The Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has reacted strongly to alleged police brutality on party workers in Bilaspur of Chhattisgarh.
Rahul Gandhi said that dictatorship has become a ‘vocation’ in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime.
He added that people in Chhattisgarh will remember the attack on his party’s workers in Bilaspur as an act of political persecution.
Taking to Twitter a day after police beat up protesting Congress workers in the Chhattisgarh town, leaving several injured, the Congress president trained his guns on the BJP-led Raman Singh government in the state and also tagged a video of the incident.
It need be mentioned that Congress leaders were protesting in Bilaspur an evening before but they were attacked vehemently and needlessly as has been alleged by the Congress sources.
This happened as the Congress workers were injured on Tuesday when police beat them with sticks in Chhattisgarh’s Bilaspur city after they allegedly threw garbage inside a minister’s house.
The Congress claimed its workers were carrying out a peaceful protest against Urban Administration Minister Amar Agrawal but were brutally beaten by the police.
At least 52 Congress workers were arrested and seven of them sustained injuries in the process, the senior police officer said.>
