In order to harass people of Piplia village in Sardarpur assembly constituency, police destroyed standing crops there.
“In Manawar assembly constituency, many Congress workers face torture as they are framed in false cases. BJP mandal president lodged a false police complaint against MLA representative Devendra Singh Mandloi, a resident of Khandalai village, and police booked him without investigating the matter,” Congressmen added.
The elected representatives are being insulted by not inviting Congress MLAs at government functions. “BJP leaders make every possible attempt to hijack the government programme,” memorandum stated. Congress leaders demanded relevant action against police personnel who favour BJP’s wrongdoing in the district.
