Marked increase in criminal activities under BJP rule: Congress

Junaid was stabbed to death while his brothers -- Hashim and Sakir -- were injured by a mob which also allegedly hurled communal slurs against them on board the Delhi-Mathura passenger train between Ballabgarh and Mathura stations.

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.

    We can imagine Congress's role in doing so. After all, INC has proven to be a sore loser. Cong President, Sonia gave a speech that she accepts the defeat after 2014 humiliating loss. But ever since Cong has been only doing anti national activities just to oppose BJP. Sore losers. Wait for 2019. We want to teach you further lesson.

    Biggest criminal activities from Congis, so it is quite natural that over all percentage will increase after Modi comes to power. If you take action it will be called as political vendetta.
