Rajasthan Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra on Saturday shared Twitter a purported videoclip of BJP’s former MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja, who is allegedly seen admitting his supporters have so far “lynched five people”.
Mr. Ahuja is seen making the while interrupting a speaker, who was urging a group of people to launch an agitation against the lynching of 45-year-old Chiranjilal Saini. Mr. Saini was allegedly lynched by member of the Mev Muslim community on Sunday morning in Govindgarh town suspicious of tractor theft. He died during treatment at Jaipur’s state-run SMS Hospital on Monday.
BJP’s Alwar (south) chief Sanjay Singh Naruka told PTI that the party “does not have this thinking”. “These are his own views,” he added.
When contacted, the former Ramgarh MLA maintain his remark, saying anyone involved in cow smuggling and slaughter won’t be spared.
Sharing the video, Mr. Dotasra said it has exposed the BJP’s true face. “What more proof is needed of the BJP’s religious terror and bigotry? The real face of the BJP ahs been exposed,” he said.
Mr. Ahuja said he was sitting with a local RSS leader who suggested that an agitation should be launched to protest the lynching of Chiranjilal Saini. In the video, the former MLA interrupted him, “We have so far lynched five people, be it in Lawandi or Behror. This has happned for first time in this area that they have lynched someone.”
