Rahul Gandhi caught lying about the violence in Gujarat directed towards non-Gujaratis

We have reported earlier on the violence that has erupted in Gujarat against non-Gujaratis following the rape of a 14-month old infant. Many migrants were reported to have fled the state in wake of the targeted violence against them. Gujarat Minister Pradeepsinh Jadeja was forced to appeal to those who have left to come back asserting that the situation had been brought under control.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, while speaking at poll-bound Rajasthan, spoke on the matter and used the spate of violence to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It is quite hypocritical of Rahul Gandhi to attack Narendra Modi over the matter as the violence was reportedly perpetrated by those associated with the Congress party. The Police in Gujarat had confirmed that Congress leaders had instigated violence against non-Gujaratis in the state.

Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor was himself seen in videos instigating mobs to commit acts of violence. Furthermore, members of Alpesh Thakor led Thakor Sena were arrested by the Police in connection with the violence that ensued. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Congress MLA has announced that he will sit on an indefinite fast from the 11th of October demanding the withdrawal of charges against the riot accused and the immediate release of those arrested by the Police.

Under such circumstances, it is extremely dishonest of Rahul Gandhi to attack Prime Minister Modi over an incident where Congress leaders are known to have been involved. A Congress MLA is even batting for the riot accused. But given Rahul Gandhi’s track record, it is hardly surprising that he would choose to attack Modi for an incident allegedly perpetrated by those associated with the Congress party.
