Leader of opposition in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge today accused Hardliner Hindutva of dividing society on caste lines and held them responsible for violence in Maharashtra. Speaking in Lok sabha today the Congress leader asked PM Modi to speak up and labelled him for remaining quiet on such issues.
“PM should come to the House and make a statement. When such incidents are happening, he does nothing,” the Congress politician said.
Raising the issue of Dalit protests in House, Kharge said some fascist forces who wanted to oppress Dalits were behind instigating violence in Maharashtra.
“Fanatic Hindutva is responsible for dividing our society. People from Sangh Parivaar have created unrest in Maharashtra,” Kharge alleged.
He slammed those who tried to interfere in Bhima-Koregaon battle anniversary celebrations.
“Whether it is in Gujarat, Una or Rajasthan, wherever BJP is in power, there is injustice. A Supreme Court judge should be appointed for inquiry in this,” Kharge added.
Kharge accused PM Modi of keeping mum on such issues and asked him to make a statement.
BJP reacted to the remarks made by Kharge and hit back at the grand old party for “employing divide and rule policy”.
