Happens all over the world: CM Raje on lynchings in Rajasthan

Blames the lynchings on lack of jobs and people's anger growing out of that

Jaipur: Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje said lynching was not unique to her state and that she would have to be “rather much than god” to know about every incident happening in every remote corner of the state.

The comment comes in the wake of lynching of Rakbar Khan, a dairy farmer from Haryana’s Mewat district, who was lynched by a group of seven persons in Alwar almost two weeks ago.

“It happens all over the world, that’s not something happening in Rajasthan alone and if somebody is trying to say that why wasn’t she listening … it is very difficult because if at 12’o clock in the night in some remote part of Rajasthan something like this happens, I would have to be rather much than god to know exactly what is really happening,” said Raje.

“This is the problem that stems out of population explosions. People are frustrated that they are not being able to get jobs. There is frustration which is spreading across communities and people… It’s not something that is coming out of the state. It’s coming out of the people’s angry reaction to their circumstances,” said Raje.
