PM should tell country how he will enforce his writ: Chidambaram on PM's warning to 'gau rakshaks'


New Delhi:  Expressing concern over continued incidents of lynching despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi issuing a warning to 'gau rakshaks' (cow vigilantes) and lynch mobs, senior Congress leader and former Home Minister P Chidambaram today said Mr Modi should tell the country how he will enforce his writ. Reacting to the incident of Mohd Alimuddun being lynched by a mob in Jharkhand on a day when the PM warned gau rakshaks, Mr Chidambaram said, 'Obviously, lynch mobs don't fear PM'. 'On a day when PM warned gau rakshaks, Mohd Alimuddun was lynched by a mob in Jharkhand. Obviously, lynch mobs don't fear PM ,' Mr Chidambaram said in a tweet. 'PM warned gau rakshaks and lynch mobs. Good. Let him tell the country how he will enforce his writ ,' Mr Chidambaram said. The remarks by Mr Chidambaram came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday strongly condemned the incidents of lynching that have been reported across India. Delivering a speech to mark the centenary of the Sabarmati ashram in Ahmedabad and 150th birth anniversary of Shrimad Rajchandraji, a guru to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Mr Modi said unleashing violence against others went against the ideals of the Father of the Nation. Speaking in Ahmedabad, during the two-day visit to Gujarat, Mr Modi invoked Gandhi in calling off the alleged cow vigilantes. Mr Modi said, 'Mahatma Gandhi would have shown us what a true gau rakshak is and he would have never approved of cow vigilantism.'
