Congress censured its leader for being questioned about the Udaipur affair



In response to the violent killing of a Hindu tailor on Wednesday, the Ashok Gehlot administration in Udaipur has come under fire. Gehlot, who is regarded as being close to the Gandhi family, was criticised by Congress’ own leader. In reality, the group’s head Acharya Pramod Krishnam has come under fire for comments he made in which he questioned the Gehlot administration’s response to Kanhaiyalal’s death.

According to the Congress, his comments are unsupported by facts, and they ought to have given it some thought before crossing the “Lakshman Rekha.” Two men admitted to the savage murder of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur, Rajasthan, stating they were avenging a “insult to Islam” in a confessional video. In a tweet, Krishnam criticised the Gehlot government’s actions, raising the issue of why Kanhaiya was not given security despite threats, and said that the police and administration had equal blame for the murderers’ actions.

He questioned why SSP and DIG had not yet been subject to punishment. Krishnam also questioned whether Rajasthan’s Congress-led Iqbal was truly over. Jairam Ramesh, national general secretary of the Congress, poked fun at Krishnam by tweeting that he ought to have considered it at least once before crossing the “Lakshman Rekha” a second time.
