Congress President Rahul Gandhi attacks Union minister Jayant Sinha for garlanding lynching convicts. The Congress president has backed an online petition against junior civil aviation minister Sinha. He tweeted, ‘’If the sight of a highly educated MP & Central Minister, Jayant Sinha, garlanding & honouring criminals convicted of lynching an innocent man, fills you with disgust, click on the link & support this petition. Sign Petition:http://chn.ge/2N3MCrA via @ChangeOrg_India”. On July 7, Sinha garlanded eight lynching convicts linked to the murder of cattle trader Alimuddin Ansari in June in Hazaribagh, Jharkhand. Jayant Sinha drew criticism from the media and political parties. Earlier, Yashwant Sinha also condemned his son’s action. He tweeted, “Earlier I was the Nalayak Baap of a Layak Beta. Now the roles are reversed. That is twitter. I do not approve of my son’s action. But I know even this will lead to further abuse. You can never win.” (Muhammed Asad)
