A police constable was on Saturday killed and several others injured in Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh in stone-pelting after clashes broke out during a protest by members of the Nishad Party. Eleven persons were arrrested and several have been detained for questioning. There are over 90 persons named in the FIR, including 30 named as accused.Constable Suresh Vats was returning from his duty at the rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the incident took place under the Nonhara area of the Purvanchal district. Yesh Veer Singh, SP Ghazipur, said the constable was killed when the protestors started pelting stones as the police were “trying to clear the roadblock” created by them. The protestors had blocked roads at four places near the venue, he said. The constable succumbed to his injuries.Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took cognizance of the matter and announced an ex-gratia compensation of Rs 40 lakh to the family of the constable. He also directed the district magistrate and SSP to “take strict action against the unruly elements and immediate arrest and legal action against them,” a government statement said. Sanjay Nishad, president of the Nishad Party, demanded a detailed police investigation into the incident. “The BJP is trying to defame us with wrong allegations,” he said.Praveen Nishad, MP of Gorakhpur, and leader of the Nishad Party while talking to The Hindu said Nishad Party had no role in the violence. He claimed activists of the party were staging a peaceful dharna when members of the BJP who were returning from the rally in vehicles started chasing and attacking the Nishad activists.”Due to the attack, local villagers came to the support of our workers and this led to an altercation. The incident regarding the constable (stone-pelting) took place through the BJP workers,” said Mr. Nishad.The Nishads were demanding issuing of SC certificates for their caste under the name Majwar and implementation of a 2016 notifcation brought under the Akhilesh Yadav government, said Mr. Nishad. “The present government is not giving us the certificates even though it is still valid,” said the MP. Nishads are among the 17 most-backward castes in UP who have been over the years struggling for SC status.
Congress’ Gurugram Lok Sabha candidate and former Haryana Finance Minister Capt. Ajay Yadav has expressed confidence that he would emerge the winner, saying that the people had seen through the empty promises of the BJP and the Modi wave has also ebbed. The Congress had on Saturday announced the name of six Lok Sabha candidates for Haryana, including Capt. Yadav.Of the nine Assembly constituencies in the Gurugram Lok Sabha constituency, six are held by the BJP and none by the Congress, but Mr. Yadav said his party always had a strong presence and a dedicated vote bank in South Haryana. He said the election in 2014 was an exception as the people were swept away by the Modi wave, which he said has ebbed now.Capt. Yadav is pitted against BJP leader and Union Minister of State for Planning (Independent Charge) Rao Inderjit Singh, a former Congressman. The Aam Aadmi Party-Jannayak Janata Party alliance, announced two days ago, is yet to name its Gurugram candidate.Of the 27 Assembly constituencies in South Haryana, comprising Faridabad, Gurugram and Bhiwani-Mahendergarh Lok Sabha seats, the BJP holds 15 and Congress just four.Chosen over former Transport Minister Aftab Ahmed and ex-Chief Parliamentary Secretary Rao Dhan Singh — the other two candidates in fray seeking tickets from Gurugram — Capt. Yadav, the party’s most senior Ahirwal leader in the region, said Gurugram recently earning the dubious distinction of being the most polluted city in the world was the biggest “achievement” of the National Democratic Alliance government.‘No varsity campus’ “Under the BJP rule, Gurugram has ceased to be the most sought after IT hub. In five years, the BJP could not construct the campus for the State-run Gurugram University. It is still running from a college building as a stop-gap arrangement. We laid the foundation stone of the Defence University in Binola village, but it has not been completed. The announcement for AIIMS at Manethi in Rewari appears to be yet another empty promise,” said Mr. Yadav.
