New Delhi(PTI): Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday backed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion that the Centre has had no role in the Dadri lynching incident or even the cancellation of proposed musical programme of Pakistani Ghazal singer Ghulam Ali.
“The law and order is a state subject. When we feel that an incident is serious, we seek a report from the state government and accordingly issue an advisory. But, to indict the Centre for incidents taking place in a state is wrong, Prime Minister Modi has said the correct thing,”said Rijiju. Prime Minister Modi has said that he or his party BJP does not support incidents like the lynching of Mohd. Akhlaq at Dadri in Uttar Pradesh on beef rumours or even the cancellation of proposed musical programme of Ghulam Ali.
In an interview to a Kolkata-based daily newspaper, he said his party or the Centre has had no role in the two unfortunate incidents. Prime Minister Modi blamed the opposition for trying to use these sad incidents and indulging in politics of polarisation.
