NEW DELHI: Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani condemning the alleged attack on JNU student leader Umar Khalid said that the attacker was no other than the people from the BJP and RSS.
On Monday, an unidentified man open fired at Khalid outside the Constitution Club in Delhi.
Condemning the attack, the Dalit leader and Independent MLA from Vadgam told to got death threats and were on the ‘hit list’ and therefore had sought police protection but none of the three had received any kind of security.
“They were making him vulnerable. This is because there has been an attack on Umar Khalid today. I clearly believe that this act has been carried out by the same people who killed Gauri Lankesh, Dabholkar Ji, Pansare, and Kalburgi. No one other than people from BJP and RSS can attack Umar Khalid. I not only condemn this, but our respected Prime Minister should speak about it and provide police protection. Last month, for four days continuously, I have received death threats which also included the names of Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid. Despite this, our police protection has not been improved. This means that our government and BJP and Sangh want people to like us to be killed,” said Mevani in his video message.
