Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has described the murder of a temple priest in Karauli district as extremely unfortunate and said that no one will be spared in this case. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar surrounded Rahul Gandhi on this matter. Javadekar said that a priest was burnt alive in Rajasthan. There are incidents of rape all around there. Rahul Gandhi should take cognizance of this and demand resignation from the Gehlot government.
On Friday, Gehlot said through social media that the killing of priest Babulal Vaishnav in Sapotra is highly unfortunate and condemnable, such acts have no place in civilized society. The state government is with the bereaved family in this sad time. He said that the prime accused of the incident has been arrested and action is on. He said that the culprits in this case will not be spared.
State Congress President and Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara said in this case that it was first filed under Section 307 of the Penal Code and after the death of the priest it has been changed to 302 and Kailash Meena, the main accused in the case Has been arrested. He said that the family has been assured full security by the police.
Union Minister Javadekar said that law and order in Rajasthan has completely collapsed. In such a situation, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi should take cognizance of these issues instead of going on political tours. They should either ask the Rajasthan government to resign or try to improve it. They should take action against the culprits.
Earlier, former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje wrote in a tweet that the condemnation of the case of burning the priest of the temple alive to death in Sapotra in Karauli district is as low as the sorrow is less. He wrote that one thing is clear from the speed at which the graph of crime is increasing in Rajasthan, that no women, children, old people, Dalits, businessmen are safe here. The Congress government of the state should now abandon its deep slumber and get the family punished immediately by bringing strict punishment to the culprits.
