BJP protests police brutality on its youth activists
New Delhi, Aug 11 (ANI): Thousands of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters took part in a mammoth rally at the Jantar Mantar here today to protest the police action on its youth party workers on Tuesday.
The protestors, who were accompanied by BJP leaders Vijay Jolly and Vijender Gupta, also raised slogans against the Delhi Government and demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit over her indictment in the recently published Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on irregularities observed in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) President Anurag Thakur condemning the police action on Wednesday said if the government fails to put an end to corruption, then the citizens will continue to express their anger in the Parliament as well as on the streets.
"Are the youth not allowed to keep their point against corruption in the country, will they be suppressed? If the government will continue with this behaviour, then anger will be expressed inside and outside the Parliament," he added.
Thakur further said that one person could not be blamed for the scams, and added that the whole Congress Party was looting the country.
"Its not just one person, the whole congress has looted the country, whether it be through Commonwealth Games or 2G spectrum allocation scam. Is it right to baton charge people who raise their voice on such issues, will the youth voice be suppressed," he added.
Delhi Police used water cannons, lobbed tear gas shells and baton charged the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activists to prevent them from marching towards the Parliament to protest corruption and price rise on Tuesday.
Around 50 BJYM workers were injured in the baton charge. 23 policemen were injured when the protestors threw stones, bricks, bottles and sticks at them. (ANI)
