We wonder if it is the company and guidance of Digvijay Singh that Rahul Gandhi is also persistently issuing ridiculous and illogical statements.
A string of explosions that took place at Patna railway station and Gandhi Maidan on Sunday shortly before Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressing a rally claimed six lives and left over 80 injured. Seven crude bombs exploded in Patna ahead of a massive rally by Modi.
However, Modi later delivered an hour-long speech after the blasts on Sunday.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today confirmed the involvement of Islamist militant group Indian Mujahideen (IM) in the serial blasts.
Till yesterday, the death toll was five but it rose to six with the second suspect succumbing to his injuries on Monday. According to media reports, one of those detained in connection with the blasts have claimed that the motive of the serial blasts was to avenge the Muzaffarnagar riots.
Reportedly, the Bihar Police has said that they suspect more improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are planted at Gandhi Maidan and the searches are on at the spot till today.
In his latest nonsensical and inane statement, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said on a national news channel that if any party was to benefit from the Patna blasts, it was the BJP.
The attack on Sunday came only four months after the Bodhgaya blasts, which were also carried out by the IM and instead of focusing on security lapse, such lunatic and ‘senior political leaders’ are more interested in debating about which political party has benefited from the blasts, which killed and injured several innocent citizens.
We wonder if it is the company and guidance of Digvijay Singh that Rahul Gandhi is also moving on the same lines and persistently issuing ridiculous and illogical statements.
I would suggest Congress to pitch in some mature and sensible leaders, who have the understanding that politics is not a child’s play and have the sentiments that connect with the people and their problems.
