‘Stop bullying’ reach out to people : Rahul


Among growing anxieties on the issue of intolerance, Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said it would be better for the government to stop “bullying, threatening and abusing” and instead reach out to the people.

“Instead of branding all those who question the govt & Modiji- as unpatriotic, anti national or ‘motivated’ the govt would do better to reach out to people to understand what’s disturbing them.”

“That’s the way to solve problems in India- not by bullying, threatening & abusing!”, the Congress Vice President said in a series of tweets.

Gandhi’s remarks came a day after film actor Aamir Khan during an award function last evening in the national capital said he has been “alarmed” by a number of incidents and that his wife Kiran Rao had even suggested that they should perhaps leave the country.
