Take action against cops who attacked Chharanagar: Congress

The Congress has taken strong exception to the police clampdown on Chharanagar, a colony with about 3,000 houses in Ahmedabad, where members of the denotified tribe, Chharas reside. In a statement, party spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil said, the police clampdown on the poor people living in Chharanagar was without any reason. If any person commits a crime, action should be taken against that person oly, and one should not punish the entire community for it.
Demanding immediate action against responsible police personnel, even as compensating for the loss suffered by the innocent people as result of the cops’ midnight clampdown, Gohil said, those who have fallen victim of the attack include a press photographer, a playwright, and a lawyer. “The incident reflects anti-poor mentality of the BJP government”, he added.
