BJP leader says protesting ‘farmers eating biryani may lead to bird flu’

Rajasthan Jan 10 (KINS): In bizarre comment, a BJP leader from Rajasthan has said that the farmers’ agitation around New Delhi could lead to a nationwide bird flu problem since the protesters are eating chicken biriyani to spread the epidemic.

In a video doing the rounds on social media, Ramganj Mandi MLA Madan Dilawar is also seen saying that those who are conspiring to create such a crisis in the country could be “terrorists, robbers, and thieves”. 

Attacking the farmer protesters, Dilawar says in the video that the “protesting farmers aren’t giving a thought to the country or its people. “The protest is only a picnic”, he says.

They are merely relishing biriyani. They are eating kaju-badam (dry fruits). They are enjoying in all ways. They are changing their appearances frequently. There could be many terrorists among them. Thieves and looters, too. They could be the enemies of farmers,” Dilawar says.

“I suspect that if the government does not remove them in the next few days, either by pleading or by use of force, then the country will face the problem of bird flu,” he said.

His comments are aimed at the thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan who have been camped in and around Delhi in decrepit conditions for the past many weeks.
