Home Crime Vivek Tiwari murder: Congress and Left 'activists' give it a political spin

Vivek Tiwari murder: Congress and Left ‘activists’ give it a political spin

Vivek Tiwari and his colleague Sana Khan were heading home in his SUV after an event at a dealer’s office in Vibhutikhand, Gomtinagar in the midnight of 29th September 2018. As he crossed Maqdoompur, two constables Prashant Kumar & Sandeep Kumar, on their bike reportedly chased him & tried to intercept him. As Vivek refused to stop his car, Prashant shot a bullet at him which hit him on his chin after piercing through the windshield of the SUV. Vivek was taken to Lohia hospital where he succumbed to his injury while the doctor was tending to him.

However, Tiwari’s unfortunate death was used as a political platform to settle political scores and win brownie points. Senior Congress Minister Raj Babbar took a dig at Yogi Adityanath and accused him of fostering an ‘Army of goondas’ in khaki uniform in UP.

Raj Babbar has, however, maintained a stoic silence on the deaths of innocent citizens in West Bengal, let alone censuring Mamata Banerjee for the same.

Aisi Taisi Democracy (@AisiTaisiDemo), a comedian group, didn’t take much time to politicize the incident & took a potshot at UP Police by bringing in the caste angle insinuating that the UP police targets Dalits and Muslims while protecting the upper caste Brahmins and Thakurs.

Tweet by @aisitaisidemo, now deleted

However, after realising that Vivek Tiwari was a Brahmin, they deleted the tweet. Earlier, the Left activists have accused Brahmins of being rapists, as if the heinous crime has caste-specific perpetrators.

That is not all. When Vivek Tiwari’s widow, Kalpana, expressed her faith in the Yogi administration and the police, Shehla Rashid, student leader from JNU, trivialized Vivek Tiwari’s murder by attributing his murder to CM Yogi Adityanath. In a twitter conversation with Suvojit, who quoted Indian Express report regarding deceased Vivek Tiwari’s wife’s meeting with Yogi, Shehla mocked the deceased & his family by pinning the entire blame of Vivek’s murder on Yogi Adityanath.

Earlier, Shehla Rashid had insinuated that Union Minister Nitin Gadkari may be plotting to assassinate PM Modi.

Meanwhile, UP CM Yogi Adityanath had met with the deceased’s wife on Monday, 1st October, following which she had expressed her faith in the government. Kalpana Tiwari told news agency ANI, ” He heard what I had to say & assured help. I am in no shape to take any strong stand…I had said that I had faith in the government…today that faith has strengthened”.

It is unfortunate that in this hour of grief for Vivek’s family, Congress politicians & Left-leaning activists are more interested in furthering their political agenda than on sharing her anguish or perhaps reducing it.
