Lathi charge on innocent students is condemnable: BJP

Reacting to the Lathi charge on the students who were protesting against the out of pattern Physics paper for class 12, Brigadier Anil Gupta State spokesperson of the Party has blamed Jammu & Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) for the lapse and demanded that BOPEE must come out with the facts and explain as to how it all happened? The deliberate silence on part of the BOSE is creating a suspicion that it was done with the concurrence of the concerned officials. The onus lies with the Chairman BOSE to come out with the truth.

Brig Gupta also strongly condemned the lathi charge on the protesting students many of whom were young girls. Such high handedness of the local SHO is not only deplorable but deserves severe action against him. Quoting eye witnesses Mrs Rajni Sethi, State Vice President stated that she was appalled to note that girl students were physically handled by male cops and there were no female cops present on the scene. Such acts are against the very concept of “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, a flagship programme of the Modi Government. The Yuva Morcha and Mahila Morcha of the Party have also condemned the uncalled for brutal act of the local police.

Brig Gupta said that the party while condemning the act is hopeful that suitable action will be taken against the defaulter policemen by the Director General of Police.
