Senior Congress chief Kapil Sibal as of late requested Top Minister Narendra Modi how he would have reacted to the violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri by which 8 individuals have been killed.
“Modi ji, why are you silent? We need just one word of sympathy from you. That should not be difficult. Had you been in opposition how would you have reacted? Please tell us,” Mr Sibal tweeted.
