"Lynchings are not new in India, such incidents took place earlier as well", said Union Home Minister Amit Shah while responding to Bajaj Group Chairman Rahul Bajaj, who pointed out 'intolerance ki hawaa' at an event yesterday. Though home minister Amit Shah tried to act as if Modi government is receptive to criticism, but by unleashing it's IT cell to trolling him relentlessly, the saffron party has exposed themselves. His personal life, his business, his family have all come under troll scrutiny even though this time around those supporting and defending him are not left behind.

"I was born anti-establishment", he said, before posing his questions to the ministers. "What Mr. Rahul Bajaj has said is a sentiment shared by the country across sectors". Others have linked Bajaj to the industrialists who have fled the country. "But she was brought into the consultive committee (on defence) later", he said.

Bajaj recalled that PM Modihad saidhe wouldn't forgive Thakur.

Addressing Amit Shah, Bajaj said, "The atmosphere that is prevalent, it's in our minds but no one here will say".

Speaking on mob lynchings, Bajaj said that it has created a "hawa" of intolerance. "But, we also see that no one has been convicted yet".

Bajaj said although none of his industrial friends would admit it, there is a fear of criticizing the government.

"No need to fear anything. However, whereas you fetch yourself announcing that there may possibly be such an ambiance, we deserve to work to again this", Mr Shah responded. "They don't know what are the mistakes which led to this situation".

In fact, the most stringent criticism had been directed against this regime, the BJP president said.
