Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday hit out at Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah for the murder of noted journalist Gauri Lankesh. He questioned why proper security was not provided to Gauri even when there was a threat to her.
"We ask Karnataka CM, was Gauri Lankesh helping naxals surrender with government's consent and if so why was she not given security?" said RS Prasad.
Prasad said, “Condemning the murder is correct why my liberal friends maintained silence after killings of BJP-RSS workers in Kerala and Karnataka?
"Even before the ‘I’ of investigation could start, Rahul Gandhi publicly alleged that RSS & right wing ideology is responsible. Would like to ask Karnataka CM in light of the comment should we expect fair probe by SIT & does CM agree with comment?" said Prasad.
