KATHUA, APR 29:
Seeking CBI inquiry in Rasana child murder case, hundreds of Panthers activists spearheaded by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP, Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia State president JKNPP and Mr. Yashpal Kundal State President Young Panthers took out a huge ‘motor cycle rally’ comprising of over 200 two wheelers in Kathua. Receiving a massive public response, the bike rally which started from Kali Bari passed through Kathua city and several villages where the leaders addressed about a dozen public meetings en route including Minekhar Mandi, Chambe da Bagh, Khokhyal, Nagri Parol, Muthi Jagir, Bikhwa, Jakh Barh, Badala and Changrah.
Accusing the dirty combine of BJP-PDP for vitiating peace and causing turmoil in Jammu region and Kathua district in particular, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh said that the sinister objective of the coalition was to divide the society on communal lines and polarize the people to serve their political interests. While taking a jibe on the BJP, he said that utterly incongruent statements by these leaders on different occasions to suit their political convenience had totally unveiled their character and exposed them in their true colours. People were well versed with BJP’s politics of double standards and its opportunist leaders whose greed of power had crossed all limits and boundaries, said Harsh. Rebuking the statement of Dy. CM Nirmal Singh expressing satisfaction with Crime Branch probe in Rassana case, Mr. Singh said that the henpecked deputy of Mehbooba had exhibited a worst toadyism by dis-associating himself from CBI demand and dubbing the protesters as pro offenders.
“The Saffron brigade had shown greatest disregard for the public sentiment in Kathua who had given it a massive unprecedented mandate during Parliament as well as Assembly elections. Turning sycophants of Mehbooba and towing the line of the separatists, the BJP Ministers had ruthlessly dented Dogra pride and honour”, anguished Harsh said.
Hailing the BCI (Bar Council Of India) for defending CBI probe into Rasana case, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh divulged that in the advent of one more officer associated with CB probe into Rasana case having been found to be tainted and suspended in the past for his alleged dubious role, the justification for the peoples demand for CBI probe gets further strengthened.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Ram Saran Dogra, Satish Sharma, Adv. Sohan Lal, Ramesh Gupta, Naseeb Chand, Sonu , Bablu besides others.
