In a shocking incident, a man who had threatened to chop Prime Minister Narendra Modi into pieces was seen campaigning with Priyanka Vadra in Uttar Pradesh on 11th February. After the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samajwadi Party had dumped the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress party decided to bring in Priyanka Vadra as they knew Rahul Gandhi won’t succeed in reviving the party.
On February 11th, the Congress party held a roadshow in Uttar Pradesh and in the luxury bus that had Priyanka, Rahul, Jyotiraditya Scindia, PL Poonia. And this man named Imran Masood who had threatened to kill PM Modi was present along with them. He had made this statement in a rally in Saharanpur in 2014 where he contested on Congress ticket.
After this man had given the death threat, he was arrested by the police from his residence. What was shocking was that he neither took back his statement nor apologised. He had said “It is all BJP’s plotting. I don’t have any remorse as I did no wrong. I will not apologise either to Narendra Modi or to the BJP”.
Several sections like section 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting religion or religious beliefs), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC, Section 125 (promoting enmity between classes in connection with election) of Representation of People Act, and 310 SC/ST Act was filed against him.
This is not the first time where abusers or criminals have been honored by the Congress party. Earlier we had seen how the Congress leaders had abused not just PM Modi but even his parents. But the Congress party didn’t even take any actions against them.
This is a tip of an iceberg of how the situation will be in India if Congress comes to power in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
