Humane approach should be taken on release of Rajiv killers: BJP
Making a guarded response to the AIADMK’s decision to remit the sentence of life imprisonment of seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Tamil Nadu unit today said a “humane approach” should be taken on their incarceration period, but it should be within the legal framework.
The party’s state unit chief Tamilisai Sounderrajan also charged the government with not taking a “firm decision” when there was time earlier. However, she underlined her party’s stand that not a single culprit should be spared, while no innocent should be punished. “One has to take a humane approach while looking at the time spent by them in jail but everything should be within the legal framework,” she said after paying obeisance at the Lord Venkateswara Temple.
