Dalit Beaten to Death. Rahul Gandhi Blames BJP-RSS

Dalit Beaten to Death
Dalit Beaten to Death

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today expressed his dismay over the incident in which a Dalit youth was beaten to death.

Reports suggest that the ghastly crime took place in Rajkot which is a city in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s state of Gujarat. It reminds people of 2002 Gujarat riots in which thousands of Muslims were murdered when Modi was the chief minister.

Five accused were held on Monday for beating the youth – identified as Mukesh Vaniya – to death and assaulting his wife who is now sitting on a dharna seeking justice.

Rahul Gandhi has blamed Modi’s BJP and its parent outfit RSS for the crime.

ये रूह कंपा देने वाला वीडियो मनुवादी सोच का नतीजा है। इससे पहले ये बीमारी हमारे देश में और फैले, हमें इसे रोकना होगा। RSS/BJP की इस दमनकारी सोच को हम सब मिलकर हराएंगे। वक्त है बदलाव का।” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Gujarat government has offered Rs. 8 lakh compensation to the family of the deceased. However, the local Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani said today that the family has decided to return the compensation cheque. “We want justice, not Rs. 8 lakh,” Mevani said.
