CONDEMNING THE incident at MIG police station and subsequent violence by the Bajrang Dal activists in the City yesterday, Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee today criticised the role of police in the chain of events wherein the Sangh organisations, including the Bajrang Dal have been instrumental in nearly 100-odd incidents of violence.

“Be it the seize of an aircraft at the Devi Ahilya Airport, be it the incident of Prof Sabharwal’s murder at Ujjain or yesterday’s incident at the MIG police station, one thing which was common is inaction by the police,” MPCC spokesperson K K Mishra said in a release here.

Protesting the murder of one of their worker, Bajrang Dal activists had yesterday gheraoed the MIG police station and also forcefully captured the TI’s chair amidst sloganeering.

“It has become very clear that the police has not only been unable to protect the common man from the Bajrang Dal and Sangh activists but has also become the slaves of the BJP and the Sangh people,” Mishra said.

“It has once again proved false Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s claim that ‘there would be the rule of law’ in the state,” the MPCC spokesperson said adding, “This was Bajrang Dal’s first act of violence after the decision of the State Government to allow its employees to participate in the RSS shakhas and there would definitely be an increase in number of such events.”

Mishra also warned that if there were no check on the violence perpetrated by Bajrang Dal, Sangh and its associate organisations “the Congress with its lakhs and lakhs of supporters would take action itself within the ambit of the Constitution.”
