Anurag Thakur Criticizes Mamata Banerjee and Nitish Kumar Over Ram Navami Violence


Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Tuesday fiercely denounced West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for indulging in “appeasement politics” during the recent Ram Navami incidents. During an event organized at New Delhi to commemorate the 2622nd birth anniversary of Jain Tirthankar Mahavir on the occasion of World peace and Harmony Day, Thakur emphasized on peaceful procession of Ram Navami and stated this is not the era of war.

Expressing his concern on the violence that had taken place in West Bengal and Bihar during Ram Navami processions last week, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting said such inimical tactics to divide the society by both the Chief Ministers must raise suspicion. He questioned whether such a course of action was taken in order to satisfy the vote bank politics of a particular minority community. The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on the other hand, has been leading the call for a peaceful resolution of the conflict in the world.

Apart from this intriguing remark, Thakur also pointed out that this kind of approach creates many challenges for the country and that the situation needs to be handled through deliberation, discussion and not through resolving to war.
