‘Manufacturing dissent in non-Congress states’
While the state of Uttar Pradesh is close to Rajasthan in the number of crime cases, strangely the Congress leadership, especially the Gandhi family rolls into gymnastics to manufacture dissent in the neighbouring state.
From Hathras to Lakhimpur, the Congress leadership hopped, skipped, laughed, jumped and toppled to make the most of the two unfortunate cases in UP. Moreover, the Gandhi siblings left no opportunity to click silhouettes with the victims to circulate in media.
They even camped in the state led by the opposition to ‘demand justice’ for the victims while their own state is on fire.
The law and order situation in Rajasthan is precarious. Women and Dalits are being brutalised with impunity. Ashok Gehlot led Congress government is sleeping on wheels.— Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) October 11, 2021

Obsessive lover murdered woman, hugged her dead body
In another horrific incident, a 21-year-old made advances at a victim Shanti Devi who is the mother of two sons while she was at Jojawar Nadi for MGNREGA work.
When the victim shunned his advances, the accused attacked her with an axe and hacked her to pieces till she died. He then hugged her body after hacking her to death.
As per the police, the accused had been harassing and stalking the victim for several months.
Exposing the sad state of affairs, the aforementioned incidents are just a handful from the plethora reported every day.
From cold-blooded murder to gangrape, the law and order situation in Congress leader Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan is worrisome.
In official statistics released by the State police, a 28% increase in atrocities against Dalit women, 20% in burglary and 28% in cases of theft between January and July were reported this year.
Conveniently ignoring the rise in crime rates in Rajasthan, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s social media timeline is flooded with political gimmicks in the poll-bound state of Uttar Pradesh.
