Responding to a spate of killings in Rajasthan, Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill stated that the crime incidents in the state are a cause of concern and the government of Rajasthan is committed, and that no accused will go ‘scot-free’. It’s important to mention that the state has seen a rise in atrocities against Dalits in recent days.
The Rajasthan government is committed to protect the citizens of the state, Shergill said and he also expressed concern towards the increasing number of crimes. “Incidents of crimes happening in Rajasthan are definitely a cause of concern and worry. Rajasthan government is committed to protect every resident of Rajasthan. They are committed to ensure that no accused, no murderer, no attacker goes scot-free. The country should be rest assured that the Rajasthan Congress government unlike the BJP government does not believe in protecting the accused, rapist, the people who commit atrocities on Dalits.”
