Country experiencing disturbing trends of violence since past few years: Manmohan Singh

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh attended the 'Rajiv Gandhi National Sadbhavana Award' at Jawahar Bhawan in New Delhi on Monday. Speaking at the event former PM Manmohan Singh said, "Another cause for solemn reflection today is some disturbing trends which our country has been witnessing since the past few years. Those unsavory trends of growing intolerance, communal polarisation, growing incidents of violent crimes compelled by hatred of certain groups and of mobs taking the law in their own hands can only harm the national interest of our country."
