Lucknow: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi made a surprise visit to the family of murdered Lucknow Chief Medical Officer (CMO) B P Singh here on Wednesday.  An eerie silence welcomed the Amethi MP at the Gomti Nagar residence of Singh who was killed on April 2.

Singh’s relatives including his wife received Rahul, once they were informed about the high-profile dignitary standing at their door step.

Rahul was later entertained by CMO’s lawyer brother I P Singh. The Congress scion assured the family that his party is trying to ensure that a CBI inquiry is conducted in the murder case.

The apprehensive family members asked Rahul as to how would he ensure a CBI inquiry into the case when his party is not in power in Uttar Pradesh. In an apparent swipe at the Mayawati government, Rahul said they are making all effort in that regard, and governments don’t matter as they keep changing.

Referring to the deceased CMO’s wife, Rahul said he has come to meet her sister and not Singh’s wife. Rahul also shared his and his PRO’s phone numbers with Singh’s wife, requesting her to be fearless and call her when in need.
