The spokesperson for the Bhartiya Janta Party Sambit Patra has come up in news again because of his grim remarks. Patra has recently stated that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has deliberately been trying to cause unrest in the violence-struck district of the state. This comes in the light of Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri violence, that left 8 protestors dead.
Sambit Patra has alleged that the Gandhi family is using the unfortunate incident as an opportunity to play dirty politics and derive greater political mileage.
He has been quoted as saying that “Congress has been trying everything to provoke people to cause violence”. Upon being asked about the restrictions on political leaders visit the area and the families of victims, the spokesperson for the ruling party justified it by saying that the first priority was maintaining peace and law and order situation.
Taking another dig at Rahul Gandhi, Patra called out that irresponsibility has now become the former’s second name. While urging people to refrain from making careless statements that have the potential to disturb the peace of the citizens, Patra also alleged that the Congress leaders care neither about the farmer nor any other section of the society, they only care about their own fortunes.
