Shimla: Union Minister Anurag Thakur has raised questions about the silence of Congress leader and Wayanad MP, Rahul Gandhi, in the wake of the serial blasts that recently rocked Kerala. Thakur voiced his concerns, saying, “Who are these people who want to create chaos here from outside.”
Speaking to reporters in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh, on a late Sunday evening, Thakur strongly condemned the bomb blast incident in Kerala. He went on to express his unease at Rahul Gandhi’s apparent silence, emphasizing that the Congress leader, who represents Wayanad, seems to be tacitly supporting those responsible for the blasts.
“The silence of Rahul Gandhi, who is an MP (Wayanad) from the state, clearly shows that the Congress is silently supporting them. After all who are this people who want to create chaos here from outside? Congress and communist party are silently supporting them (people behind the blast) and are not taking action against them,” he said.
The blasts occurred during a prayer meeting of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Kalamassery area of Kochi district, around 9:00 a.m. One individual, Dominic Martin, surrendered himself at the Kodakara police station in Thrissur, claiming responsibility for the series of explosions that also left several people injured. The police, however, said that they have yet to verify Martin’s claims.
