Union Minister and Rajasthan MP Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Sunday slammed Ashok Ghelot led government for Karauli clashes and said that the state govt is working with appeasement and has failed in every aspect of law & order.
Many people have been injured in the violence that took place in Karauli following the stone-pelting during a 'Shobha Yatra'.
Gajendra Singh said, "It's a matter of concern for the people of Rajasthan the way the state govt is working with appeasement & has failed in every aspect of law & order."
He also added that police morale has completely plummeted and is under political pressure.
Further he said, "This case (Karauli stone-pelting) must be investigated, guilty and the people who provide protection to them must not be spared."
"Attack on people who were celebrating 'bhartiya nav-varsha' in India is worrisome," the Rajasthan MP said.

"I have talked to the Director-General of Police about the incident. I have urged him to take strict action against the perpetrators of the clashes irrespective of their community so that a message goes to all that only rule of law will prevail in Rajasthan," said Gehlot while addressing the press conference.
