Hyderabad: MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday alleged that those behind the attack on three people in Madhya Pradesh over beef rumours were voters of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He claimed that mob lynching in the name of cow vigilantism would continue.
Speaking a day after Mr Modi’s told the NDA MPs that their mantra should be “Sabka saath, sabka vikas and sabka vishwas,” Mr Owaisi said tweeted, “In 5 years, the only thing he managed to add is two words to his slogan. Vishwas is only possible when you start living up to your Oath and believe the Constitution. Otherwise this vishwas talk is just lip service,” he said.
“I think ever since the BJP came to power, the mob lynching gang has become a 'Bhasmasur' and one day they will sink along with the BJP and this is definitely going to happen.The Madhya Pradesh incident, of which a video is out... they (attackers) all voted for Modi... they all are 100 per cent Modi voters. See the photos on their social media page.... They are openly telling that they are BJP and Modi voters,” he said. Suspected cow vigilantes had thrashed three persons in Madhya Pradesh’s Seoni district for allegedly carrying beef, following which the assailants as well as the victims of the attack were arrested.
Police said the three persons, who were beaten up, were arrested on May 22 as possession, transportation or sale of beef is illegal in Madhya Pradesh.
Mr Owaisi reiterated that after the Lok Sabha results were declared, mob lynching in the name of cow vigilantism was going to continue, because these outfits felt that they have won and none could stop them.
On Mr Modi’s speech in the Central Hall of the Parliament on Saturday, Owaisi sought to know how many contradictory things the Prime Minister would say. “It is open contradiction. If he (Modi) thinks by talking in such a way he is giving some message... no he is not giving any message... he is exposed.. Talks one thing and does another. This is not something new..,” Mr Owaisi said.
In an impassioned 75-minute speech in Parliament's Central Hall that Modi began after bowing to the Constitution, he struck a note of inclusion, asking the MPs to take along everyone, including those who have not voted for the ruling alliance and have been its trenchant critics....
