Killing of priest in Dausa: BJP slams state govt over minority ‘appeasement’

Jaipur: Two days after a Hindu priest was killed in Rajasthan’s Dausa district, the BJP slammed the Ashok Gehlot-led government in state on Monday, alleging that it was a result of its minority-appeasement policy. Priest Ramjilal Sharma (65) was allegedly thrashed by a man in Kalakho village in Dausa on Friday and he succumbed to the injuries at SMS Hospital in Jaipur on Saturday.

“Once again, an innocent priest has been killed in Rajasthan. This is not the first case. Every month, priests and mahants, who offer prayers at temples, are being targeted by miscreants,” Rathore said in a post on X. He alleged that Rajasthan has become a hub of crime and that criminals are carrying out such incidents under t he nose of the government.
