Hyderabad: CPI National General Secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy on Wednesday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict asking government to enact a law to punish those resort to lynching. In a statement here, he hailed the apex court’s judgment on July 17 directing the Centre to come up with a special law to deter the shameful phenomenon of mob violence, vigilantism and lynching. Such criminal inhuman acts have erupted frequently after Modi came to power and flagrantly across States ruled by parties of all hues, he said.
He recalled that a similar directive by the apex court over killings by cow vigilantes fell on the deaf years of Modi regime. “Perhaps the irresponsible silence of Modi government over the killings of innocents and inaction over court directives, the apex court this time also suggested detailed measures and give fool proof guidelines for prevention, redressal and punishment of the crime of mob violence,” he said.
He further added that as the election year was nearing, one need not expect any meaningful attempts by the Modi government to control ‘mobocracy’ which has been unleashed by RSS and its outfits to polarise the voters. “However, we urge the government to implement the directive of the Supreme Court in letter and spirit without any fail,” he said, calling upon people to be vigilant and to keep in mind the heinous crimes done at the behest of BJP, and elect a new Lok Sabha in 2019 as well as in the ensuing Assembly elections.
