Fabricated cases being registered against Congress leaders in different parts of the state: Pritam
In protest against what it termed coercive attitude of state government towards the leaders of its party, senior Congress leaders held protests on Saturday. While Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Pritam Singh sat on a dharna at the PCC along with other leaders, former cabinet minister Tilak Raj Behad sat at a Dharna outside the office of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in Udham Singh Nagar. The Congress leaders are angry after district administration of Udham Singh Nagar filed a case against Behad recently.
The PCC president said that the incident of violence in Malsa Girdharpur village of Udham Singh Nagar shows the failure of state government and deteriorating law and order condition in the state. He said that Malsa Girdharpur is the village of Congress leader Tilak Raj Behad and when he got information about an incident of firing, he went to the village. “He helped in diffusing the tension in the village and on next day when Behad was again going to his village, the police stopped him and the request of administration he returned back. However a case was registered case against him under the disaster management act. Similarly fabricated cases were registered against Congress leaders in different parts of the country,’’ he said. The PCC President further added that the state administration is acting at the behest of the BJP leaders and is falsely implicating Congress leaders. He cited examples of Chairperson of Srinagar municipal council Poonam Tiwari and former spokesperson Advait Bahuguna and Arun Taneja of Kichha in this respect. Singh warned that the Congress party would not tolerate the discriminating attitude and undue harassment of its leaders. He demanded that the false cases against Congress leaders should immediately be taken back. General secretary (Organisation) of Uttarakhand Congress Vijay Saraswat, vice president Surya Kant Dhasmana, Aryendra Sharma, Surveer Singh Sajwan, spokesperson Garima Dassauni and others were present on the occasion.
