Congress slams BJP MLA for accusing PGV sans evidence | Kanpur News


Varanasi: Congress leader Ajay Rai targeted BJP MLA and Krishnanand Rai’s widow Alka Rai for writing a letter to party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and accusing her of shielding jailed mafia don and BSP MLA Mukhtar Ansari saying she should produce evidence before blaming Congress leadership.
Talking to reporters at his residence on Thursday, the Congress leader said, “How can Alka Rai allege that Priyanka is stopping the Punjab government from sending Mukhtar to UP. She should have given evidence before targeting Congress general secretary.”
Letters should not be written just for doing politics, he added.
Interestingly, Mukhtar is also the prime accused in the murder case of Ajay Rai’s brother Awadhesh Rai in 1991.
“BJP is in power in the state. After completing all legal formalities it should initiate measures like sending a team of expert doctors to examine the health of Mukhtar if they are really serious on bringing him to UP,” he added.
Rai further alleged that musclemen and criminals are enjoying patronage of the government.
The BJP MLA had written an emotional letter to Priyanka on October 27, accusing the Congress government in Punjab of shielding Mukhtar, who is lodged in Ropar jail and was not handed over to a team of UP Police for being produced in a court citing health grounds on the basis of a medical board report.
The Congress leader also accused the Union and state governments for curbing religious and cultural activities in Kashi. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief minister Yogi Adityanath are holding election meetings with huge gatherings in Bihar and UP, but restrictions were imposed on Durga Puja and Ramlila in Kashi.
