New Delhi, March 9: Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for maintaining silence over the recent hate attacks on Indians in the United States, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge in Lok Sabha asked PM to make a statement on the issue in Parliament.

The leader of opposition Kharge said such hate attack incidents have increased after President Donald Trump took charge and government should take a serious note on this.

While addressing the second leg of the Budget Session in Lok Sabha Kharge said,“Such incidents have increased after the new U.S. President has taken charge. The Prime Minister tweets on every other issue. Why doesn’t he talk on this issue? Why is he silent? He should make a statement today.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the government has taken up the matter very seriously and a detailed statement on behalf of the Government of India would be given in the Parliament next week.

We will take steps to ensure that Indians in USA feel secure there. The government will make a detailed statement soon,” said Singh.

AIADMK leader M. Thambidurai also raised questioned on the matter and said it is high time that India should intervene and protect its citizens. He said the government should ensure that such incidents do not repeat.

On February 22, an Indian engineer, Srinivas Kuchibhotla was killed and another Indian Alok Madasani was injured in a shooting by navy veteran Adam Purinton, who yelled ‘terrorist’ and ‘get out of my country’ before opening fire on them in Kansas.
