Claiming that its leaders have been being focused below the guise of farm agitation, the Punjab BJP has alleged that its senior leaders have been roughed up and held ‘captive’ at Rajpura city late on Sunday night time, triggering protest.
The assault got here on a day when protestors, claiming to be farmers, focused deputy speaker in Haryana meeting and BJP chief Ranbir Gangwa’s automobile in Sirsa district in neighbouring Haryana. The police mentioned the rear windscreen of the SUV broke as stones have been pelted, however nobody was harm.
Within the Rajpura incident, basic secretary of Punjab BJP, Subash Sharma claimed that he together with different celebration leaders and employees have been allegedly “chased, roughed up and held hostage” for over three hours after a gathering. “It was clearly a state-sponsored deliberate assault. The police have been a mute spectator and so they did little to rescue us,’’ Sharma informed Information18.com.
The leaders reportedly needed to take shelter in a close-by home to save lots of themselves from the unruly mob, although the police denied they have been bodily attacked. A police staff, together with two DSPs, was current with the BJP leaders, even because the Patiala DIG and SSP rushed to the city to escort them to security.
Movies from Rajpura that went viral on social media confirmed offended farmer union members waving black flags and attacking a BJP supporter because the police tried to escort them to security.
DIG Vikramjeet Duggal and SSP Sandeep Garg reached the spot and rescued the leaders earlier than taking them to Patiala.
The highest brass of Punjab BJP condemned the assault on celebration employees in Rajpura, calling it “daylight homicide” of democracy. BJP state president Ashwani Sharma and nationwide basic secretary Tarun Chugh, in separate statements, mentioned BJP’s political rivals had been throttling the voice of the celebration below the garb of farmers. Slamming the state authorities for permitting such parts have a free run, Sharma requested CM Capt Amarinder Singh to provide strict instructions to the police to throw such parts behind the bars.
