‘Sushant case being politicised to garner votes in Bihar’: Congress attacks BJP

Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil has accused the BJP led NDA of trying to politicize actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death for garnering votes in Bihar. Addressing the media, Gohil said that some were trying to gain political mileage out of the death of the actor and asserted that the first to demand a CBI probe in the case was a Congress party MLA. He said that those who think that people would forget issues like migrant crisis, lack of jobs, Covid mishandling are foolish. Gohil also added that some film star is summoned every single day to attempt to divert the attention of the people from the real issue. He added that probe agencies are not supposed to make any evidence public during investigation, but still Whatsapp chats are made public. He said that this is a well thought out strategy and the Modi model in action. CBI, ED and NCB are probing different angles linked to the actor’s death. Several top stars including Deepika Padukone have been summoned by the NCB in the drug probe as well. Watch the full video for all the details.

Watch: Sindhi Congress & PoK activist expose Pakistan brutality at UNHRC

Pakistan’s brutality in territories it has occupied has been exposed at the United Nations Human Rights Council. World Sindhi Congress Secretary General, Lakhu Luhano highlighted the issues of enforced disappearances and extra judicially killings of Sindhi people by Pakistan. ‘The Pakistani agencies are using enforced disappearances as a tool to spread terror to ruthlessly silence their voice. Sindhi people have been raising voice through hundreds of rallies, hunger strikes, protests and petitions but sadly judicial system of Pakistan provided no remedy,’ Luhano said. Luhano requested the council to fulfil its responsibility to save Sindhi people from enforced disappearances by Pakistan state agencies. The Pakistan’s brutal strategies were also exposed by PoK activist Mohd Sajjad Raja. He said that Pakistan has taken away all civil, political and constitutional rights of people in PoK. He said that they are treated like traitors in their own homeland and said that Pakistan has been brainwashing youth on both sides of the border. He also called on the UN body to act against Pakistan’s brutalities. Watch the full video for all the details.
