BJP slams Rahul, Kejriwal’s silence over Tanzanian’s assault

New Delhi, Feb 4 (IANS) The BJP on Thursday questioned Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s silence over the Tanzanian student’s assault and other incidents of crime against women in non-BJP ruled states.

“It is unfortunate that Rahul Gandhi has been selective to raise his voice on such incidents only in BJP-ruled states,” Bharatiya Janata Party secretary Srikant Sharma told reporters here.

“Will he (Rahul) go to Bengaluru and sit on dharna to protest against the assault of the Tanzanian student. In Muzaffarnagar, a 40-year-old women was gang-raped. A minor was raped in Tripura but Rahul remained silent, why this selective approach?” he asked.

In a case of mistaken identity, a mob assaulted Lina Martin, 21, suspecting her to be a friend of Sudanese student Mohammad Ahad, whose car fatally ran over a woman pedestrian while he driving drunk.

Sharma alleged police were inactive towards the Tanzanian student’s assault and law and order has become a casualty in Congress-ruled Karnataka.

He also took a dig at Kejriwal, and said: “Why is Kejriwal silent? He didn’t even need to travel to Bengaluru from Delhi as he is in Bengaluru itself.”
