Workers celebrated Black Day in all the 27 organizational districts of the state on Thursday in protest against the lathi-charge during the BJP’s gherao on Wednesday. Party workers and office-bearers across the state, including the state office, registered a protest by wearing black badges. 

State President and MP Deepak Prakash, who was injured in the lathi charge, said that the government is trying to implement the policy of appeasement on the basis of sticks. There will be hardly any government in history, against whom there will be so much public anger in just two years. The state government should remember that if it continues the policy of appeasement, then we will not let them sleep peacefully. The party’s struggle will continue. 

Deepak Prakash said that the number of sticks the Hemant government has showered on BJP workers, the sooner the government’s chair will go. He alleged that JMM goons in the guise of police resorted to lathi on BJP workers. But BJP workers are not going to be afraid or back away from this, rather the movement against appeasement will intensify.

Describing the gherao as a success, he thanked all the party workers across the state for this and congratulated them. He said that the struggle of BJP workers would continue against the anti-people policies of the state government by becoming the voice of 1.25 crore people of Jharkhand. The people of Jharkhand will not tolerate attacks and atrocities on women power.

Organization General Secretary Dharampal Singh also expressed his gratitude to the thousands of workers who came to the assembly gherao program from all the districts. He said that the BJP is in favor of cultural nationalism. Congress and its allies have tried everything possible to hurt Indian culture through appeasement and vote bank politics. But the Bharatiya Janata Party will never allow this effort to succeed. He wished the injured workers a speedy recovery.
