Punjab: Protesting Farmers Attack BJP Leaders In Rajpura; Party Workers Allege ‘Punjab Police Involved’



Manasa Maddila, Mumbai Uncensored
On July 11, Bhupesh Aggarwal, Spokesperson, Bharatiya Janata Party, Punjab, and other nearby pioneers were assaulted by supposed farmer protestors in Rajpura, District Patiala, Punjab. BJP workers have asserted that the state police didn’t make a prompt move to scatter the dissenters. 
In an articulation to news office ANI, Aggarwal said, “500 farmers beat me up at the command of DSP Tiwana. He purposely sent me to some unacceptable side. No Police power went with me, my life is under danger. I called up the SSP a few times however without much of any result. DSP paid no notice to us. He did this purposely.”

In a video proclamation distributed on his page, he said, “I’m stuck in a little kitchen. There are many nonconformists outside, prepared to kill me. The Police sent me off course. There is a danger to my life, and nobody from Police is prepared to help me. These dissidents are attempting to kill BJP individuals.
Vikas Sharma, General Secretary, BJYM, was with him around then. While conversing with the media, Vikas said there was a gathering meeting on July 11. The gathering was halted by the Police, and they requested that they leave from a particular path. “There were nonconformists who halted us. Those were not ranchers but rather hooligans masked as ranchers. The genuine ranchers are occupied in their fields.” He further added that they were pounded with mallet. “We saved ourselves by stowing away in somebody’s home, he said.
Superintendent of Police (DSP) JS Tiwana denied the claims. He said, “It’s a bogus charge. 100 Police work force and 2 SHOs were sent. Ranchers fought outside and they (BJP) held their program inside. They were brought out securely and were going in their vehicles. They might’ve been encircled later. Nothing occurred before us.”

BJP General Secretary, Subhash Sharma, said they were held up in BJP Yuva Morcha President’s home at Rajpura. Around 400 individuals with blades, blocks and corrosive jugs had encircled the house. He asserted that Police couldn’t handle the circumstance. 

In a video articulation distributed on BJP Punjab’s true Twitter handle, he said, “The circumstance in Punjab is more regrettable than the hour of uprising. More than 400 individuals with weapons have encircled the place of a BJP karyakarta. They are holding banners of Kisan, yet in actuality, they are Congress thugs. They have blades, blocks and corrosive jugs in their grasp. They are calling to kill us. It has been four hours since Police have been remaining here, yet they are not effectively scatter them. We may get assaulted after this video. Yet, I might want to tell Police and Capt Amarinder that we won’t get terrified by this crowd mindset.”

He further added that Congress couldn’t stifle the voice of BJP. He said, “I might want to demand Capt Amarinder to stop this dramatization. The general population is watching, and they will answer when the opportunity arrives.” ANI had later detailed that nonconformists pelted stones when the Police were helping Aggarwal to leave the premises.

Since the three new homestead laws: The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 were instituted in September 2020, rancher associations have been fighting requesting to move back the laws. They have been asserting that these laws are not to support the ranchers. Up until this point, a few rounds of talks between the association government and ranchers have neglected to bring any goal. 
The rancher fights had turned vicious on Republic Day that caused the mob like circumstance in Delhi. A few captures have been made in different FIRs enlisted against the agitators. More than 300 Police staff were harmed, and property worth crores were harmed during the uproars.

The Mumbai local train network was the transport for 800,000 people daily or 2.9 Billion people every year in the pre-covid era. During the pandemic the local trains were suspended to curb transmission due to less distancing among passengers which also affected thousands of jobs.

But after continuous protests by BJP in Maharashtra demanding re-starting of local trains after decline in new cases, the Maharashtra Government has decided to resume the service from August 15th, India’s Independence Day. Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray in a televised briefing to the state said that “People can travel from local trains after 14 days of their second dose of the vaccine.”

Maharashtra recorded 5,508 new COVID-19 cases and 151 deaths in the last 24 hours. In the past seven days Maharashtra reported 41,774 cases which is 19,715 less than 61,489 cases reported in the first week of July. “Continuous relaxation will depend upon the case trend,” added CM Thackeray.
