Gujarat: After Alpesh Thakor, another Congress MLA caught on video spreading violence

As reported earlier, several districts of Gujarat had been facing widespread violence against non‑Gujaratis, mostly against people from Bihar and UP. The violence followed rape of a minor girl in a Thakor dominant village, after which a labourer from Bihar was arrested by police accusing him of the crime.

It was also reported how members of the Kshatriya Thakor Sena, led by Congress MLA, Alpesh Thakor, instigated revenge violence against people from Bihar and UP working in the state. Video’s surfaced where Congress MLA, Alpesh Thakor, himself is giving a hate speech against non-Gujaratis and instigating the mob to take to violence.

Now, while Alpesh Thakor is busy cleansing his image by sitting on a ‘Sadbhavna Upvas’, to establish “peace and harmony”, another video surfaced which shows yet another Congress MLA from Vav constituency in Banaskantha and incidentally a close aide of Alpesh Thakor, Geniben Thakor, instigating violence in Gujarat. A video of Geniben Thakor purportedly saying that a rape accused should be burnt alive instead of being handed over to police went viral on Thursday.

“The Indian laws should be followed but at the time of the incident … 500, 100, 50 or 150 people are there… they should have used petrol and set them (rapists) on fire, nothing would have happened. They (rapists) should not have been handed over to police and should have been finished instead,” Geniben is heard saying in the video. At the end of the video, some of the other women are also heard saying that the rapists should have been killed.

Geniben, however, later came up with a clarification saying that she had given such statement to pacify the women who had come to meet her.

At a time when migrants are being forced to leave the states because of the violence instigated by Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor, these statements would perhaps only to add fuel to fire.

This is, however, not the first time, the Congress MLA has made violent statements. Recently, while addressing farmers’ gathering in June 2018, she said that she is pained by the plight of the farmers and if it were up to her, she would kill them (BJP leaders) and go to jail if it were to come to that.

With members of the Congress party, one after the other, seen instigating violence in Gujarat, and moreover with the video’s as prove to surface, it is only appalling to see their party supremo, Rahul Gandhi brazening it out by blaming ‘unemployment’ for the violence. While, on one hand, Congress defends Alpesh Thakor for his act, Rahul goes on record and uses the spate of violence to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
