Some people have a history of setting things ablaze, 1984 riots accused are sitting as CM: Meenakshi Lekhi roars in Lok Sabha

"The Congress talks of 1984 riots, I would like to tell them that they have forgotten that some accused are today on the position of CM," said Lekhi in a veiled attack on Kamal Nath.

On Wednesday, BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi put up an attack in the Lok Sabha against the opposition parties for spreading false propaganda against the BJP during anti-Hindu Delhi riots that engulfed the national capital in February.

New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi began her speech by paying tributes to all those who lost their lives in the Anti-Hindu Delhi riots. “According to me, all the deceased are Indians. I am not sure if any of them were Bangladeshis,” said Lekhi amidst objection from the opposition parties.

Blaming the notorious radical Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) for the Delhi riots, Lekhi said that the anti-Hindu Delhi riots were ‘organised’ violence. She also accused Muslim mobs of throwing acid and petrol bombs at the innocent civilians of the national capital.

Interestingly, in her speech, Meenakshi Lekhi cited the link between controversial foreign-funded Congress-era ‘activist’ Harsh Mander and his links with foreign powers who are allegedly responsible for the stoking anti-Hindu riots in the country.

“People who have links with ISIS are instigating riots in the national capital. An American national named George Soros has promised to defeat Indian nationalism by pledging $1 billion and his organisation. Harsh Mander is a board member of the controversial organisation, who was also the member of UPA-era extra-constitutional body National Advisory Council,” said Lekhi.

Responding to Adhir Ranjan Choudhury’s attack on RSS and its alleged connections with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, Meenakshi Lekhi brought up reference of Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi’s family’s involvement in Mussolini’s army during the Second world war.

“If you are going to allege that Mussolini was Hedgewar’s inspiration then let me remind you, the maternal grandfather of the person sitting behind you worked in Mussolini’s army,” said Lekhi in an attack against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi over their family links with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini’s fascist army during Second World War.

In response to Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s allegations on Home Minister Amit Shah, Meenakshi Lekhi said, “Opposition is defending minority vote bank politics and has forgotten about Sharjeel Imam and AAP MLA Amanatullah.”

Attacking the opposition parties over targetting BJP leaders Anurag Thakur and Parvesh Verma for Delhi violence, Lekhi said, “Anurag Thakur and Parvesh Verma made comments on January 20 and January 28 respectively, while the violence started on February 23. Kapil Mishra was held responsible for acts of Amanatullah Khan, Sharjeel Imam and Tahir Hussain.”

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi also said in the Lok Sabha that Kapil Mishra was blamed for the incidents in Delhi when Congress leaders Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rahul Gandhi and Umar Khalid and Waris Pathan made statements to incite people.

Countering the Congress accusations about the inaction of the police she said, “Some judges think police should not act until protests turn violent”. Under the circumstances, it is difficult to gauge when a peaceful protest will turn violent, she said.

Shooting on the opposition parties for raising the matter of Justice Muralidhar’s transfer, BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said, “Intelligence Bureau reports against some people should be made public, so that people know who has been transferred and why.”

Attacking the Congress party over its past record of stoking communal riots in the past, Lekhi said that some people have a history of setting things ablaze. “I have data which shows who was responsible whenever violence incidents took place in the country,” said Meenakshi Lekhi while listing out the number of riots that had occurred in the country during the Congress rule.

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi attacked the Congress party in Lok Sabha and said that 73 per cent of the riots thave have taken place post-independence has been under Congress or its allies’regime. She added that there have been no riots in Gujarat since 2002 and also said that the top 10 riot incidents in the country have been under Congress.

“The Congress talks of 1984 riots, I would like to tell them that they have forgotten that some accused are today on the position of CM,” said Lekhi in a veiled attack on Kamal Nath. BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said Delhi Violence was brought under control within the first 36 hours. “The Delhi violence was brought under control within 36 hours which, if you look at in hindsight, was in the making for months,” she added.

Responding to Chowdhury’s Nero reference, Lekhi compared Rajiv Gandhi’s “Big Tree falls” comments during anti-Sikh riots.
