Lalu slams PM Modi for Alwar lynching, asks to pay attention on India
New Delhi : Post terror attack in Stockholm, many world leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, condemned the attack. Taking the social media, PM Modi said their thoughts and prayers are with the families that had lost a loved one in the terrorist strike.
But RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav had a whole different reason for slamming PM Modi's tweet in which he expressed his condolences for the Stockholm victims. The former Bihar chief minister believes that victims of violence in India too are deserving of the PM's attention.
His tweet was referring to the lynching on Thursday of 55-year-old Pehlu Khan, a man from Alwar in Rajasthan, who was killed allegedly by cow vigilantes.
Khan, a dairy farmer, was returning from a cattle market, from where he had purchased a milch cow. Dozens of alleged 'gau rakshaks' are said to have stopped his cattle truck and beaten him so brutally that succumbed to his injuries.
Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, is also silent about the lynching.
