THOUSANDS ARRESTED, POLICE USES WATER CANNON
STRONG DEMONSTRATION AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS BY BJYM, FIR SHOULD BE LODGED AGAINST CONSPIRATORS
Under the leadership of Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and BJYM President Nakul Bhardwaj, thousands of youth demonstrators staged strong demonstration at Police Headquarters, ITO demanding registration of FIR against the conspirators of blocking decrease in power tariff and sending them to jail. They crossed all the barricades put by the police. When the demonstrators continued to march ahead, the police used force against the demonstrating youth and also used water cannon on them. Even after that, the zeal of the demonstrators did not come down. Finally the police had to arrest them.
Arrested demonstrators started Dharna in the Police Station itself. They were raising slogans “Bijli ke badhe dam, wapas lo, wapas lo, Sadyantrakariyon me hai talmel, unko bhejo jaldi jail, Delhi Sarkar ko Barkhasht Karo, Barkhast Karo, Jab Tak Atyachar Rahega, Janakrosh Barkarar Rahega.” In today’s demonstrators the complainant Abhay Verma, Councillor Nikki Singh, Sushil Upadhyay, Ram Dayal Mehto, Santosh Bharti and BJYM General Secretary Gajendra Yadav, Manjeet Singh and all the Office bearers participated. Women youth demonstrators also participated in large numbers in the demonstration and raised strong slogans against Delhi Government.
All the arrested demonstrators including Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta staged Dharna in the police station. They demanded that either the police should take strong action against all the accused including Chief Minister otherwise send the demonstrators to jail. On 13th Oct, BJP had lodged complaint against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Officers of the Power Department, two members of DERC, senior officers of the three power companies in Indraprastha Estate Police Station. Police has not lodged FIR on the complaint of BJP. It is obvious that the police is under the pressure of Government, Officers and power companies.
Delhi Police has to say that the case has been assigned to the Economic Offence Wing. Even after a week, the police has neither arrested any conspirator named in the complaint nor interrogated them. BJP Pradesh President has to say that if these high profile people are not sent to jail then they shall destroy all the proofs and influence the witnesses which will make the investigation in the case very difficult. Police is providing full opportunity to the conspirators to destroy proof and influence the witnesses. This is injustice with crores of power consumers. BJP will continue against this injustice till the power tariff is decreased and the conspirators are sent to jail.
