Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who today met the family members of the Dalit victims in Sunped village, Ballabhgarh (Faridabad), alleged that the increasing hate crime incidents were a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attitude.

Gandhi also lashed out at Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for ignoring the plight of the people of the state.

“The poor people are being harassed here. When they went to the administration, they were told that nobody has died yet and they should go away. Strict action must be taken against the erring police officials,” Rahul Gandhi said.

“I will help them in any way I can. They just have to speak about it,” he added.

Rahul Gandhi later lost his cool when asked whether this was a photo opportunity. “What do you mean by photo-op? Whenever people die, I will come again and again,” he told the media.

Two children of a Dalit family died and their parents suffered burn injuries after their home was set on fire, allegedly by upper-caste Rajputs in Sunpedh village yesterday.

According to the police, this attack was an act of vengeance that stemmed from a year-long feud between the two communities.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has sought a report from Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the incident.

The incident in Sunped village took place on a day when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley spoke out firmly against the acts of vandalism in the country. He said all right-thinking sections disapproved of this extremely disturbing trend.

        We pity the unduly glorified and pampered top-leadership of Congress for their utter inept inefficiency as well as their brainless and spineless followers unable to revolt towards a change
