Maoists planning assassination of Modi? Letters hint at a ‘Rajiv Gandhi type incident’ being planned

In a shocking revelation, as per reports, a letter unearthed by Pune Police suggests plans to assassinate Prime Minister Modi in a “Rajiv Gandhi type incident” by “targeting road shows”.  The police has sought custody for the five people arrested and booked them under provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Without naming Modi, public prosecutor Ujjwala Pawar told the court that the email talked about “another Rajiv Gandhi type incident”. Pawar also submitted a letter which the police claims to have recovered from the laptops of those arrested.

The letter further mentions an alleged nexus between Maoists, the Congress, Gujarat Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani, who is accused of inciting mob to take to violence during Bhima-Koregaon rally, JNU ‘student’ leader Umar Khalid, who has been indicted for sedition, and Dalit leader Prakash Ambedkar, who issues open threats to journalists, claiming that Maoist funding was behind the Bhima-Koregaon riots that took place earlier this year.

Police arrested Delhi based activist Rona Wilson, advocate Surendra Gadling, professor Shoma Sen and Mahesh Raut from Nagpur and Mumbai’s Sudhir Dhavle in connection with ‘Elgar Parishad’ held in Pune in December and the subsequent Bhima-Koregaon riots in the district. According to Police, a letter found in Wilson’s house talks about requirement of Rs 8 crore to procure M-4 rifle and four lakh rounds other than the ‘incident’. Quoting the letter, Pawar quoted the letter which said, ‘We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi incident. It sounds suicidal and there is a chance that we might fail but party must deliberate on our proposal.’

Quoting another letter allegedly seized from Wilson’s house, she said, ‘The higher Committee has appreciated the endearing efforts of all urban comrades for the specific tasks given to them… There is a lot of ground to be covered. Comrade Mangalu and Deepu have been coordinating the Koregaon programme (for) last two months with Comrade Sudhir. They have been able to gather support from the larger sections of Dalits across the state,’ suggesting the riots could have been scripted. A letter seized allegedly also lauds Rona Wilson for the success of Elgar Parishad and called for Dalit agitations to be organised in other BJP-ruled states to dent the party’s prospects in the 2019 elections.

Earlier, too, many journalists and others had wished to see Prime Minister Modi dead. We have earlier seen how an NDTV journalist was ‘excited’ when Narendra Modi had caught swine flu, how a Times Now journalist waited for Modi to be assassinated, and how another columnist with The Quint wanted Modi to be shot dead. A columnist at Editors Guild of India President Shekhar Gupta’s website has also wished for Modi’s assassination. Minute-made celebrity Gurmehar Kaur’s mentor, too, has rooted for PM’s assassination.
