Sonia blames, horrifying violence unleashed on youth with abetment of Modi govt


New Delhi, Jan 06: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday alleged that the "horrifying" violence unleashed on India's youth by goons was with the active abetment of the ruling Modi government and demanded an independent judicial inquiry into the violence in JNU.

In a statement, she accused the Modi government of seeking to stifle and subjugate every voice of dissent and said Sunday's "bone chilling" attack on students and teachers in JNU was a grim reminder of that.

    Gandhi alleged that everyday campuses and colleges are raided across India, either by the police or lumpen elements with support of the BJP government.

    "Yesterday's bone chilling attack on students and teachers in JNU, Delhi is a grim reminder of the extent the Govt will go to stifle and subjugate every voice of dissent," she said.

    The Congress president said students and youth need affordable education, a deserving job, a promising future and a right to participate in the thriving democracy.

    "Sadly, the Modi government seeks to suffocate and restrain each one of these aspirations," she charged.
