THE CITY Youth Congress activists today staged a demonstration in front of commissioner’s office and handed over a memorandum, addressed to Governor Balram Jakhar, to deputy commissioner Vandana Vaid demanding resignation of State Government over its failure on law and order front.
City Youth Congress president Devendra Singh Yadav and general secretary Ramji Sharma led the demonstration. The memorandum stated that law and order in the State is going from bad to worse. Broad daylight murder of BJP MLA and his wife in Omkareshwar and rise in incidents of loot, dacoity, rape and murder indicate this.
Incidents of atrocities on women are also on the rise and the government has been utterly powerless in curbing them, the memorandum alleged.
The memorandum further stated that influential criminals are being handled with kid gloves by the town inspectors who often invite them to the police stations. The police officials are reluctant to act against the criminals for fear of getting transferred.
The State Government, the memorandum said, is encouraging anti-social elements by not punishing the persons involved in bashing up of a police official in Bhopal during L K Advani’s visit. The memorandum cited another incident involving a Bajrang Dal activist who had occupied TI’s chair at MIG police station to emphasise that people associated with BJP are openly thumbing their nose at the police.
