CPI Condemns Police Attack on Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (October 01, 2020) condemning police lathi-charge on Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka and others:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India strongly condemns the lathi-charge by UP police on Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka and others who were peacefully marching towards Hathras to visit the family members of the 19-year-old rape-murder victim.
It’s a shame that the Yogi Adityanath UP government is still behaving in the most authoritarian way after total failure of law and order in the state. The Party urges the UP government to desist from stopping all genuine protests and heartfelt moves to call on the family members of the deceased.
The Party, while extending solidarity and support to the members of the victim’s family, reiterates its demand that Yogi Adityanath should resign as chief minister.
