BJP-ruled states descending into chaos: Rahul

 Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the deteriorating law and order situation in BJP-ruled states.
 
“From Rajasthan to UP, Haryana & now Jharkhand, BJP-ruled states are descending into chaos & lawlessness.Will the PM answer?” Rahul said on Twitter tagging reports of lynching of a man in Jharkhand.
 
The Congress recalled the killings of Mohammad Akhlaq in Dadri, Pehlu Khan in Rajasthan, the gang rape and murder of a young woman in Haryana, the flogging of Dalits in Una in Gujarat and assault on a nomadic family in Jammu as instances of intolerance of the majority under the Modi government.
 
“This practice is licence to kill, which would even make James Bond blush,” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi told reporters here.
 
Since the Modi government came to power in 2014, atrocities against Dalits have increased by 38%, Singhvi said quoting the National Crime Records Bureau data.
 
“In 2013, there were 39,408 cases of atrocities against the Dalits, this had increased to 54,355 in 2015,” he said adding that BJP-ruled Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh were among the top four states as far as crimes against Dalits were concerned.
