    Singhu Border LIVE: Congress says govt's responsibility to investigate

    The Congress has said it was the government's responsibility to investigate the lynching of a man at a farmers' protest site near the Delhi-Haryana border, while the BJP asserted that in the name of farmers, the "anarchists" behind these protests, need to be exposed.

    Asked about the incident, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said, "We saw it on social media, don't know the details yet. There is no place at all whatsoever for violence anywhere in the country."

    "This country is and must be governed by the rule of law. It is the government's responsibility to get deep into this, investigate and let the law take its course," he said.

    Another Congress leader Salman Anees Soz said the "gruesome murder" at the Singhu border, between Delhi-Haryana, is shocking and condemnable.

    "Hope the perpetrators are quickly brought to justice. But there will now be an attempt to paint all protesters as killers. Just watch how low government supporters will go," he said in a tweet.

    Singhu Border LIVE: Farmers' protest taken over by criminals, says Dushyant Gautam

    Punjab BJP in-charge and national general secretary Dushyant Kumar Gautam has alleged that farmers' protest has been taken over by some criminals and said increasing crime incidents at their protest sites show they are functioning like Taliban.

    "The farmers' protest has been taken over by some criminals. In the past, a woman was raped and murdered. With the number of increasing crime incidents at the farmers' protest site, it seems they are functioning like Taliban and spreading extremism in the country," Gautam said.

    He also questioned the Congress party's silence on the issue. He said, "The Congress party was on its toes when the Lakhimpur Kheri violence occurred because there is BJP government in Uttar Pradesh. While in Rajasthan, several Dalits were attacked but Congress party is silent on that issue."
