and that too in their own houses.
"If we have started this march (Janaraksha Yatra), it is because if in coming days, they keep on staring at us, then we will barge into their homes and will gouge their eyes out," Pandey told reporters.
Saroj Pandey may have believed that the warning was enough to send a chill down the spines of CPI(M) cadres in Kerala, but she was so wrong. Malayalis online aren’t amused with the BJP leader’s statement and are replying with the hashtag #GougeDa.
Many tweets with pictures of social media users or popular actors wearing sunglasses mocking the BJP leader were trending on Monday. The basic message, you can’t gouge out our eye, what a joke!
