Cong's Abhishek Singhvi attacks Nitish Govt over Munger firing; says, 'Reminds of General Dyer'

Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has launched a scathing attack against incumbent Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over Munger firing.

In a tweet, he said, 'Distraught at seeing pictures. Such an attack on the devotees of the mother? See the devotion of the devotees, despite the police baton, leaving the mother not leaving. The deceased youth got Vaikuntha. Nitish Sarkar has reminded the days of General Dyer today.'

He targetted the Nitish Kumar government and said that the violence ahead of the elections on the devotees who were heading for the idol immersion was uncalled for and has even said that this reminded him of the Jalianwala Bagh incident.
