TODAY’s DELHI MAHABANDH WAS UNPRECIDENTED, HISTORICAL: 50,000 WORKERS CAME IN THE STREETS, EFFIGIES BURNT ON 100 PLACES: THOUSANDS ARRESTED BESIDES VIJENDER GUPTA
On the call of BJP for Bharat Bandh today, people of Delhi observed unprecedented and historical Delhi Mahabandh. More than 50,000 workers of BJP came in the streets in entire Delhi and made the Mahabandh a complete success. Effigies of Manmohan, Sheila Government were burnt on 100 intersection of Delhi. Thousands of workers marching towards PM residence under the leadership of Shri Vijender Gupta were arrested by the police which included Shri Gupta. The people of Delhi spontaneously came in the streets and raised slogans against the Government, blocked the traffic and resolved to dislodge Congress Government.
Addressing a big public meeting at Chandni Chowk, BJP National President Shri Nitin Gadkari said that Indian National Congress has become All India Coal Congress. It has nothing to do with the people. The anti-poor face of the Congress has been exposed. Government has forgotten the path of democracy and is busy in loot. Scam of 5 lakh crore rupees has been committed during the Congress rule. Had this amount been spent on public welfare then every family could have been provided house. He demanded the Government roll back of FDI, hike in the prices of cooking gas, diesel, power tariff immediately.
The NDA Convenor Sharad Yadav told that the UPA Government has lost its right to rule the country. He had never seen such corrupt and anti people Government in his life. This Government is busy in corruption but claims to be honest. It is following the path of dictatorship. Traders leader Shyam Bihari Mishra, Leader of Opposition Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Vani Tripathi, Meenakshi Lekhi and many Legislators, Councillors, Pradesh Office Bearers, District Presidents courted arrest.
Before marching towards PM residence Shri Vijender Gupta told in a big public meeting in Chandni Chowk that the way in which the traders, industrialists, common man transporters, mandies, commercial establishments, schools, auto-taxi operators have given unprecedented support, is indicated of the fact that the Congress Government is not only in minority in the Parliament but has also lost the trust of the people. Congress Government has no constitutional or moral rights to continue in power even for a day. The way in which all the anti Congress political parties have supported the Bharat Bandh shows that the UPA Government has lost its rights to continue in power. He further told that the Government allowed FDI in retail trade surreptitiously and hiked the price of diesel, cooking gas only to divert to attention of the people from its black deeds. The steep hike in the power tariff has caused great pains among the people of Delhi. This Government will have to go.
The traders and the people of all the 11 districts of Delhi made this Bandh historical. The streets of Delhi looked deserted from the morning to evening. Supporters of Bandh were seen everywhere in Delhi. Demonstrations were staged and Effigies of Government were burnt at Virat Chowk, Dakshinpuri, Hamdard Chowk, Sangam Vihar, Meethapur, Badarpur, in South Delhi. Here Sh.
