Politics starts after arrest of former councillor Sonkar
Ex- councillor Ajay Sonkar alias Ghonchu, one of the accused in the deaths resulting from consumption of illicit liquor, has been sent to jail on 14 days remand. According to sources, police are now attempting to arrest the other named accused in the case.
According to a senior police official, accused Ghonchu was already on the radar of police, but due to the carelessness or political pressure, district police failed to take timely action against him.
It is pertinent to mention here that locals have alleged that the police and other authorities concerned are trying to save accused Ghonchu. They said that even though he has been arrested, the case against him does not link him directly with the deaths.
On the other hand, after the arresting of the ex-councillor, the political accusations against the ruling government of Bharatiya Janata Party have started to build up. Mahanagar president of Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (UKD) Sunil Dhyani said that even though BJP is now trying to cut all ties with him, it is quite evident that he had an affiliation with the party. Many other Ghonchu’s are being aided and abetted by the sheer popularity and power of the ruling government which is causing damage to society.
He added, “An MLA of the party first said that Ghonchu is not a member of BJP. But he was expelled from the party and arrested by the police. This shows their double standards and the support and protection they are giving to criminals like him.”
It is also important to mention here that taking cognisance of the recent Pathariya Peer incident in which at least six persons died, Director General (Law and Order) Ashok Kumar has ordered a campaign against illicit supply of liquor in every district.
