दिन-रात एक कर जनता को इस महामारी से बचाने में लगे पुलिसकर्मियों पर हमला बर्दाश्त नहीं किया जाएगा!— Shivraj Singh Chouhan (@ChouhanShivraj) April 7, 2020

अराजकता फैलाने वाले गुंडे-बदमाशों को सबक सिखाना अतिआवश्यक है!
इन गुंडों पर राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा कानून के तहत कार्रवाई की जाएगी! pic.twitter.com/sKrnWBoaCX
