Throwing a problem at Indian democracy, fugitive gangster Lakha Sidhana appeared at a rally at Punjab CM Capt Amrinder Singh’s native village Mehraj in Bathinda district on Tuesday and dared Delhi Police to arrest him or some other accused inside Punjab. It was a direct problem thrown at police and a travesty of regulation and order.
Lakha Sidhana spewed venom in opposition to the Central authorities, addressed 1000’s who had gathered on the rally after which fled the spot driving a motorcycle. This gangster claims to be an activist and is hiding from Delhi Police, which has introduced a Rs 1 lakh reward for info resulting in his arrest.
Sidhana is on the run for the reason that January 26 mayhem in Delhi, when anti-national components pressured their approach into the ramparts of the historic Crimson Fort, attacked policemen and hoisted a flag on the spot. On the rally, Lakha Sidhana known as on farmers, merchants and customary folks to accentuate the agitation and mentioned nothing lower than a whole repeal of all of the three farm legal guidelines was acceptable.
Sidhana was on the dais for almost two hours, however not a single policeman tried to arrest him. He requested villagers to gherao Delhi Police workforce if it involves their villages to spherical up activists. He additionally warned Punjab CM Capt. Amrinder Singh to not enable state police to accompany the Delhi police groups. In his speech, Sidhana mentioned, this combat was not just for ‘fasal’ (crops) but in addition for ‘nasl’ (generations) and historical past is written for individuals who combat for his or her rights.
For greater than per week earlier than Tuesday’s rally, posters have been put up in and round Bathinda asking folks to return and listen to Lakha Sidhana communicate, and but Punjab Police didn’t act. The Particular Cell of Delhi Police had been making an attempt to find Sidhana for the final a number of weeks, however the gangster had been continually altering his places. A number of days in the past, he circulated a video speech recorded at an area gurdwara.
Tuesday’s rally was fastidiously deliberate by the organizers to cease police from coming close to the dais. Tractor trolleys have been posted on the roads resulting in Bhatinda grain mandi, the place the rally was held.
The saddest half is that some high farmer leaders like Gurnam Singh Chadhuni and Joginder Singh Ugrahan are supporting components like Lakha Sidhana. In Chandigarh, Gurnam Singh Chadhuni informed a kisan panchayat to not enable police to enter the village and arrest activists. He requested villagers to gherao police workforce in the event that they tried to arrest anyone. One other farmer chief Ruldu Singh Mansa was sitting on the dais. Delhi Police had issued a summons to Mansa to look for investigation, however the farmer chief declined.
From the dais, Chadhuni challenged Delhi Police to return and arrest Ruldu Singh Mansa. Joginder Singh Ugrahan threatened that if Mansa was arrested, there can be “waves of violence” in Punjab.
I’m shocked how senior farmer leaders, who until yesterday have been claiming that they’d no connections with Crimson Fort violence accused Deep Sidhu and Lakha Sidhana, have been sharing the dais with the latter. After the Crimson Fort violence, farmer leaders had alleged that Sidhu and Sidhana had connections with BJP they usually have been despatched to Crimson Fort intentionally to tarnish the picture of the farmers’ motion.
The image is evident now: those that indulged in violence and insulting of the nationwide flag on January 26, are being given open safety by the farmer leaders and their political sympathizers. The farmer leaders had misled the nation after the violence and are nonetheless persevering with to mislead the folks.
