Bhubaneswar: It is highly reprehensible that the Center Narendra Modi government and the Yogi Aditya Jaya government of Uttar Pradesh have tried to suppress the perpetrators of the gang-rape and murder of a Scheduled Caste girl in village in the state of Bharat state. It is unfortunate that the police department of the Yogi Adityanath government has detained the family of the deceased and hastily burnt the body of the girl concerned, as well as the leaders of the Indian National Congress, Mr. Rahul Gandhi and Mrs. Prayanka Gandhi, to meet her family. The PCC has condemned the alleged misconduct by Uttar Pradesh police as Congress leaders and MPs went to visit the family of the deceased girl Manisha Baluki. The Odisha Pradesh Congress Scheduled Castes Department today staged a protest in Bhubaneswar’s Master Kachin Chowk demanding the dismissal of the Yogi Adityanath government and justice for the victims, who did not show sincerity in punishing the perpetrators involved in the incident.
Following the idea of a silent protest under the statue of Gandhiji and Bhimrao Ambedkar, a procession from the Congress Congress Scheduled Castes Department marched out of the Congress building and cremated the statue at MasterCanteen Square.
MLAs Suresh Kumar Rautaray, Haldhar Sethi, Sivananda Roy, Shuvendu Mohanty, Rashna Mohapatra, Patnakar Guru, Bishwabhushan Das, Kankalata Mallick, Shiyaghruta Panda, Sankuna Kaher, Devendra Prasad Das, Ramakant Nayak, Kahnei Sethi, Ashok Nayak Prakash Mishra, Naresh Mohanty, Chinmoy Sundar Das, Sushant Tripathi, Satyabrata Nayak, Deo Prasad, Nasir Khan and Kshirod Kumar Behera were among the large number of Congress leaders and activists.
