Capital punishment belong to the medieval ages: Gopal Gandhi

Capital punishment belong to the medieval ages: Gopal Gandhi”

Gopalkrishna Gandhi, who filed his nomination on Tuesday as the vice presidential candidate of 18 opposition parties, said he believes death penalty belongs to the medieval ages and it's wrong. In response to criticism from the NDA, particularly the Shiv Sena, Mr Gandhi said Mahatma Gandhi and Babasaheb Ambedkar were his inspiration and they were against death penalty and wanted it abolished.

Gopal responding to the Shiv Sena's attack on him for petitioning the president to save Memon, Gandhi said, "Shiv Sena is doing its duty with dedication".

The former West Bengal governor said there is a people's faith in politics has diminished and collapsed. "A whole force which is dividing our country is in action mode and that spells danger". The party also criticised Congress chief Sonia Gandhi who, on Sunday, had said the country could not be held hostage to those "who wish to impose upon it a narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision". "I would like to see a revival of that faith", he said.

"Yes, I had also written to Pakistan PM demanding that he should not hang Kulbhushan Jadhav", Gandhi said after filing papers for the vice-presidential election. On what basis have you made a decision to field Gopal Krishna Gandhi as a Vice Presidential candidate. Memon was the lone convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case who was sent to the gallows on July 30 two year ago. He even had written to the President.

"I am merely following my principles as I am opposed to death penalty", Gandhi said noting that two former Presidents - K R Narayanan and A P J Abdul Kalam, too, were opposed to capital punishment.
