New Delhi, September 12:  Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday slammed the Modi government over a host of issues including religious intolerance and “unilateral” decisions like demonetisation of high-valued notes. Speaking at a session in University of California, Bekerley, he said that “violence, anger and the politics of polarisation have raised their ugly head in India”.

“The politics of polarization is very dangerous. Hatred, anger and violence can destroy us. Liberal journalists are being shot. People are being lynched, Dalits are being killed over suspicions of carrying beef, Muslims are killed over suspicions of eating beef, all this is new in India,” TOI quoted him as saying.
