Was Varanasi violence a pre-planned political
move before the upcoming Bihar elections?
On Monday evening, over a dozen vehicles including police jeeps and a
few shops were torched in the clashes between the police and the
protesters during the Anyay Pratikar Yatra organised by sadhus in
Varanasis Godaulia area. Nearly 50 people were injured and curfew was
imposed in Laksa, Chowk, Dashashwamedha and City Kotwali, which was
lifted later at night.
So whose fault do you think it was? While the holy city was set on fire,
police said that the violence that rocked Varanasi was pre-planned, and
they have evidence for it.
Bihar elections are just around the corner and the political parties are actively
blaming each other and accusing each other for something or the other. The police
are quite sure about the arson that hit the city to be pre-planned. SSP Akash
Kulhari said that the police have evidence to say that the violence was pre-planned,
adding that who or what instigated them is being investigated.
Meanwhile, if media reports are to be believed, Swami Avimukteshwaranand, who
was leading the protests, said that his supporters are not behind the violence. He
added that his people hadnt even reached the spot when the trouble began, and
the cause of violence will become clear only after an enquiry.
Swami Avimukteshwaranand also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and
Gujarat Chief Minister of being silent
Swami Avimukteshwaranand said that they cannot expect anything
from the PM as even the chief minister, who knew about the entire
situation did not utter a word.
He said that the leaders have not time for people be it the CM or PM,
adding that this kind of democracy is proving to be more dangerous
First Dadri and now Varanasi, why arent you speaking up, Mr Prime Minister?
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh questioned PMs silence over the violent
incident in Varanasi. He said that Prime Minister is always tweeting on everything,
so why is he silent over this issue, even though Varanasi is his constituency.
Mr Narendra Modi, you are the Prime Minister, dont you think a word on the
incident wont harm you. Or, are you too concerned about the upcoming elections in
Bihar? Well, only time will tell whether the unrest in Varanasi was actually a pre-
planned move or not. But, one thing is for sure that the political parties in our
country will have to rise up a little over this minimal things and unite to make India
a better place to live in.
Congress MLA Ajay Rai was arrested on Tuesday in connection with a mob
resorting to violence during the Yatra on Monday. The protest was against the
September 22 batoncharge on sadhus and their supporters while they were taking
out a procession for Lord Ganeshas idol immersion in the Ganga.
