BJP-RSS Responsible for Five Precious Lives Lost in Delhi: CPI
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on February 25, 2020, expressing its deep concern over the loss of five lives in the national capital and blamed the BJP-RSS combine for the unpardonable incident:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses its deep sorrow and concern over the loss of five lives — those of four protesters and a police head constable — in the National Capital on February 24, 2020. Anti-CAA protesters were holding peaceful protests in the Jaffrabad, Maujpur and Bhajanpura areas of north-east Delhi.
RSS-BJP goons who wanted to scuttle the protest movement let loose violence and even tried to give it a communal colour by attacking the protesters and the minority community people in the areas. All these were happening when US President Donald Trump was then scheduled to land in Delhi.
It is an undisputable fact the RSS-BJP leaders including ministers, MPs and even chief ministers were responsible for the tense situation in the Capital and elsewhere in the country with heinous and provocative speeches. The anti-minority campaign which started on the eve of Delhi polls is still continuing. Therefore the Party hold those RSS-BJP leaders solely responsible for the loss of lives following the abatement of hatred, intolerance and violence.
The Party demands an impartial judicial probe into the episode and exemplary punishment for all those found guilty directly and indirectly.
