Will review sedition law, make it more stringent after coming back to power: Rajnath

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Senior BJP leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said the sedition law will be reviewed for any weaknesses and made more stringent after his party returns to power at the Centre.

Singh, addressing a gathering at Delhi's Shastri Park area in support of party candidates for Lok Sabha elections Manoj Tiwari and Gautam Gambhir, also paid tribute to the Maharashtra policemen who were killed in an IED blast in the state's Naxal-affected Gadchiroli district.

"We will see if there are any weaknesses in the sedition law after coming back to power. We will make it so stringent that it will quiver the souls of traitors," the home minister said.

He also took shots at the opposition for raising questions over the number of terrorists killed in the Balakot air strike.

"Should our soldiers stop to count the bodies after strikes? Only vultures count bodies, not the warriors," he said.

Singh asserted that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will secure two-third majority in the Lok Sabha polls.
