Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has finally voiced her opinion regarding the shooting of Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf on live media in Uttar Pradesh.
Priyanka Gandhi’s Strong Reactions to The Killings
The Congress leader expressed her displeasure stating that the rule of law is of paramount importance in a democracy like India. In a tweet, she said, "Criminals should be given the harshest punishment, but it should be according to the law of the land. Playing with or violating the rule of law and the judicial process for any political purpose is not right for our democracy.”
Though Priyanka Gandhi refrained from taking any names she couldn’t stress enough that the law of the country, written in the Constitution, should be followed at all costs. The Congress general secretary said, "Whoever does this, or gives protection to those who indulge in such an act, should also be held responsible and the law should be strictly enforced on that person". It should be the endeavor of all of us that the justice system and the rule of law should be supreme in the country, Priyanka Gandhi added.
CPI(M) Reacts to The Incident
Gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf were killed while they were being escorted to a hospital in Prayagraj by the police. To the horror of those who were a witness to the gruesome murder, three men, who posed as journalists n the middle of a media interaction shot the brothers dead at point-blank range on Saturday night. The rashness shown by the perpetrators has left the entire nation in shock. CPI(M) reacted to the murders of the two brothers stating that how Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf were murdered in the presence of a heavy police escort points towards official connivance. “This must be seen in the background of the repeated spate of encounter killings which are nothing but extra judicial murders”, CPI(M) stated. They also alleged that Uttar Pradesh has turned into a “lawless state”.
