Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and the BJP-RSS of crushing the weak and poor, d uring his visit to Faridabad to meet the family members of the deceased children.
This is an attitude shared by PM, CM & BJP-RSS-If somebody is weak,they can be crushed.What you are seeing is the result of this attitude!— Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) October 21, 2015
He particularly blamed ‘Prime minister’s attitude’ for the death of two children of a Dalit family.

Jitender’s wife, Rekha has suffered serious injuries and is admitted to hospital.
On being asked by a reporter that whether it was just a photo-opportunity, Rahul reacted and said, “What do you mean it’s a photo opportunity? People are dying in this country left, right and centre. And you are saying it’s a photo opportunity. It is insulting. Not to me, but to the family who has gone through this incident.”
