Union Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan termed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s assurance to the arrested Popular Front of India (PFI) member’s family as deplorable.
The PFI activist was arrested on his way to Hathras to meet the victim’s family.
“The reported assurance that is supposed to have been given by Rahul Gandhi to arrested PFI activist’s family is highly objectionable and deplorable. This shows that the Congress is in complete control of the Muslim League in Kerala,” the Minister told news agency ANI.
Earlier, the BJP had slammed Rahul Gandhi for meeting the family of Siddiqui Kappan, a journalist who has links with PFI.
