Politicians React to Nafe Singh Rathee’s Death

AAP leader Sushil Gupta slammed the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government in Haryana over the fatal attack on Nafe Singh Rathee.

“Haryana INLD president Nafe Singh and his associates have been shot dead. No one feels safe here (in Haryana) anymore. Businessmen are shot and then extorted, politicians are being shot dead on roads, bullets are fired at farmers. Will the rule of law prevail in this state, or will the Chief Minister continue to remain occupied with election rallies?” said Sushil Gupta.

On the other hand, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij assured “immediate action” in the matter and said, “I have asked the officials to take immediate action in this matter. STF has also swung into action…The incident is being investigated.”
