On the day of Dussehra, the Delhi Congress’ planned to burn a 50-foot effigy of demon king ‘Ravana’.
However, it was with 16 heads, including two heads representing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
But the Delhi police intervened timely and seized the giant figurine.
The Delhi Congress wanted to burn the effigy to protest the sealing of illegal commercial establishments in the national capital Delhi.
The sealing drive has affected hundreds of small-business owners.
A large number of police personnel were deployed near Shyamlal College in Shahdara area, where Delhi Congress members had organised the ‘Ravan Dahan’ event.
Party leaders said the police did not allow them to light the effigy of the prime minister and chief minister. They reportedly took the effigy away.
The protest was part of the Congress campaign, “Nyay Yudh”, against the sealing drive.
The Congress said it will respond democratically to the police action and torch effigies in all assembly constituencies in Delhi after October 25.>
