Ranchi, Leader of legislature wing of BJP Babulal Marandi has written a letter to Jharkhand DGP pointing out to the discrimination being made in filing of cases against the leaders and workers of the BJP.
He said that recently police has registered cases against leaders and workers of the BJP who had protested in the fields over the issues of the farmers in which state BJP president Deepak Prakash and Kanke MLA Samri Lal have been named as accused.
He said that the actions are a clear reflection that the parties in power are making use of police to suppress the voice of opposition and is also exposing their dual faced. He said that when on one hand the parties in power including Congress and RJD do some event or agitation the police keeps silence.
Babulal Marandi pointed to the recent examples of agitation staged by the Congress party on June 11 over rising prices of petrol and diesel, celebration of birthday of Lalu Prasad Yadav by Minister Satyanand Bhokat in Chatra on June 11, celebration of birthday of Rahul Gandhi on June 19 etc.
He further wrote that prior to all these Congress had staged an agitation before the Raj Bhawan in support of farmers agitation in which all Covid guidelines were set aside but unfortunately in none of these programme police took any action. Babulal said that dual face of the police is not good for the interest of the state and demanded that the DGP should take self cognisance of these cases and take appropriate action.
