Congress condemns Centre over gau rakshak mobs, says 'law and order has gone for a toss under BJP rule'

Faridabad: It is the primal duty of an elected government to eliminate fascist forces for the progress of a society, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said on Saturday.

"The law and order has gone for a toss under the three years of BJP rule at the Centre. There has been a marked increase in the number of rape, murder, loot and lynching incidents," he told reporters here.

Surjewala visited the kin of 17-year-old Junaid who was killed by a mob on board a Mathura-bound train recently.

He called for justice to the family of Junaid and said strict action should be taken against the culprits so that such a "dastardly act" was never repeated.

Other Congress leaders also accompanied Surjewala.

Junaid was stabbed to death while his brothers — Hashim and Sakir — were injured by a mob which also allegedly hurled communal slurs against them on board the Delhi-Mathura passenger train between Ballabgarh and Mathura stations.
