AAP attacks BJP over rising cases of lynching


New Delhi: Taking a dig at the BJP ruled Centre, the ruling AAP raised the issue of growing incidents of lynching in various parts of the country in the Delhi Assembly today and charged the party of failing to protect the minorities and Dalits. Initiating the debate on the second leg of the special session, AAP MLA Alka Lamba said 12 to 15 people were killed in the name of protection of cows and such incidents had taken place in the BJP ruled state. Ms Lamba said, "The BJP government at the Centre is sacrificing lives of people for protection of cows." "Will Prime Minister Narendra Modi give assurance that no such incidents will further take place? Why is this government torturing the Muslims and Dalits?" she questioned. On the rising cases of violence in Kashmir, AAP MLA Somnath Bharti alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been enticing people in the name of religion. "Even after the BJP formed the government, the situation in Kashmir continues to be critical and the ruling government is using the issue of cow protection," she said. Ms Bharti alleged that the Prime Minister maintains "dual character" when it comes to the issue of protection of cows. On the issue, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said, "Our Army personnel are dying at the border and the government is mute on the issue. The people who used to raise "Ghulam Kashmir humara hai" has forgotten about it." Due to the ongoing turmoil, Mansarovar yatra has been affected, he said, adding, "But government is still maintaining silence."
