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.
