In keeping with his latest reactionary avatar, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday trained his guns on the Uttar Pradesh administration over the recent murder of a journalist in Ghaziabad.
Tweeting in Hindi, Rahul said he offered his condolences to the family of Vikram Joshi, the scribe who was shot in front of his daughters on Tuesday after he protested against goons who were troubling them.
Joshi later succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday.
“They had promised Ram Raj, but instead gave Gunda Raj,” he went on.
अपनी भांजी के साथ छेड़छाड़ का विरोध करने पर पत्रकार विक्रम जोशी की हत्या कर दी गयी। शोकग्रस्त परिवार को मेरी सांत्वना।— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) July 22, 2020
वादा था राम राज का, दे दिया गुंडाराज।
Gandhi, of late, has been hyperactive on social media, taking on the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-led government, and on Prime Minister Modi in particular, over their ‘mishandling’ of the China border crisis, the coronavirus pandemic and the recent Vikas Dubey encounter.
After virtually interviewing a slew of experts and economists during the lockdown, Gandhi started his own video series, quite on the lines of Modi’s monthly radio show, ‘Mann ki Baat’.
His sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, smarting from her recent Lutyens’ bungalow eviction notice, was also quick to respond.
गाजियाबाद NCR में है। यहां कानून व्यवस्था का ये आलम है तो आप पूरे यूपी में कानून व्यवस्था के हाल का अंदाजा लगा लीजिए।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) July 21, 2020
एक पत्रकार को इसलिए गोली मार दी गई क्योंकि उन्होंने भांजी के साथ छेड़छाड़ की तहरीर पुलिस में दी थी।
इस जंगलराज में कोई भी आमजन खुद को कैसे सुरक्षित महसूस करेगा?
The party’s national spokesperson, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, also chimed in.
Shocking jungle raaj in #Ghaziabad area with journalist #Joshi, already known as complainant in #FIR, being shot on scooter while with his daughters, struggling in coma with bullet in skull! Thank God daughters not hit. Shocking, scary, disgusting lack of fear of law & order! #UP— Abhishek Singhvi (@DrAMSinghvi) July 22, 2020
