The Congress on Saturday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Dadri lynching case, saying that expecting him to condemn the incident was as incredible as expecting the ‘sun rising from the West’, and added that he was ‘ideologically complicit’ in the matter.
“The Prime Minister is ideologically complicit. He wants this polarisation to take place. After all, this is the same polarisation that ensured he became the Gujarat chief minister three times in a row,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari told ANI here.
Training his guns on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Tewari said that whatever was happening in the nation in terms of quelling dissent, was an example of the Centre’s mindset, besides the Prime Minister’s.
“This is part of the Prime Minister’s ideological make up. Whether it is the state trying to intrude into people’s kitchen, bedroom, or telling them what to wear and eat, is an example of his mindset along with the BJP and RSS,” Tewari added.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who went to visit the Dadri victim’s family earlier, was barred by the local administration from entering Bishada village, although it was not clarified why.
