Congress general secretary for Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi Vadra slammed BJP leader for thrashing government official. Her attack was on the leader who assaulted government official for doing their duty. “BJP leaders were supposed to serve the people of the country after winning elections, but they are instead thrashing employees. Drunk on power some leader uses a bat to beat up an employee, while another resorts to firing and uses lathis against a toll employee for demanding toll fee. Are there any chances of strict action against these people,” Priyanka tweeted in Hindi.
Her statement came after security personnel accompanying BJP leader Ram Shankar Katheria open fired in the air and thrashed a toll employee. In CCTV footage of toll plaza, it was clearly visible that security personnel were in an argument with an employee, holding him by his collar. Later, other colleagues arrived at the scene, thrashed the employee and also fired in the air.
चुनाव जीतकर भाजपा के नेताओं को जनता की सेवा करनी थी मगर वो कर्मचारियों की पिटाई कर रहे हैं। कोई सत्ता की हनक में बल्ले से पीटता है, तो कोई टोल शुल्क माँगने पर फाइरिंग कर लाठी डंडे चलाता है।
क्या इन लोगों पर सख़्त कार्यवाही की सम्भावना है ?https://t.co/BZpUFGx4UO
