BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma also made a reference to communal violence in Purnia in Bihar and dared Congress to speak up on these issues, alleging that the main opposition party earlier tried to malign the image of NDA government at Centre on the issue of so-called intolerance.
Hitting out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Sharma said he was at the forefront of attacking the Modi government over state issues like Dadri lynching and the murder of rationalist M M Kalaburgi in Karnataka but has kept a silence over the violence in Malda and frequent murders in Bihar.
"The silence of the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi is shameful. The silence of all those who were attacking the Central government over the issues like Dadri lynching and Kalaburgi murder is equally shameful. We will appreciate if they have guts to comment on what happened in Malda and Fatehpur and also daily murders in Bihar where 'jungle raj' has returned", Sharma said.
