Mysterious anti-BJP banners were supplied by Gujarat Congress (Video)
Surat, 12 June 2012
As many as 13 large-size anti-BJP banners without the name of publisher and printer were found yesterday in a truck in Tapi district’s Valod.
Today when a local Congress MLA arrived at police station for release of the mini-truck and four persons, it became clear that the banners without the name of printer or publisher were published by Gujarat Congress.
Late in the evening on Modnay when BJP workers in south Gujarat’s Tapi district received specific information that a mini truck containing ‘mysterious’ anti-BJP banners would arrive from Ahmedabad, they rushed to Vedchhi chowkdi. Valod taluka BJP youth morcha president Dhaval Shah, local deputy sarpanch and other party workers stopped the truck and found anti-BJP banners without printer/publisher name lying inside.
BJP workers took driver Salim Nura Ghanchi and three labours Shamji Jadhav, Jayesh Parmar and Dilip Rathod(all from Ahmedabad) to nearest police station.
After thorough questioning the local Police filed a complaint under IPC section 505(kh) against four.
It was revealed by labors and driver that the banners were sent by Congress party from Ahmedabad.
On Tuesday morning Bardoli MLA and Surat district Congress president Kunvarji Halpati arrived at the police station for bail procedure of the four persons arrested.
Speaking to DeshGujarat, Halpati admitted that the banners were printed by his party. When asked why none of the banners mentioned the name of printer and publisher, Halpati replied that it was advertising agency’s fault.
What was the content of the banner:
The tempo had arrived at Valod after circulating several banners on route. It is not known that which types of banners it supplied between Vadodara and Valod. However whatever banners are found in Valod suggest that the banners were meant to create dissatisfaction among local tribals. The banners shower a picture of river front in the city on one side and picture of a poor farmer on the other side. The text said that while river Tapi water is supplied to the cities, the villages are deprived. On the bottom there was a line saying that enough is enough and BJP’s days are numbered now. It seems Congress wanted to showed dissatisfaction among the people and wanted to provoke them over the issue of river water without party name.
