Hours after Bihar CM Nitish Kumar reacted to the exodus situation in Gujarat, BJP MLA and cabinet minister in Yogi Adityanath’s government Shrikant Sharma has launched a scathing attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, blaming him for Gujarat exodus.
“Under Rahul Gandhi’s leadership, Congress wants to spread venom in our country. They are not in power that is why they are frustrated. This is why they are spreading lies and threatening people to flee Gujarat. Gujarat government is doing their work. Congress instigated the whole incidence and I condemn this incident. We are getting why are they targeting people now”, said UP MLA Shrikant Sharma.
Furthermore, Shrikant Sharma also blamed the Congress party for using dirty political tactics to come to power in the 2019 general elections.
“They are instigating people in the name of religion and caste. This dirty politics in order to come to power in upcoming elections does not stand a place in the Constitution of India,” he added.
Meanwhile, Republic TV has accessed a video of Alpesh Thakore, wherein he was seen making an instigating speech against the non-Gujaratis.
'These people who have come from outside they commit crime over here (unclear) and then beat our villagers in their own village. And, after committing the crime they go back to their respective places. For them, they have jobs over here in Maruti and other companies but our people don't, they have jobs. And from now 30,000 has increased to 3 lakhs", Alpesh Thakore said in the video.
Earlier on Sunday, Republic TV had accessed another video, wherein Congress member MV Thakore was seen threatening non-Gujaratis members in the state.
The Gujarat Police arrested over 300 people in connection with the attacks on migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh over rape of a toddler on September 28. Gujarat Police chief Shivanand Jha said that 342 people were arrested from six districts in as many as 42 cases of attacks on migrants.
