Barbarous police attack on the people raising voice against corruption by Congress
FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION WILL CONTINUE – VIJENDER GUPTA
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that Government and police may commit atrocities against the BJP workers but the public movement of BJP against corruption in Government, bungling in Commonwealth Games, price spiral and anti people policies will continue till the Congress is not decimated. Today, Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and six other senior leaders of the party appeared before Patiala House Court in a case lodged by the police. The Court has fixed 25th April, 2012 as the date of next hearing and for getting bail. This case relates to the incident, when more than 10 thousand workers under the leadership of Pradesh President were going to submit a memorandum to the Central Home Minister against corruption in Commonwealth Games on 24th February, 2011. The Government with the help of police resorted to barbarous lathi charge on BJP workers. More than 200 workers were injured out of which 34 were seriously injured. The Government in spite of its police action lodged cases against BJP workers under serious sections as if the BJP workers were dreaded criminals. The police lathi charge of 24th February, 2011 was raised in the Parliament by hon’ble Lal Krishna Advani on 25th Feb, 2011 due to which the proceeding of Parliament was stalled.
The leaders against whom cases of serious offences have been lodged by the police and for which there was hearing in the Patiala House Court are, Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta, Shri Pawan Sharma, Sardar R.P. Singh, Shri Pravesh Verma, Smt. Shikha Rai, Shri Mahendra Gupta and Rajeshwar Nagpal.
Shri Gupta told that heavy corruption was committed in the Commonwealth Games. The Central and Delhi Government committed bungling of crores in the Games. This has been confirmed by the Shunglu Committee formed by the Prime Minister. The CAG has also said that Delhi Government committed bungling in the Commonwealth Games and it presented the report before the country after making full assessment. But no legal action has been taken against the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit and other persons who are involved in corruption. Contrary to it when the BJP workers raised their voice against corruption then the administration and Delhi police resorted to barbarous lathi charge and lodged criminal cases against us.
Shri Gupta told that Home Minister P. Chidambaram had assured that impartial enquiry will be held in the case of police atrocities but the Government has neither taken any legal action against any person nor any impartial enquiry has been done. Shri Gupta told that we will not bow before the atrocities of the Government and workers will continue their movement against corruption and anti people policies with more vigour.
