BJP is making Hindustan into ‘Lynchistan’: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday accused the BJP of transforming the country into a land of lynchings and is also trying to “lynch” the Supreme Court’s judgment that highlighted the need for a strict law.

“Today’s shocking incident in Alwar has once again proved that the BJP is working overtime and aggressively to transform Hindustan into Lynchistan. The nation is also witnessing how BJP rather than enforcing Supreme Court’s judgment for a need of a strict law on lynching is actually now lynching the judgment and the Constitution,” Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill told reporters.

The BJP, rather than preventing lynching and punishing the lynching mob, is promoting and patronizing the lynch mob force, he alleged.

“The nation was hoping that the government will wake up after the tight legal slap by the Supreme Court and warning issued that the Government of India must act in a concrete manner to prevent India from becoming a republic of lynchistan,” Shergill said.

But Alwar’s horrific incident has exposed the BJP’s “notorious and dubious intentions to weaken and render the judgment meaningless”, he said, accusing the Rajasthan government and its ministers are behaving like lawyers of lynch mob force.
