New Delhi, July 20: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday suggested to the states that a “strict law, if needed” should be framed by them to stop mob lynching incidents and assured them of providing all support to fight with the menace happening in the country. Condemning these rumour mongering incidents for the second consecutive day, the minister, in his speech during the debate on the no-confidence vote in Lok Sabha, said such incidents should not happen. “I had spoken over the issue yesterday (Thursday) too. I had asked to take stern action against mob lyncing incidents. I had also assured that the Central government would provide all support to stop such incidents. And, I want to tell the state governments too that strict law, if needed, should be made to stop these incidents,” he said. (IANS)
