‘They make fuss on lynchings’: Punjab BJP slams ‘silence’ over assault on MLA

Ashwani Kumar Sharma, the Punjab BJP president, said that last Saturday’s assault on party legislator Arun Narang, allegedly by farmers protesting against the three central agricultural laws, ‘amounts to lynching.’

Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Punjab unit president Ashwani Kumar Sharma on Tuesday questioned the silence of “those who make a fuss over mob lynchings,” days after party legislator Arun Narang was beaten up and had his clothes torn off allegedly by farmers protesting against the contentious central agricultural laws.

“What happened with BJP MLA Arun Narang in Malout amounts to lynching. Many people were making a fuss over mob lynching. Why are they silent today? We have met and briefed the Governor about the deteriorating law and order situation in Punjab,” Sharma told news agency ANI.
