Hindu Samaj Party president, Kamlesh Tiwari, was shot dead. While the police have arrested three people, Kamlesh’s mother is pointing the blame in a totally different direction. Kusum Tiwari blames Yogi Adityanath’s government for the murder that shook Uttar Pradesh.
Kamlesh Tiwari’s murder has taken over social media with people questioning the lack of security. Among all the ruckus, the Hindu Samaj Party leader’s mother, Kusum Tiwari is pointing the blame finger to Yogi Adityanath’s government. She is claiming that the UP government ignored repeated security requests.
Instead of enhancing, the security was toned down for her son, Kamlesh Tiwari.
Among the heated discussions over religion and violence, Kusum Tiwari has lost her son, Kamlesh Tiwari who was murdered on 18 October. Reportedly, he was killed over his remarks on Prophet Muhammad.
While India is split into religions playing the blame game, Kusum came out to blame on someone who no one could have predicted. She said that the state government “betrayed” their family.
Speaking about Kamlesh Tiwari’s murder, she told India TV, “The police will parade some innocent persons and say these are the ones who killed my son, while give protection to the mafia. What will the administration do when they are the ones who betrayed us.”
Furthermore, Kusum Tiwari said, “Agar prashashan ne dhyan dekar unko surakhsha di hoti to jo aaj ghatana hui hai, wo nahi hoti. Hamara beta bach jata (Had the government provided adequate security to my son, this tragedy would not have taken place and he would have been alive today). What can we expect from this government? Nothing.”
Why is the Yogi Government to blame?
Why did Kusum Tiwari blame Kamlesh Tiwari’s murder blamed on the Yogi government? According to her, the current UP government thinned Tiwari’s security cover.
In Kusum Tiwari’s own words, “Under the previous government, my son had a security cover of around 17 cops. When Yogi Adityanath became CM, it was first reduced to eight-nine and then to four. Two of them followed my son wherever he went while two would be stationed at his office. But on the day my son was murdered, surprisingly none of the four security guards was with him.”
