The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday slammed Congress led goverment in Rajasthan over the stone pelting incident following a former BJP councillor's son killing. Locals in Chittorgarh's Dhuncha Bazar area pelted stones at police today as the situation remained tense following the killing of Jagdish Soni's son last night.

BJP leader and Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav condemning the stone pelting incident on Twitter wrote, "No rule of law in Rajasthan."

While, Rajendra Rathore, Deputy Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan, said, "The incident of killing of Ratan Soni, son of former BJP councilor in Chittorgarh, is a questionnable issue on the law and order situation of the state. This video of stone pelting on police in connection with the same incident is telling the real picture of law and order that has been broken in the state."
