The CPI (M) on Wednesday condemned the police firing in Dausa, Bundi and other places in Rajasthan, and demanded a judicial enquiry into the incidents.
The agitation by the Gujjar community took place because of the promise made by the BJP before the elections to include them in the scheduled tribe category. ``The failure of the government to deal with the matter politically has led to the violence and the needless deaths in police firing,'' the party said in statement.
The statement added that the BJP government headed by Vasundhara Raje has become notorious for its heavy-handed police repression on popular movements. ``The kisan movement faced brutal repression and six people were killed. The BJP leadership, which hypocritically tried to exploit the Nandigram incident, should take strong action against its state government,'' it said.
