Kallakurichi hooch tragedy: Expressing concern over the tragic loss of lives in the spurious liquor tragedy, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President JP Nadda on Monday wrote a letter to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge. Calling the hooch tragedy a “state-sponsored murder”, JP Nadda urged Mallikarjun Kharge to pursue Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to join the protest against the incident.

“We also urge you to pursue Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra, to either pay a visit to the victim’s families or atleast muster the courage to raise their voices on this issue rather than maintaining a defeaning selective, hypocritical silence… I invite you to join our leaders for a black band protest against this “state sponsored disaster” in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi inside the Prerna Sthal within Parliament precincts,” wrote JP Nadda in his letter to Kharge.
