A BJP delegation from State comprising its Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members will meet President Ram Nath Kovind on January 30 appraising him about deteriorating law and order condition in State. The delegation will inform the President about killing of seven tribals by pro Pathalgadi supporters at Burugulikera village in Chibasa last week and the recent communal tension in Lohardaga and Giridih over CAA and others.
BJP’s Rajya Sabha member, Samir Oroan said, “On January 30 around 15 BJP members which includes its Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members along with executive members will meet the President highlighting the deteriorating law and order condition in State.” Oroan said, “In the name of Pathalgadi some people are creating disturbance in State. These so called Pathagadi supporters are against elected government, democracy and constitution.”
Targeting Chief Minister Hemant Soren, Oroan said, “Chief Minister Soren during his recent visit to Burugulikera village had said that those who were killed in the incident and those who killed both are our people. It shows that CM is with the murderers and promotes such type of incidents.” Oroan also blamed the Government for not announcing any compensation for victim family members.
The BJP leader also attacked State Government for having a soft approach on pro pathalgadi supporters.
BJP national president JP Nadda after the incident had constituted a six member delegation comprising MPs across the country to visit the incident site, but the delegation was stopped from entering the village.
The police stopped the delegation stating that section 144 was clamped in the area, later the BJP delegation sat on dharna at Sonua police station.
Next day on Friday, the BJP delegation sat on dharna outside Raj Bhavan demanding immediate intervention of Governor on the issue.
In its first decision, the Hemant Soren government in Jharkhand on Sunday decided to drop all cases filed against supporters of the Pathalgadi movement in 2017 and 2018. The Pathalgadi movement began in 2017 when stone plaques and signboards were placed in over 200 villages of Jharkhand.
The stone orders dismissed the authority of the Central or the state governments in their villages.
The BJP delegation will also highlight about escalating communal tension in State over CAA issue. The BJP leader said, “Some people are trying to create communal tension in State. These people are targeting Pro CAA members and such type of violence has occurred in Giridih and Lohardaga.”
Violence erupted on Thursday in Lohardaga town after a march, supporting the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Population Register (NPR), was taken out by members of Vishva Hindu Parishad during which stones were allegedly thrown while it was passing through Amla Toli.
