Shashi Tharoor slams Modi govt over mob lynching

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on September 22 attended a program on 'Beyond Politics' in Pune. While addressing the event, Tharoor slammed and criticised the Modi government. He said, "What have we seen in last 6 years? It started with the killing of Mohsin Shaikh in Pune. Then, Mohd Akhlaq was killed saying he is carrying beef. But it was reported later that it was not beef. Even if it was beef, who gave anyone right to kill a person?" "Also, Pehlu Khan had license to carry cow in lorry for dairy farming, but he was also lynched to death. One election result gave so much power to such people that they do anything and kill anyone", he added.
