BJP leader Kapil Mishra to hand over ₹25 lakh raised through crowdfunding to the family of the immolated temple priest in Rajasthan

Mishra stated that a fundraising campaign was organised by him, in the aftermath of the murder of the temple priest, and a total of ₹25 lakh had been collected from all over the world.

Days, after a temple priest was burned to death in the Bokna village in Sapaotra division of Karauli district in Rajasthan, BJP leader Kapil Mishra informed that he would hand over a sum of ₹25 lakh to the deceased’s family. The priest named Babulal Vaishnav was allegedly set on fire by six men who wanted to grab the land of the temple.

In a Twitter post on Sunday, Mishra stated that a fundraising campaign was organised by him, in the aftermath of the murder of the temple priest. While thanking the benefactors for their generous donation, he stated that a total of ₹25 lakh had been collected from all over the world.

“In the past 2 days, we had run a campaign to help his family financially. We have collected around ₹25 lakh rupees for his family. We will hand it over to the family,” Kapil Mishra was heard as saying. He added, “I want to thank everyone who has sent financial help for his family.”

Kapil Mishra further informed that he was enroute to Karauli district in Rajasthan to express his solidarity with the victim’s family. While drawing inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, Mishra talked about the plight of the temple priest. He emphasised, “His family is the representation of the last man in society, who is often harassed, assaulted and suppressed by the bigwigs. I am happy that we are able to do something for that last man in society on the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Nanaji Deshmukh.”
