Senior BJP leader and Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad lashed out at Rahul Gandhi, after the Congress Vice President alleged that the RSS and the right wing were behind the killing of senior activist and journalist Gauri Lankesh.

Even before investigation could start, Rahul Gandhi publicly alleged that RSS and the right wing ideology is responsible for Lankesh’s death. I would like to ask the Karnataka Chief Minister if he agrees with him and in light of the comment, should we expect a fair probe by the SIT?

During a press conference on 8 September, Prasad also slammed the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka. If Lankesh was “helping Naxals surrender with the government’s consent, then why was she not given security,” he asked.
