PM, RSS, BJP practising politics of crushing the weak: Rahul

Faridabad (PTI): Visiting the Dalit family which lost two children yesterday in an attack by upper caste men here, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi accused the Prime Minister, Harayana Chief Minister, the BJP and RSS of practicising “politics of crushing” those who are weak which results in such incidents.


“This is an attitude shared by the Prime Minister, Chief Minister of the state and the entire BJP and RSS. The attidute is if somebody is weak, he can be crushed. What you have seen is the result of this attitude,” Gandhi said.

He was meeting the family of the victims and villagers who had gathered here. Two children died when their house was set afire allegedly by a crowd of upper caste men in the wee hours yesterday.

“In Haryana, there is no government for the poor and poor people are being targeted here which is totally wrong. I have assured the victims’ family that I would do whatever they want from me including pressuring the government.

Asked whether he was doing politics over the incident, Rahul angrily retorted: “This is insulting when someone says it when someone comes here. It is not insulting to me. It is insulting to these people. What is a photo op. What you mean? People are dying. I will keep coming to such places.”
Dalits including children today blocked the Faridabad highway demanding stringent action against the guilty.

Two children of a Dalit family were burnt alive and their parents suffered injuries allegedly after some persons from upper caste set their house afire at Sunped village near Ballabhgarh while they were sleeping.

11 persons, including a father-son duo, have been booked on murder, rioting and other charges, a police spokesman said.

Vaibhav, who was two-and-a-half years old, and his sister, 11-month-old Divya, died after the attackers allegedly poured petrol from the window and set the house ablaze. A religious programme was being held nearby in the village at that time.

Their mother Rekha, 28, suffered serious burns and has been referred to Delhi for treatment, while their father Jitender, 31, too suffered injuries trying to save his family.

After visiting the victims’ family members at Sunped village, Gandhi also met agitating villagers, a majority of them women, who had blocked the Ballabhgarh-Faridabad highway to protest against the incident.

Charging that atrocities against “Dalits and weaker sections” were rising, Congress leader Kumari Selja said that her party “will raise this issue strongly, be it in Parliament and on the streets”.


  1. Crushing of the minorities and converting India from her democratic set up established by the forefathers of the independence movement, to a theocratic autocracy through systematically using the Hindu religion was the hidden agenda of the BJP Government.

    Until now, they have not mentioned the name of the CM Candidate in Bihar, presumably, they don’t need one. This is the real characteristic of the BJP; top secrecy operation undertaken by the very few selected at the top, then yes sign from the PM; far worse than the Kremlin political chess game. However, all indicators are pointing out that the game plan is going in a withering pattern to total disarray.

  2. This is a social issue and should not be used for political purpose. It can be said that this is a sabotage by congress party. These arguments do not help our minorities.

    For Rahul: you are a minority party and need to get stronger.

  3. Prince Raul of ’44-seats’ party and its followers like AS ‘Beef’ Mathews are busy exploiting what seems to be a really sad, heart-wrenching incident. There is absolutely no justification for killing people – I’m glad that the Police have caught all the culprits. One has to remember – the cast based fights and murders are not new to India. While it has come down drastically, it hasn’t entirely stopped as the ‘jaati system’ still plays an important role in our system, mainly fueled by political parties. While ’44-seats’ party is the main culprit behind communal politics in India, many regional parties are responsible for ‘jaati’ based politics. It could be Maayaavati in UP, Laallu yaadava in Bihaara or Devve Gowda in Karnataka.

      And Mohana Bhagawatha, Saaaakshi Maharaja, Amitha Shah, Niraaaanjana Jyothi, Raja Singh, Vidhya Sharan Sharma, some Prachi….some sadhvi.. some swami.. some ‘Balvika’ gombe, …. lol… why do no Chaddi’s names crop up? Selective dementia? 😉

      man… your Indian meshtrugalu have brainwashed you v well! NO wonder you went to a western land to clear your clogged sinuses and anathema. And hello…. it is NOT enema or Asthma. Keep guessing! I REALLY wonder as to why you had to RUN away. 🙂
