Jharkhand lynching saddening but don't insult entire state: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that the lynching of a Muslim youth in Jharkhand has "pained" him but expressed reservation on opposition calling the state a 'hub of lynching' as he said no body has the right "insult" Jharkhand. "The lynching in Jharkhand has pained me. It has saddened others too. But, some here in the Rajya Sabha are calling Jharkhand a hub of lynching. Is this fair? Why are they insulting a whole state? None of us have the right to insult the state of Jharkhand." PM Modi said in Rajya Sabha where he replied to the 'Motion of Thanks on the President's Address'.
