RSS rampage against BJP

Indore: 200 RSS activists in a rare display of rage, attacked the BJP office and ransacked it. Not satisfied with this, they even burnt an effigy of the state C.M. Shivraj Singh Chouhan and shouted slogans against industry minister Kailash Vijayvargiya and local MLA Ramesh Mendola. They accused the state government of shielding culprits and for this very reason a fearless police officer who was probing a recent firing incident was transferred.

The issue dates back a few weeks when on July 23 during a Kawad procession someone fired at Monoj Parmar, a local goon who had earlier been externed. Since the culprit was believed to be an RSS activist and close to BJP MLA Sudarshan Gupta, ASP Rakesh Singh was investigating the matter. He has since been transferred. However, the BJP has not buckled under pressure and the said officer was relieved from the post so that no “wrong signal” could be discerned. RSS on the other hand, argued that the officer who was taking action against the goon should not have been transferred as this would send a “wrong signal”. Manoj Parmar is in central jail booked for fraud. City BJP chief, however, believes that the matter will be resolved amicably through dialogue between the parent organisation and its brainchild.
