Jharkhand: BJP questions Sonia and Rahul's silence over killing of tribal killings

Ranchi, Jan 24 (UNI) National General Secretary of the BJP and Rajya Sabha MP Arun Singh has questioned the silence of Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi over the killing of seven tribals in Burgulikera of West Singhbhum district of the state.
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters here, he said the lawa nad order situation in Jharkhand had collapsed within a few months of the exit of the BJP rule.
He accused JMM, Congress and RJD, the constituents of the Mahagatbandhan government, of indulging in politics of appeasement.
The incidents of Giridih and Lohardaga are the example of the politics of appeasement which is the Congress party's basic trait, he said.
Lambasting the Congress party for its silence over the killings, Singh said that Congress had tweeted battery of allegations after the killing of Tabrez Ansari but was now silent over the incidents of stone pelting, arson and killing of seven tribals.
He said the killings in Chaibasa was a rare incident in which the victims were killed in front of their families while the government was busy running after Delhi Darbar[Congress Headquarters].
Due to Congress' pressure Hemant Soren is not able to expand his cabinet and such tactics are typical of Congress party.
The BJP leader demanded that Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Gulam Nabi Azad should meet the the kin of the victims in Gudri.
Over the party organisation in the state, he said BJP's vote share was higher than Mahagatbandhan which had got 52 lakh votes with the majority seats. But, BJP got 50 lakh votes with just 25 seats.
He said that the party respected the mandate of the people and steps would be taken to make the party more effective.
