‘Rajiv Gandhi dad of lynching’: BJP retorts to Rahul Gandhi’s attack on Modi govt
NEW DELHI: The BJP has reacted sharply to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that lynching has become common after the Narendra Modi government pertained to power at the Centre in 2014. In a personal attack, the ruling celebration accused previous Prime Minister and Rahul’s dad late Rajiv Gandhi as the “daddy of lynching”.
On Tuesday morning, Rahul posted a tweet in Hindi and English which stated: “Before 2014, the word ‘lynching’ was almost unusual.”
2014 से पहले’लिंचिंग’शब्द सुनने में भी नहीं आता था । Prior to 2014, the word ‘lynching’ was virtually unheard of. #ThankYouModiJi

Though he did not mention, Rahul’s post was most likely in recommendation to the 2 lynchings which occurred in the last two days in Congress-ruled Punjab following allegations of desecration – one at the sanctum sanctorum of the Golden Temple and the other at a town gurdwara in Kapurthala district.
The BJP took exception to the previous Congress president’s post which put the blame for lynching on the Modi dispensation rather of holding his celebration’s Punjab federal government under chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi accountable for the two occurrences of lynching.
In two tweets, BJP leader co-in-charge of West Bengal Amit Malviya made a stinging individual attack on Rahul and the Congress.
His very first tweet was intended at Rajiv Gandhi. He said, “Meet Rajiv Gandhi, daddy of mob lynching, validating blood curdling genocide of Sikhs. Congress required to streets, raised mottos like ‘khoon ka badla khoon se lenge’, raped women, covered burning tyres around necks of Sikh males while pet dogs made a pig of on charred bodies disposed in drains pipes.”

in which Rajiv is heard saying that” the earth shakes if a huge tree falls “. His comment remained in the wake of his mom and the then PM late Indira Gandhi’s assassination on October 31, 1984 which triggered nationwide riots and massacres of Sikhs, particularly in Delhi. Malviya’s second tweet discussed the different riots and killings which have happened in the past in states which were ruled by the Congress. Declaring the role of”Nehru-Gandhi parivar
“(household )for all these riots, Malviya stated in his second tweet: “Ahmedabad (1969), Jalgaon (1970 ), Moradabad( 1980), Nellie (1983 ), Bhiwandi (1984 ), Delhi (1984 ), Ahmedabad (1985 ), Bhagalpur (1989 ), Hyderabad(1990), Kanpur (1992 ), Mumbai (1993 )… This is just a small list in which more than 100 individuals died under Nehru-Gandhi parivar’s watch.”< div class ="cdatainfo id-r-component"data-pos="
