Communal violence to take down India’s economy to Sri Lanka, Ukraine’s level: Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut


Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday warned that Indian economy may stoop down to the level of Sri Lanka and Ukraine due to the communal riots that leads to the loss of trade and employment. 

“Riots result in a loss in trade and employment. The employment of the working people is drowned and now the country seems to be jumping into that crisis… Indian economy will do down to the level of Sri Lanka and Ukraine,” he said.

“These communal clashes will have a direct impact on the country’s economy. After COVID-19, the economy has started recovering, but some people are trying to spread unrest,” he alleged.

Raut further mentioned the communal clashes that took place in Delhi and Mumbai and said the riots are being instigated for the electoral gains.  

“Municipal corporation elections are about to come in Delhi and all this is being done to win that election. The same has been done in Mumbai and the issue of loudspeakers has been raised here,” said Raut.

“The way the atmosphere of riots has been created in two major cities of the country is very unfortunate,” he added. 

On Sunday, Shiv Sena leader question Prime Minister Narendra Modi and slammed him over his silence on the several outbreaks that occurred during Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti across the nation. He said PM must speak about “communal harmony” and “unity” to calm people.

As many as 23 people have been arrested while two juveniles apprehended so far in connection with the incident in which nine people, including eight police personnel and a civilian, were injured.

Clashes broke out between two groups after stone-pelting incidents were reported from the Jahangirpuri area in the national capital on Saturday evening during a procession last Saturday. Some people, including two policemen, have been injured.
