German Chancellor Angela Merkel got booed while addressing the crowd consisting of around 2000 people where she said, “We want to help those who’d like to stay with us in the long term to integrate and to learn the language.
“We also tell them: Germany is such a beautiful country and such a strong country because we have a constitution that protects the dignity of every person, and at the same time it demands tolerance.”
Chancellor Merkel’s party had faced a humiliating defeat at the hands of anti-immigration AfD party earlier this month and is about to contest in a set of regional elections by the end of the week.
Her speech was perceived by the public as an arrogant as they called her to step down and chanted slogan,” Merkel has ro go”. The fame of her own political outfit the Christian Democrats (CDU) has hit a four year low.
Merkel is under tremendous pressure from various corners of her country regarding the way she has handled the migrant crisis. Christian Democrats is at number three with 17 per cent of the vote, behind the Green Party on 19 per cent and the Social Democrats (SDP) on 21 per cent.
