Sudip Bandyopadhyay speaks on mob lynching


Madam, I want to draw your attention to the issue of mob lynching. It is creating an alarming situation in different parts of the country. All sensible people are in a mood to condemn these incidents. It is a heinous crime, inhuman brutal crime. Few ugly motivated people are taking advantage of it and trying to create disturbance in the country.

We demand exemplary punishment for those who are creating mischief and creating a very uncertain situation. Parliamentary democratic system is under threat. Government should not keep mum and must not allow such things to happen. We are for united India. We are for ‘stop lynching’.

We want that Government of India should always give directions to the States. Because, as the Home Minister has always said, it is a State subject. It is a State subject; still, the government should take initiative. I would request hon Home Minister to take action regarding these incidents of lynching. We all wholeheartedly condemn such incidents.
