Senior Congress leader and former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram today took a pot shot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that his warning to lynch mobs went unattended.

Taking to Twitter, Chidambaram said, “On a day when PM warned gau rakshaks, Mohd Alimuddin was lynched by a mob in Jharkhand. Obviously, lynch mobs don’t fear PM.”

Chidambaram’s remark follows Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement that killing of people in the name of cow protection was not acceptable.
Commenting on Narendra Modi’s remarks, Chidambaram said, “PM warned gau rakshaks and lynch mobs. Good. Let him tell the country how he will enforce his writ.”

WHAT MODI HAD SAID

“Killing people in the name of ‘gau bhakti’ is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve,” Modi said, adding, “No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands.”

The Prime Minister’s remarks come against the backdrop of a spurt in incidents of cow vigilantism and a spate of lynching. A teenager was last week killed on board a Mathura-bound train by people who attacked four brothers and repeatedly called them “anti-nationals” and “beef eaters”.

“Violence never has and never will solve any problem. As a society, there is no place for violence,” Modi said.

ALIMUDDIN CASE

On a day Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned that killings in the name of cow protection won’t be tolerated, a man was beaten to death by a mob at Ramgarh near Ranchi in Jharkhand yesterday on suspicion that he was carrying beef in his vehicle.

A case has been registered on the basis of a video footage of the lynching, police said.

Reports suggest that there could be some previous disputes between the assailants and the deceased. Reports also say that the deceased, identified as Mohammad Alimuddin, was accused of rape and murder of an 8-year-old girl.

According to police, around 30 people surrounded the van bearing a West Bengal number plate in the Bazaar Tand area of Ramgarh police station. They dragged out the driver of the vehicle, Mohammad Allimuddin, a resident of neighbouring Hazaribagh district, and thrashed him, injuring him seriously.

Police rushed to the spot and took Allimuddin to a hospital where he was declared “brought dead” by doctors. The mob also set the vehicle on fire, police said.

“PM Needs To Understand…”: Rahul Gandhi On Recession

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi today took a swipe at the government over reports that the economy has gone into a recession and crores have been left unemployed. He pointed to the basic job scheme MGNREGA, which was launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, as having made to remain idle with “three crore people still looking for work”.

“Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever. More importantly, 3 crore people are still looking for work under MNREGA. Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea,” Mr Gandhi tweeted, in what was seen as an allusion to PM Modi’s often overnight announcements that result in sweeping policy changes immediately.

Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea.

— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) November 27, 2020
From sudden demonetisation in November 2016 to the announcement of the lockdown in late March necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, which led to hardships, opposition leaders have been attacking PM Modi over decisions that they say were taken without considering their impact on a vast number of the population.

The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) also shrank for the second straight quarter through September, although it showed signs of a pick-up after the easing of pandemic restrictions that triggered a record contraction in the previous quarter.

The GDP in July-September quarter contracted 7.5 per cent on year, data released by the National Statistical Office today showed, compared to a decline of 23.9 per cent in the previous three months.

Annual growth of 3.4 per cent in farm sector and 0.6 per cent in manufacturing during September quarter raised hopes of an early recovery as the government gears up to distribute COVID-19 vaccine whenever it becomes available.

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

India is not alone in suffering from economic troubles because of the pandemic. Several other nations have seen their economy shrink as manufacturing slows down.
