Bharatiya Janata Party’s Karnataka MLA Jeevaraj said today that if only Journalist Gauri Lankesh had not written about the celebration of the “death” of the Sangh Parivar, she would probably have been alive today.
The gruesome murder which saw nationwide protests from among the journalists is now shocked about this revelation. She was accorded all the respects given by the State for her last ceremony. The CM of Karnataka who came under the fire after setting up a SIT to investigate the murder had later retracted by announcing that he is ready to order a CBI probe, if her family members wanted it.
“During the Congress government we have seen how RSS workers have lost their lives. Gauri Lankesh had written in her paper about the slaughter of the RSS. Now if she had refrained from writing articles like that she would have probably been alive today,” Jeevaraj can be heard saying in the video. He was seen mentioning further “Gauri is like a sister to me but the way she has written against us (BJP and Sangh), it is unacceptable.”
The video which was telecast by a private channel showed Jeevaraj, while addressing a public meeting of party workers, said several RSS workers have lost their lives in this Congress-ruled state but the Siddaramaiah government did not initiate any action against the culprits. The authenticity and the genuineness of the video cannot be ascertained or validated as of now.
