Hitting out at the NDA-led Central government, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Sunday said it failed to perform its primal duty of eliminating fascist forces and that law and order has gone for a toss under its 3-year rule. “The law and order has gone for a toss under the three years of BJP rule at the Centre. There has been a marked increase in the number of rape, murder, loot and lynching incidents,” he told reporters at Faridabad. Surjewala visited the kin of 17-year-old Junaid who was killed by a mob on board a Mathura-bound train recently. He called for justice to the family of Junaid and said strict action should be taken against the culprits so that such a “dastardly act” was never repeated.

Other Congress leaders also accompanied Surjewala.
