High drama as legislator stopped on way to Pipli

Rohtak, September 10

High drama was witnessed on Thursday morning when Independent MLA from Meham, Balraj Kundu, along with his supporters was leaving his farm house on Jind road here for Pipli (Kurukshetra) to attend the farmers' rally.

A huge police force surrounded the MLA and his farm house and did not let him and his supporters proceed to Pipli. A heated exchange of words was also witnessed between the enraged supporters and police officials.

The situation turned tense when the policemen came in front of Kundu's SUV and forcibly stopped the vehicle after the latter tried to go ahead.

Sensing the gravity of the situation, the policemen took Kundu and his supporters into custody. They were taken to the Police Lines in a bus. The MLA and his supporters were released from there in the afternoon.

Condemning the police action, Kundu later told mediapersons that it was the murder of democratic rights of the people. It had exposed the anti-farmer face of the state government. Farmers were fighting for their rights but the police were arresting them at the behest of the state government, he alleged.

"It is unfortunate that no one takes action when the BJP organises rallies amid the Covid pandemic while farmers, who have reached the verge of devastation due to erroneous policies, are being stopped from organising rallies in the name of Covid," alleged the MLA, adding that he would continue to raise the farmers' voice come what may.
