‘One-sided police action’ irks BJP

 Pat, April 7: Two days after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said his government will not spare those responsible for the recent commul violence in the state, ruling ally BJP on Saturday expressed its displeasure over “one-sided police action” against the majority community. A delegation of Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) leaders on Friday met Bihar police chief and submitted a memorandum demanding a halt to what they called “one-sided police action against the majority community” in districts that witnessed commul violence during the Ram vami processions.

The delegation led by state BJP vice president Devesh Kumar Singh in its memorandum to the Director General of Police K.S. Dwivedi accused the police of having acted in a partisan manner against the majority community in the aftermath of recent commul violence in Bihar.
According to BJP leaders, the party in the memorandum stated that in districts like Aurangabad, landa and Samastipur, the majority community resorted to aggression only after provocative acts by anti-social elements from the minority community. The party leaders alleged that following the outbreak of violence that took place around Ram vami, those belonging to the majority community had been arrested in large numbers, while the administration had chosen to go soft on the minorities.
